While much debate exists around electronic cigarettes and why you should, or should not use them, two of the most powerful tools to have on your side is the ability to understand common sense and being able to research. Don’t just take a company’s word for something; learn as much as possible. One of the best places to start on is the EverSmoke Knowledge Center, where you can find fact-based, propaganda-free informational articles on all things related to e-smoking. Here is a look at some of the most common e-cigarettes myths, and the truth behind them.
-Electronic cigarettes are not a safe alternative. False! This is completely untrue, as they contain none of the tobacco or chemicals as tobacco. They do contain nicotine, at varying levels the user can choose from, making them a viable alternative.
-E-Cigarettes are not a real method for quitting smoking. True. E-cig users all have personal preferences on how they choose to use them, and fit them into their lives and daily usage, however per the FDA, electronic cigarettes are not a means by which smokers can quit smoking. Countless smokers have switched to vaping successfully, however, and aren’t looking back to their days of smoke.
-Electronic cigarettes are not regulated. Not quite true, as they are in the beginning stages of regulation by the FDA. The products are treated just like tobacco products and are prohibited for sale to minors.
-E-Cigarettes cause cancer too. False. There is no proof to back up this statement. The long term effects of e-cigarettes are not known yet, and they just haven’t been around long enough for studies to prove it.
-There’s no disclosure as to what is in the e-liquid. False. Depends on the brand, because this sort of generalization does not apply to brands that choose to let their users know what they are purchasing and using. Many brands do not, however, so investigate before investing in a brand. A good company will give you all the details.
