In addition, people should not add any substance to e-cigarette or vaping products that are not intended by the manufacturer, including products purchased through retail establishments.

"It is crucial to emphasize that e-cigarettes are not safe, just less harmful than tobacco cigarettes when it comes to vascular health", George said. Every year in the United Kingdom, 20,000 people die from heart and circulatory disease caused by smoking cigarettes - that's more than 50 people a day, or two deaths every hour. "As previously stated, we encourage Missourians to follow the CDC guidance to refrain from using e-cigarette products if you are concerned about these specific health risks, especially while the investigation is ongoing".

Scientists said their study is the first definitive proof that vaping is better for the cardiovascular system than smoking.

An adjunct professor in the Centre for Health Law, Policy and Ethics at the University of Ottawa, Sweanor has been at the forefront of efforts to reduce cigarette smoking in Canada and around the world, for the last 30 years.

Forty patients continued smoking tobacco cigarettes, 37 switched to e-cigarettes with nicotine and 37 switched to e-cigarettes without. "I urge non-users not to even try e-cigarettes at all", Domingo said.

Anyone concerned about their health after using e-cigarettes should call the local poison control center at 1-800-222-1222.

"To put into context, each percentage point improvement in vascular function results in a 13% reduction in cardiovascular event rates such as heart attack". We also found that, in the short term at least, regardless of whether the e-cigarette does or does not contain nicotine, a person will see vascular health improvements compared to smoking a traditional cigarette. Vaping and e-cigarettes are the same thing.

And they warned that vaping is not safe, merely "less harmful" than smoking.

But for "chronic" tobacco smokers - those who have smoked at least 15 cigarettes a day for two years - switching resulted in an nearly immediate benefit.

He said: "The crunch is that is what this study shows is a change in function, so that you change the ability of the vessel to dilate, but what long-term smoking does may have actually changed the structure of the vessel so however much you stop smoking, it will never get back to normal because it's changed permanently".

Last week, the agency reported the first "chemical of concern" it detected in patient samples: vitamin E acetate, an additive sometimes used in these products because it resembles THC oil and may be used as a thickening ingredient. "The health benefits of quitting smoking are significant, and we are committed to educating Americans about the steps they can take to become tobacco-free".
