The volunteers completed questionnaires and provided breath saliva and urine samples The researchers found significantly lower levels of toxic chemicals and cancer-causing substances (carcinogens) in the samples of those of former smokers who had been using e-cigarettes or nicotine replacement therapy (NRT)compared to current smokers
We know how you feel You pick up a newspaper turn on the TV check into Facebook?you know what?s lurking just ahead Stories designed to scare everyone about vaping Every day it?s something new
