Dr. Magnus Lundbäck, a researcher at the Karolinska Institute in the Department of Clinical Sciences, Danderyd Hospital seems to have made n monumental discovery that could destroy e-cigarettes and the vaping industry as we know it.
In a study of 15 volunteers (who have never vaped but smoke infrequently), Dr. Lundbäck supplied all participants with e-cigarettes, some with nicotine and a control group without nicotine.
The results found that with 30 minutes the group that used devices containing nicotine, the participants had an increase in blood pressure, heart rate and increased arterial stiffness. The group who received the stimulant returned to baseline after the stimulant wore off. The control surprisingly didn't have an stimulant related effects from vaping e-liquid with no nicotine content.
In other words, the blood vessels constricted and the heart rate increased when the circulatory system was stimulated.
A shocking discovery! A stimulant such as nicotine actually serves its purpose when in an e-cigarette.
This research was presented on Monday to the European Respiratory Society International Congress. Other 'researchers' were surely surprised at this new information regarding the effect of nicotine upon the human body.
No word on whether Dr. Magnus Lundback is going to continue his win streak by studying the effects of caffeine when in coffee versus decaf.
