Vaping could be as bad for the heart as smoking cigarettes, a new study suggests.


The findings triggered warnings that electronic cigarettes may be “far more dangerous” than was thought.

Trials found that a typical session using a device caused similar effects to the main heart artery as smoking a cigarette....The trial involved a group of adult smokers, whose hearts were monitored while they vaped, and when they smoked ordinary cigarettes.

Researchers said a a typical vaping session had a similar impact on stiffness of the aorta - the main artery into the heart - as smoking one regular cigarette.

Lead researcher Prof Charalambos Vlachopoulos, from the University of Athens Medical School said: "We measured aortic stiffness. If the aorta is stiff you multiply your risk of dying, either from heart diseases or from other causes.”...The unfavourable effects shown from a 30 minute session vaping - described by researchers as a typical habit - were similar to those from five minutes’ smoking a cigarette, the study found. ..The cardiologist said the long-term risks of vaping remain unknown - but that he would not recommend their use.

”The value of the acute study is that it gives an insight of how long your aorta is stressed throughout the day - because this happens throughout the day, this is something that happens repeatedly,” he said.

“There could be long term heart dangers. They are far more dangerous than people realise.”
