The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has recently targeted the electronic cigarette industry with negative advertising cautioning people against nicotine delivery devices, highlighting the various diseases associated with tobacco use. It appears that once again the vaping industry is being lumped in with the tobacco industry – even though they are two entirely separate entities.
The CDC contends that since there isn’t enough information about the long-term safety and effects of electronic cigarette usage, they should not be promoted. Of course, many vapor smokers think that’s the point exactly—that there is not enough known about the devices to compare them to traditional cigarettes.
One electronic cigarette shop owner named John McCullough said to reporters that he would never tell a customer that vaping is 100% safe (and neither would EverSmoke), but the industry is too young for unbiased research to show how good or bad electronic cigarettes are.
“The industry is 7 or 8-years-old,” he said. “We need another 20 before we can actually say, ‘This product is safe,’ or ‘This product is bad,’ and why it is safe or bad.”
Millions of people have begun turning to electronic cigarettes as a better alternative to traditional smoking, which is proven to be harmful to your health and home. The e-cig alternative has also opened up more doors for people to be able to vape in places that otherwise are banned from traditional smoking.
Electronic cigarettes are considered a breath of fresh air because the vapor released is not an offensive smell like the smoke from cigarettes.
While more research needs to be done, there are countless vaping existing studies that has been conducted on these devices up to this point which we encourage you to read so that you can form your own opinion rather than mistaking misinformation for fact.
