The British Broadcasting Corporation, The Mail, and the media generally have claimed and made publications headlining possibilities without clear proof that vaping could be harmful to the lungs. It's ironic and sad how the media irresponsibly for their cravings for page hits, tamper with the vape rehabilitation of smokers ultimately causing more tobacco harm than reducing it.

A team organized by Birmingham University's David Thickett and other members including Scott, Dosanjh, Lewis, Lugg carried out their research on vape products in an attempt to show that it is harmful. The same set of people have worked together in 2016 but it was to show that vape has more harmful properties than smoking.

Their research proceeded with an outdated e-cigarette tool that was popular at that time. An old generation device consisting of a 6500mAh battery and a new coil of 1.8 ohms fitted before the experiment. Whether the coil was primed or not, the research didn't say, but we know they had 3 wheezes at thirty seconds intervals using a liquid of 36mg.

And they concluded in their write up saying that its e-cigs may seem to be helpful for those attempting to stop the conventional smoking but is just like an alternative for nicotine delivery. Well, what point were they trying to make? Vaping is actually a nicotine supply method and they are also correct that it diminishes the traditional method of smoking.

They also stated that e-cigs could be more dangerous than we know as the results they claimed they saw were matching those found in constant smokers and patients suffering from lung diseases as a result of smoking.

In the experiment they conducted, the samples were converted to liquids and then cells in a dish a was exposed to them for a period of 24 hours. This experiment sure doesn't imitate the natural vaping experience and makes their claims a joke.

They made certain conclusions mentioning that vaping could cause harm to cells of the immune system but didn't say exactly how. Yet, their lab experiments do not depict in vivo conditions.

David Thickett claimed that a lot of e-cigarette producers and companies would have an obligation to say e-cigs are safe because they were brought up by tobacco companies.

Vapers, on the other hand, agree that vaping is not the safest thing around because nothing in this world is completely safe. But the fact remains, it is safer than tobacco at least 95 percent safer. That is the whole point of the vaping method, to reduce the harm of tobacco.

Thickett seems to see a scheme or plot where there isn't. England public health supports the fact that vaping poses negligible harm to those that used it and it reduces the harm of tobacco and he suspects they've been duped into it
