The average person has probably heard two things about the vapor produced by electronic cigarettes: either it’s perfectly harmless, or it’s worse than cigarettes, forest fires, and nuclear explosions combined. You’ve probably heard more than once that “not enough studies have been done.”
Vape Shops In Dungannon, VA Again, this might seem like common sense, but there’s nothing worse than taking a dry hit (trust me). Not only does it taste like burning butt hairs (I don’t actually know what burning butt hairs taste like, but I have imagined tasting them, and it’s gross), but it might actually ruin your cartomizer, coil, or wick. So figure out how to fill it up, and make sure everything is properly saturated.
The risks of inhaling DA were first discovered in the summer of 2000, when a handful of workers in a microwave popcorn plant in Missouri started getting diagnosed with a rare, severe, irreversible lung disease called bronchiolitis obliterans. Even non-smokers who worked at the plant were getting sick, and investigators soon discovered it was linked to inhaling diacetyl—which gave the popcorn that “real butter” taste—on a daily basis. Soon after, NIOSH, the research branch of the US Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), recommended guidelines for factories where DA and AP is used, to prevent workers from getting sick. But OSHA has yet to translate those recommendations into meaningful regulation.
Vape culture is having the same growing pains as gaming culture. In both cases, there’s a hardcore community of early adopters who have become intrinsically associated with the technology: For gaming, it’s the basement-dwelling white male nerds; for vaping, it’s the metal-heads with gauged ears and box mods. The hardcore crowd tends to scare away the potential new fans.
I decided that I would keep a journal for the first 30 days, as there was so much to learn about modern electronic cigarettes (which is a complete misnomer for anything but the ‘cigalikes’ that you find in gas stations). About a week in I decided to turn this into a blog, and share my experience with new users.
You may not have realized this had been studied so extensively, and I could link to many more. I’d like to draw attention to that last study, however—the one focusing specifically on “secondhand” vapor. The first inroads being made into legislating our industry are arguing that vaping should be restricted to the same areas as smoking as the vapor isn’t safe. Across the board in our industry, though, the feeling is that . . .
With cigarettes, if you lose your cherry you can always light it up again, but once your battery loses its charge it’ll take a lot longer for it to come back to life. Because of this, it’s always recommended to carry around a fully charged spare battery (or two). Just remember the saying: “two is one, and one is none.”
But the difference is that the ultimate crusade of many vaping evangelists is personal health. If vaping is on the right side of history, it’s about time the electronic cigarette business looks beyond the conventions both literal and figurative, beyond VAPE Magazine and the brick and mortar stores. And that starts with making vaping more accessible.
