A new study has found that switching from smoking to vaping can restore the lungs’ primary defence against harmful substances. 

This decreases the risk of infection and lung diseases such as COPD and can help to improve symptoms of pre-existing lung diseases.

The study, conducted by a team led by Professor Polosa of the University of Catania, looked at the impact of switching to vaping on a mechanism called mucociliary clearance (MCC).

MCC is the process through which tiny hairlike structures on our lungs, called cilia, work like an escalator using mucus to trap and move harmful substances out of our body.

Cigarette smoke contains chemicals that are toxic to cilia and increase mucus production. The damage to cilia means that smokers’ bodies find it harder to remove those harmful substances.
