[UK] E-cigarettes ARE safer than tobacco, study confirms: Vaporizers harmed just 2 genes in human lungs - compared to 123 genes mutated by cigarette smoke
But a new set of experiments performed in the UK have shown lung tissue is barely affected at all by e-cigarettes - compared to the crippling affect cigarette smoke has one our organs. Lungs exposed to tobacco suffered changes in 123 genes - mutating c
