Do You Think E-cig Science is Unduly Scrutinized?

samanthasamantha Posts: 3,553Administrator, Moderator admin

E-cig science is ever-evolving and on the cutting edge of technology development. But some don’t want to keep it that way. Is E-cig science plagued by scrutiny? You be the judge.

Ecigs have come a long way, but even after years on the market they are still widely misunderstood and unfairly judged. According to an article on The Guardian “e-cigarettes have really divided the public health community, with researchers who have the common aim of reducing the levels of smoking and smoking-related harm suddenly finding themselves on opposite sides of the debate.” 

The media is heating up the disagreement on e-cigs. This puts the science and development under added scrutiny and causes unnecessary, widespread confusion. This paints “an unclear picture of what we know (and don’t know) about e-cigarettes is being portrayed, with vapers feeling persecuted and people who have not yet tried to quit mistakenly believing that there’s no point in switching…” 

Necessary studies and research could be hindered and delayed because of the scrutiny on e-cigs, The Guardian article goes on to share, “an unexpected problem has been the unwillingness of some in the vaping community to help us recruit. And they’re put off because of fears that whatever we find, the results will be used to paint a negative picture of vaping, and vapers, by people with an agenda to push.” 

The lack of willing participants to join in studies means less data to provide scientists with the most well rounded view. The fear of participating because the information could be manipulated does not bode well for the other side of the aisle either. Having the clearest and most concise information will help everyone, and help close the gap in misunderstanding.


If you have seen or read any new vapor studies, please share them on this thread! The more we all know and the more accurate information we all share, the better for the overall industry. :)

    I think all science faces scrutiny and requires copious amounts of data to establish it's credibility, as it should. 

    I believe vaping science lacks data not because of a lack of willing participants but a lack of study sponsors providing financial resources.
