Since the introduction of e-cigarettes a few years ago, the diversity and range of vape related products has grown quickly, second only to the unfair and baseless rumors that surround them. Everyone has heard that they are either completely safe for anyone, or that they are just about a death-sentence that not even smoking can hold a candle to. Well I’m here to tell you, that through careful study and experience, right-minded people the world over have put a lot of time into finding out the truth behind these myths, so that we can give vaping the fair account that it deserves. These are some of the most common mistakes that people make about vaping, so that they can be cleared up.
An e-cig is an e-cig is an e-cig
There are in fact a variety of products that market themselves as vapes or e-cigarettes, and for the most part, they are completely different. There are typically three types. Cheap ones with replaceable cartridges and minimal control over flavours and nicotine content that you find in petrol stations, and is produced by tobacco companies, advanced personal vapes that give the user control over temps and flavours, and a sort of hybrid between the two in the form of cheap personal vapers. Each one varies in price, health-risks and overall enjoyment, depending on how much you are willing to splash out on them.
We have no idea what goes into vape-juice
If anyone tries to use this as an example of why vapes are bad for you, tell them to go away and do a little research. Many e-liquids are made by hand by those who sell them, and are made up of no more than four ingredients (most of which can be found in common household items and foodstuffs like toothpaste, spray ‘n cook and flavouring). The ingredients have a certain degree.
Vapes have more concentrated nicotine than cigarettes do
This one is an outright fallacy, and is exactly the kind of incomplete rumour that one could be expected to be started by a tobacco company. The reason for this, is that no two e-liquids are the same, and are often custom mixed to have anywhere between 12mg of nicotine in the mix (for those who are struggling to stop smoking, and as little as 0mg (that’s right, none). The nicotine ratio is completely dependent on the preferences of the vaper, choosing a low dose for more flavour, and a higher one for a more satisfying vape.
These rumours have been carefully crafted and distributed to demonise vapes as something far less healthy than even smoking cigarettes. Such harmful lies should be disputed. As far as health goes, vaping is indeed the preferable alternative to cigarettes, so if you would like to buy vape kits or e-cigarettes online, be sure to visit Vaper’s Corner’s digital space and test these rumours out for yourself.
