You can go to the website of an online store and make a seemingly unusual purchase in two clicks. But what is hiding there in the box? There are many myths regarding that. For many first-time e-cigarette smokers, the vapor tastes odd, more like hookah than cigarette smoke. But the ones containing Nicotine salts taste different and can also be used with PODs. The popularity of vaping is constantly growing, and along with the popularity, the number of myths about this trend is growing. These vaping myths can scare a lot of people considering switching to an e-cigarette. Let's take a look at the 5 most popular myths and debunk them to smithereens.

1.        Vaping is as Harmful as Cigarettes

It is believed that smoking vape is just as dangerous to health as smoking regular cigarettes. It is not true. Hardly anything in this world is 100% safe, but research shows that e-cigarettes are significantly safer than traditional cigarettes. [1] The nicotine in e-liquid is addictive, but e-cigarettes do not produce tar or carbon monoxide, which are just two of the most harmful elements produced by cigarettes for smoking. Public Health England conducted research and concluded that "e-cigarettes are 95% safer than burnt tobacco and can help you quit smoking." American, German, and Japanese scientists agree with this statement. [2]

2.        Passive Vaping is Harmful to Humans

We all know that secondhand smoke has a negative impact on health. Therefore, it is not surprising that the same effect is attributed to secondhand smoke. This is also not true Again, there are no harmful elements in e-device vapors that are found in traditional cigarettes. Tests were also conducted in unvented vape shops, and it was concluded that there was nothing dangerous in their air to those around them.

3.         Electronic Vaping Devices May Explode

Many of the headlines in the media about exploding e-cigarettes are almost always related to battery misuse or storage. Carelessly carrying dead batteries in your pocket or bag can actually cause an explosion. Just be careful as you would with any other electrical cell or lithium battery. If you follow the manufacturer's battery safety guidelines and use the device correctly, there will be no explosion problems. Stories that a vape exploded in a pocket or that an explosion even led to a fire do happen in reality. However, every vaper knows that before putting an electronic cigarette in a pocket or bag, it must be turned off, and the battery must be charged through a special charger, taking into account the correspondence of the technical parameters of the battery and charging. In addition, fires also occur from smoking. Back in 2011, there were about 90,000 cases of fires due to smoking (USA).

4.         Vaping is More Addictive than Smoking

This is a common vaping myth that does not hold water. Research has shown that the delivery of nicotine to the body by an e-device is actually less than that of a traditional cigarette, even when using the highest nicotine content of 18 mg available in e-liquids. In fact, many vapers use e-devices as a method to gradually reduce their nicotine intake until they stop smoking. And they manage to give up addiction even when other methods have not worked previously. [3]

5.         Vaping Does Not Help People Quit Smoking

This is one of the craziest myths out there, as there is a lot of evidence that using vaping devices has helped many people get rid of their bad habit. For example, public health officials in England themselves stated that "in the UK, approximately 2.9 million adults currently use e-cigarettes, and of these 1.5 million have quit smoking completely." And this is an example from only one country. E-cigarettes are now part of a smoking cessation campaign in many countries. Final Words No one argues that e-cigarettes can adversely affect human health to one degree or another, especially since scientists are conducting new research over and over again. But comparing vaping with a regular cigarette, the fact that there is no tar, carcinogens, and the likelihood of using low-quality tobacco suggests that vaping is still the leading way to quit smoking.
