The E-cig Science

The project “La scienza dello svapo” was born in 2014, originally addressing exclusively to an Italian audience. The purpose of this project was to raise users awareness of electronic smoke as healthier alternative to traditional smoking and as a way to safeguard the health and the environment.

TRUSTiCERT monitors the most significant discoveries in the field of electronic cigarette and it’s committed to spreading it freely and fully. Aware that scientific articles often use a technical and complex language, “La scienza dello svapo” also summarizes the content of these kind of articles, using a simple jargon. In this way anyone can receive reliable and accurate information about electronic cigarettes. The project has been so successful that in 2015 TRUSTiCERT decided to extend this service to a foreign audience. That’s the reason why “La scienza dello svapo” turns into “The e-cig science”.
