Smoking remains the leading causes of preventable death in both the United States and the United Kingdom. Over a million women participated in a study conducted at the University of Oxford in the U.K, which resulted in women who smoke more than a triple their risk of dying early, compared to nonsmokers, and women who kick the habit, which can virtually eliminate this increased risk of premature death.

The study took place between 1996 and 2001, and researchers recruited 1.3 million female participants from the ages of 50 to 65. The women filled out questionnaires detailing their lifestyles, medical status along with socio-demographic factors. Three to eight years later, researchers followed up and resurvey the women.

Twenty percent of women were smokers, at the start of the survey. Twenty-eight percent were former smokers and fifty-two percent, never smoked. All 1.3 million participants were registered in U.K.'s national health system, so death and cause of death were recorded. By 2011, 66,000 had passed away.

The researchers noticed a positive effect that quitting had on a women's life span. “Those who quit smoking before they reached 40 avoided more than 90% of the increased risk of premature death from cigarettes, while women who stopped even earlier -- before age 30 -- avoided 97% of the added risk,” according to the TIME.com article.

“It is never too late to kick the habit. Electronic cigarettes can help you switch over to a healthy lifestyle,” said a representative from South Beach Smoke. “We can only hope that with continued research, more and more individuals will decide to toss out their traditional cigarettes and pick up an e-cig.”

Electronic cigarettes, or e-Cigs as they are popularly known, are a high-tech, non-flammable solution for obtaining nicotine without exposure to tobacco. Smokers enjoy a dose of vaporized liquid nicotine solution and exhale water vapor that resembles a puff of smoke, providing a physical sensation and flavor akin to inhaled tobacco smoke. A South Beach Smoke electronic cigarette contains no tobacco, smoke, tar or carcinogens – the most detrimental components of standard cigarettes.
This means, not only can smokers enjoy the experience they crave but, they can do so without the life threatening side effects and secondhand smoke intruding on others.

South Beach Smoke is one of the early innovators in the electronic cigarette industry, and is well positioned as a leader in the market. South Beach Smoke is one of the top three rated Electronic Cigarette companies in the world. Ranked number one on numerous electronic cigarette sites, South Beach Smoke is praised for its high quality products, maximum vapor, delicious flavored cartridges and superior customer service. Electronic Cigarettes and vaping are the cornerstones of a lifestyle movement that has proven a threat to the traditional cigarette and smoking market.
