To Vape Or Not To Vape? Find Your Reasons Here..
As many of us know, the vaping industry is often criticized by the media with the majority of the facts being ill-informed and inaccurate. We hope to shed some light on some of the most common vaping myths that have been popularized by opponents of the e-cigarette industry.
What Is Vaping?
Vaping involves inhaling and exhaling the vapor produced by an electronic cigarette or similar device. The term is used because smoking is irrelevant to a scenario where there is no smoke being generated. Vaping is often touted as smoking without the negative effects: no bad breath, no cigarette burns, less risk of cancer and other smoking-related diseases.
Good Or Bad?
Laboratory tests around the world continue to confirm that vaping is safer than smoking.Surveys conducted around the globe prove that people who have transitioned from smoking to vaping report feeling healthier than they did a few years ago. As we all are very well aware, smoking comes along with several health risks. Tobacco smoke can damage your blood cells, your heart and your entire cardiovascular system.
Fortunately, according to an e-cigarette study published trading tobacco for vapes can help smokers wean off of nicotine while reducing their risks for hypertension and other heart diseases.
Myths And Reality
Nicotine Causes Cancer
We feel like this was used more as a scare tactic than anything, but you can understand why people would draw that conclusion if they don’t know whats right. There have been multiple studies done and none have found a link between nicotine and cancer. This means that it has to be the thousands of chemicals in cigarettes that cause the cancer. In fact, nicotine is about as harmful for your body as caffeine.
Completely Different Products Are Referred To As “E-Cigs”
When most people think of an electronic cigarette or a Vape, they think of something like that which is shown below.
They look like regular cigarettes (color and design may vary, basic shape remains the same). They have cartridges which come pre-filled, and must be replaced.
Whereas In an actual vape shop such as vape Toronto, you’ll find products like those below (also known as Advanced Personal Vaporizers—or “Vape Pens”). APVs contain electronics allowing the user to regulate the power level, produce a moderate amount of vapor, and are generally decent priced. Mods are for use with user-modifiable atomizers, can potentially produce tons of vapor, and can be quite expensive.
E-cigs Are More Addictive Than Regular Cigarettes
False. Two independent studies conducted and found that e-cigs do not deliver nicotine as efficiently as regular cigarettes. In fact, e-cigs deliver nicotine in lower levels than tobacco smoke thereby making it a lot safer and less addictive than the regular e cigarettes.
Second Hand Vaping
Several studies have been completed on the effects of second hand vaping. One such research showed that normal exhaled breath contained more volatile compounds than exhaled vapor.
