The forth instalment to the busting vape myths series. Fake news continues to create myths and misconceptions that like a plume of cloud, get blown out of proportion. So, what are some more common myths about vaping? Where and how do these come about and more importantly what is fact from fiction? This blog is going to explore these in a bit more detail and debunk them! Time to get comfortable, top up your e-juice if you haven’t already done so, maybe grab a beverage and let’s get into it!
Vaping is Just as Bad as Smoking
This couldn’t be more wrong. Vaping is 95% less harmful than smoking traditional tobacco products and studies have proved this. When tobacco from a cigarette is burned, thousands of harmful chemicals in the smoke are created. E-liquid on the other hand is heated at high temperature and there is no chemical change when it turns into vapour.
You Can’t Vape E-Liquid Without Nicotine
Vape devices don’t require nicotine to work and liquid nicotine is an optional ingredient to e-liquid. There are actually many benefits to vaping without nicotine including better flavour and a smoother experience.
It’s Safe to Vape When Pregnant
Vaping is NOT recommended for pregnant women. Recent studies have shown that women who vape while pregnant are 33% more likely to have low birthweight babies. Babies that are born weighing less than 5.5 pounds have a higher risk of complications and long-lasting health issues. The study also showed an increase of preterm births compared to women that don’t vape.
Vaping is Just as Addictive as Smoking
It’s important to know what gets people addictive to smoking and it’s nicotine. Nicotine naturally occurs in tobacco products however with vaping it’s a optional additive. The level of nicotine is often much less than tobacco and the amount is easier to control. Without adding nicotine to e-liquid there is nothing to get your body addicted to vaping.
Vaping Doesn’t Help People Quit Smoking
This common statement is just stupid and incorrect. Many studies conducted have proven that people are more likely to successfully quit smoking with the aid of vaping devices. Tobacco product sales have actually decreased all over the world while vaping has increased.
