The study that highlighted that those who smoke AND vape were X times more likely….

Can I assume that the study looked at exactly that? Not

2. Those who vaped

But instead those who smoked and vaped?

That’s a great way to obfuscate the findings surely? That leads to a conclusion that potentially tells us what we know about smoking but still doesn’t research specifically to what degree vaping is less harmful or not than smoking.

The article if that was the study then is in one part a bit ‘clickbaity” and in the other part about as helpful as using the word ‘drink water’.

It would be cloudy water, just as this study appears to be on the surface of the post.

Can you expand on the tests?
