Before starting into vaping, I wanted to do a bit of research to understand how safe and how would vaping compare to regular cigars. My honest opinion would be that if you have never smoked then DO NOT START VAPING, however if you are an ex-smoker than I would definitely have a look over these articles and give vaping a try:

Ecigs Inconvenient truth

E-cigarettes around 95% less harmful than regular tobacco

Public Health England – E-cigarettes safer than smoking

Behind the Vapor

I will be updating the list on an ongoing basis with articles I find interesting and that are from a reliable and trustworthy source.

If you are interested in having a look over ecig studies that have been done over the past year(s), below you will have a list with links:
