Smokers can improve the health of their hearts within weeks of switching to e-cigarettes, the largest trial of its kind shows.
The month-long study of 114 smokers suggests vaping has the potential to reduce heart attack and stroke risk.
The team, at the University of Dundee, stressed vaping was "not safe" - just less harmful than tobacco.
The British Heart Foundation said stopping smoking was the single best thing you could do for your heart.
Chemicals in cigarette smoke narrow arteries as they get furred up with fatty deposits increasing the risk of a deadly blockage. Ultimately smoking doubles your risk of having a heart attack.
But the researchers said the current evidence on vaping was "very poor" and often assessed the impact of a single e-cigarette on heart health.
So they monitored people's blood vessels a month after they were switched to e-cigarettes on the trial.
They focused on how blood vessels expand when a wave of blood rushes through, by measuring "flow-mediated dilation".
The more the blood vessels are able to expand the healthier they are. Flow-mediate dilation scores have been closely linked to the long-term risk of heart attacks and stroke.

Seems the main issues with vaping are cannabis oil, Vitamin E, aftermarket alterations and not letting teens get hooked on it -- not the practice itself, which is increasingly obviously far better for you than smoking.

May I suggest a slight change to the title:

SWITCHING TO VAPING DRAMATICALLY BOOSTS SMOKERS' HEART RISK

We are not talking about health, but unhealthy dangers.

The study says the exact opposite of that -- if you already smoke, and you switch to vaping, your heart health improves.

Removing the "tar" and other impurities from that tobacco smoke simply means a few less poisons for your lungs to deal with...

That nicotine will still kill you eventually, just a little more slowly..
