SOUTHAMPTON, England, September 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ —

In the most comprehensive chemical comparison to date between smoke and e-cigarette emissions, scientists at British American Tobacco ("BAT") have found evidence that e-cigarette vapour* has significantly lower levels of toxicants than conventional cigarette smoke.

Analysis of vapour emitted by the Vype ePen – a commercially available e-cigarette manufactured by Nicoventures, a company owned by BAT, – revealed that toxicant levels in e-pen vapour were 92 to 99% lower (depending on which regulatory list of toxicants is used) than in cigarette smoke. The findings were published today in Chemical Research in Toxicology, a peer-reviewed publication by the American Chemical Society.
