Big Tobacco is losing a lot of money because of vapor and e-cigarettes. As such, you are bound to hear plenty of myths thrown around about e-cigs.
Fortunately, we live in the age of the Internet, so we don’t need to rely on false facts from the media. Although you will find plenty of lies on the Internet as well, you can always double check your sources.
Today, the Artisan Company would like to present some of those facts and analyze whether they are true or false. Let’s get started, shall we?
#1 Vaping Is Just “Electronic Smoking.”
Talk about ridiculous myths, eh? First of all, smoking involves the burning of tobacco and more than 9,600 other chemicals to create smoke.
Vaping creates vapor and e-cigarettes don’t “burn” the vape juice to make that happen. In all actuality, the e-juice is heated up by a component called an atomizer. Then, the fluid converts to water vapor, which you inhale.
So no, this “electronic smoking” debacle is just a false equivalence to discredit vapers.
#2 You Can Get Secondhand Smoke from E-Cigs
Pretty much an extension of the argument above. If e-cigs don’t burn anything, how are you supposed to get “secondhand smoke” from them?
The vapor e-cigarettes produce non-toxic, besides smelling sweet. Well, that’s assuming everyone around you enjoys your particular tastes in e-liquid.
#3 Vaping Is Harmful to the Environment
Whenever you see this accusation thrown around on the Internet, it’s usually without any supporting evidence.
In fact, Vapor4Life offers the exact reasons why vapor and e-cigarettes are eco-friendly. It’s a very well-worded argument, but here’s the gist of it:
Cigarettes produce an enormous amount of waste in the form of cigarette butts – e-cigs don’t.
E-cig batteries are recyclable.
Tobacco smoke is a contributing factor in air pollution.
Many forest fires are started because people don’t know how to put out their cigs;
All in all, vapor and e-cigarettes are nothing to worry about when it comes to eco-friendliness.
#4 E-Cigs Contain Nicotine
At least, in this case, we have to admit the critics are truthful. Nicotine in itself is not addictive or a carcinogen, but it can cause dependence when used with tobacco products.
And yes, when you buy e-liquid online, you will find a selection of them with various degrees of nicotine.
On the other hand, there are also plenty of vape juices that contain none of it. They still pack the same flavor and can help you quit the unhealthy habit of smoking
