Vapers Have More Good Bacteria Than Smokers. It is true. Add another great health benefit to the list, my vaping brethren. That’s right my friends, recent studies have shown that vapers have significantly more healthy microbiomes in the body than tobacco smokers. I always had a “gut feeling” vaping was better for your health than smoking. Now I have scientific evidence to back it up. Bacteria in the gut is essential to good health. And vapers have better guts.
Vapers Have More Good Bacteria Than Smokers
Of course, we’re not saying that vaping gives you a healthy belly. The likelihood is that it is damaging. However, it is considerably less damaging than smoking cigarettes. Researchers at Newcastle University conducted an unprecedented study with remarkable results. What’s substantial is that a better gut results in overall better well being. Most diseases start in your gut and have negative effects on other systems and organs of the body. And it’s not just the bacteria in your gut that has bad microbiomes. Its also your mouth and throat, intestines and colon. So, it should come as no surprise that cancer is so prevalent in smokers.
Smoking causes cancer. I think we can all agree on that. So how does it cause cancer? Well, your body changes in accordance with what you put inside it. The chemicals in a tobacco cigarette are poisonous. These toxic chemicals poison the good bacteria in your body. Bad bacteria leads to illness. It’s pretty simple science.
Smokers Get Cancer
Those humans that succumbed to colon cancer and colitis have increased levels of the bacteria Prevotella. The studies show that smokers have an increased level of Prevotella. But that’s not all folks. Prevotella plays a significant role in Chron’s disease and obesity as well. So munch on those Doritos and light up a smoke. Make sure you leave a little time to plan your funeral. Coffins are expensive these days. So, may want to consider cremation.
One vaping a day keeps the doctor away. As Dr. Christopher Stewart discovered in his research at Newcastle, “The bacterial cells in our body outnumber our own human cells and our microbiomes weigh more than our brain, yet we are only just beginning to understand its importance on our health. More investigation is needed but to find that vaping is less-damaging than smoking on our gut bacteria adds to the incentive to change to e-Cigarettes and for people to use them as a tool to quit smoking completely.”
So you don’t have to take my word for it. There it is. The doctors sampled saliva, fecal and buccal bacteria. Those smokers in the study had what was noted as ” huge increases” in the bacteria. Another publication found that their results agreed with Newcastle. PerrJ found microorganisms in the human digestive tract ridden with bad bacteria as a direct result from smoking tobacco.
There are other types of probiotic bacterias that are harmed by the chemicals of tobacco. Bacteroides are not only harmed but suppressed and even killed off. This is directly linked to high rates of Chron’s disease. A recent study was done at Harvard also indicates that healthy bacteria usually means a healthy body. Whereas, damaged microbiomes clearly lead to poor health and secondary issues.
Do You Have The Guts To Quit?
You now know that Vapers Have More Good Bacteria Than Smokers. So, what are you going to do about it? Well, I should hope you would inform all of your friends that smoke cigarettes that vaping is a healthier choice for starters. There are many benefits to vaping, especially when compared to smoking. This is one of the more profound. If you were on the fence we hope this swayed you from the dark side. Happy Vaping, my healthier friends.
