Are e-cigarettes really a healthier alternative to cigarettes?

Vaping vs Smoking


Once upon a time people were allowed to smoke on airplanes, in shopping malls and even at the movies. In the 21st century, however, this is no longer the case as more people are putting out their cigs for good. Stringent smoking regulations and petrifying anti-smoking campaigns abound. Yet for the smoker who really wants to smoke, this is no deterrent. Unfortunately, one can’t deny the health implications with the prolonged smoking of cigarettes. Luckily technology is advancing every day, offering a healthier and more sophisticated alternative to cigarettes for the endangered smoker. The electronic cigarette along with e-liquids are igniting a new generation of smoker. But is vaping really a healthier alternative to cigarettes?

To answer this, let’s take a look at some of main differences between the two:

The figures don’t lie

The vaping vs smoking battle has been raging for quite some time and, as with most health-related debates, the conclusion seems to be somewhat subjective. When it comes to smoking cigarettes, the statistics don’t lie. According to the World Health Organisation (WHO) a seventh of the world’s population are smokers. Even more shockingly, around six million people die every year as a result of smoking cigarettes, of direct and indirect causes.

The chemical balance – the main differences between a cigarette and an e-cig

While there isn’t enough conclusive scientific evidence that suggests e-cigarettes are healthy per se, as some e-liquids still contain nicotine, it is a fact that vaping is the healthier alternative to cigarettes. The American Lung Association states that a cigarette contains some 600 ingredients that produce 7 000 chemicals of which 69 are known to cause cancer and other illnesses. On the contrary, a recent expert review by Public Health England, found that e-cigarettes are substantially less harmful than tobacco – around 95% healthier than smoking regular cigarettes. The vapour inhaled through an e-cigarette contains no harmful tobacco and consists of only four ingredients; Propylene Glycol, Vegetable Glycerol, nicotine and flavourings. E-liquids are available in different strengths and some contain no nicotine at all.

Vaping vs smoking – e-cigs are not only healthier, but more enjoyable too

As much as any cigarette smoker will tell you they love smoking, they will have most likely tried to kick the habit numerous times. If it wasn’t for the addiction factor, the ashtray mouth, tobacco infused clothes and nicotine stained fingers would have done the job. While e-liquid does contain nicotine in various strengths, it tastes great, no one around you is subjected to second-hand smoke and your fingers remain spotless. Further, there isn’t the same negative connotation to vaping as there is to smoking cigarettes. Vaping is seen more as a hobby than an addiction, bringing with it a flair of elegance and high-end style.
