You all are probably well aware of the controversy that surrounds electronic cigarettes. Anything that is relatively new and takes away from the tobacco industry is obviously going to be attacked from all ends. As a result, there are many myths and exaggerations that float around regarding the e-cig health and safety.
Below are four common vaping embellishments that you may hear from people who are traditional smokers.
1. Electronic cigarettes are a fire hazard.
E-cigs do contain a heating element, but unlike cigarettes, there is no combustion process or open flame. Cigarette users are much more likely to start a fire through user careless. With an e-cig, as long as you buy products that are high quality and act responsibly with the batteries and e-liquid, you shouldn’t have a problem.
2. Electronic cigarettes contain antifreeze.
This may be one of the biggest e-cig exaggerations floating around. Let’s hope that any company that is reputable in any way would not put anti-freeze in their products. Propylene glycol, which is used in the liquid of e-cigs, is often found in medications and various foods. Ethylene glycol is what is found in anti-freeze. Big difference!
3. Vaping is more addictive than smoking.
This is simply not true. Both contain nicotine, but with the e-cig you can reduce your nicotine levels at any time. The vaping hobby may be more addictive in pleasure and flavor, but not due to nicotine. You can have cartridges ranging from 0 milligrams (mg) of nicotine to 18 mg. It is completely your choice.
4. Vapor from e-cigs is same as smoke from traditional cigarettes.
Wrong! Cigarette smoke releases carcinogens into the air with every puff. When a person vapes, the cloudlike fog they release is actually odorless water vapor.
