Four Vape Myths that Keep People Smoking
Friday, 27 May 2016
Whether you’re a vaper or not, you’ll probably be aware of the controversy surrounding vaping and e-cigarettes. As with any new product, especially one associated with the tobacco industry, e-cigs have come under fire with many people (usually seasoned smokers) claiming that they’re worse for you than regular cigarettes.
Myth one: Vape pens contain anti-freeze
This one is one of the most ridiculous of the e-cig exaggerations because let’s face it – no reputable company would be putting anti-freeze in their products for people to inhale! The truth of the matter is, e-liquids contain propylene glycol; this is often an ingredient in various foods and medicinal drugs. The product that is found in anti-freeze is in fact ethylene glycol – not the same thing at all!
Myth two: Vape pens cause fires
Myth three: Vaping is more addictive than smoking
Myth four: Vaper from vape pens contains the same stuff as cigarette smoke
Whilst cigarettes release carcinogens into the air each time someone takes a drag, the vaper released when vaping is simply water vapour. Cigarettes contain nasties such as rat poison, tar, cyanide and even arsenic – they don’t call them ‘death sticks’ for nothing…
E-liquids contain nicotine, but none of the other toxins and carcinogens that are inside each and every cigarette.
From our simple exposé, it’s evident that the myths and negative connotations surrounding vaping just aren’t true – so don’t fall for the lies! If you’re a smoker looking for a healthier alternative, then vaping is the perfect substitute.
