New Study: Breakthrough for Asthmatic Smokers

E Liquid Asthma

There is good news in the industry for asthmatic smokers who are considering switching to e liquid. According to the new study published in Discovery Medicine this week, there is remarkable health benefits associated with switching from the traditional cigarette to e-liquid products. The study was aimed specifically to asthmatic smokers. The result showed that smoker who switched to e juice had a significant improvement in their respiratory and lung functions over the course of six months.

The case study

The study was conducted on 18 asthmatic smokers who were experiencing mild and moderate asthma, as they switch from traditional cigarettes to modern e juice. The study was done over six months of regular follow-up visits to help analyze the difference in their lung and respiratory functions, while they were switching from tobacco cigarettes to e liquid products.

The findings

Possibly the most surprising result of the study was that some respiratory and lung functions damaged could be reversed when smokers turned to drip juice. Other medical studies thought that this would be nearly impossible and poses more questions on how e juice could lead to serious health turn around for long time smokers. The findings came after last year's report published on Public health England, which stated that e liquid products are about 95% safer than tobacco cigarettes. That is why Professor Ricardo Polosa of the University of Catania conducted a study, focusing on asthmatic smokers.

According to Polosa, most asthma patients who smoke show an accelerated decline in airflow obstruction and lung function, and even worse, reduced response to anti-asthma drugs unlike asthmatics that do not smoke. This is because asthmatic smokers could not do without nicotine if traditional cigarettes were the only alternative. The study confirms the point that has been known by the medical scientific for decades: nicotine itself is not harmful as many people believe.


While opponents of vaping constantly warn that e liquid devices lead to smoking the real thing and increased respiratory and lung malfunctions, now most respected researchers are stating that e juice products are actually doing the opposite. The data from the United States over the past years has shown no evidence to support the claims by anti-vaping advocates.

The warning is negligent because it misrepresents the risk-benefit profile of e liquid products for the individual patients. The opponents telling all smokers that the risk of trying to use e juice could potential increase respiratory and lung malfunction is unfortunate. It is not at all, consistent with scientific evidence. The science explicitly demonstrates that there are incredible medical benefits to patients who are able to substantially cut down the use of tobacco cigarettes or quit.


While these findings are still preliminary, and lots of research should be conducted to verify the veracity of the results, it is apparent indication that any smokers who want to try e juice could help their lung and respiratory health by eliminating further damage or reversing the condition in the long run. In short, the simple act of switching from tobacco cigarette smoking to e liquid use could ultimately save patients' lives.

We hope that with the publication of this new study, more controlled and larger scientific researches would further help explore how the drip juice can help aesthetic cigarette smokers. If you are a smoker looking to capitalize on the recent finding, you can buy our e liquids. We stock various flavor settings and nicotine concentrations that will get you the ultimate asthma boost.
