A 2012 research paper entitled Levels of selected carcinogens and toxicants in vapor from electronic cigarettes: “We found that the e-cigarette vapors contained some toxic substances. The levels of the toxicants were 9–450 times lower than in cigarette smoke and were, in many cases, comparable with trace amounts found in the reference product . . . our findings are consistent with the idea that substituting tobacco cigarettes with e-cigarettes may substantially reduce exposure to selected tobacco-specific toxicants. E-cigarettes as a harm reduction strategy among smokers unwilling to quit, warrants further study.”

If your e cig has a button, do not let this scare or intimidate you. I will admit, the idea of pushing a button kind of freaked me out (it doesn’t take much to freak me out I guess), but I adapted – so can you.
In the wake of the study, many e-liquid companies scrambled to test their products and ease customers’ minds. But at least one company has now come under fire for not revealing the high levels of AP in some of its liquids, even though it knew about these levels for months.
Vaping — or the act of using high-tech, electronic cigarette systems that simulate smoking — is having an identity crisis. A branding issue. An optics problem.
I never had Red Velvet Cake until I was maybe 24 or 25, and it is delicious. Easily one of my top 3 cakes (right behind my wife’s Carrot Cake and my dad’s Chocolate Overload Cake). Fluffy Cake is Red Velvet Cake. Complete with cream cheese frosting. It is the weirdest thing, there is actually mouth hit from this one. I feel like I am eating Red Velvet Cake. It’s like the feeling you experience just after you swallow a bite of the cake, where there is like a thin film of the frosting and bits of cake still in your mouth. Amazing.
You may be tempted to think I’m full of crap, but our sales figures don’t lie: In our business, e-liquid in very low to zero nicotine strength (6 mg per ml and below) outsells medium-to-high strengths (12 mg and above) by better than a two-to-one margin. Also, considering that literally every single e-liquid manufacturer offers zero-nicotine liquid—and at least one makes only that—it’s safe to say that there would be no supply if the demand did not exist. I personally had quit smoking for two years before I started vaping, and I use zero-nicotine liquid daily.
All e cigs are different and some have variable settings. As a rule of thumb, it’s best to start low and adjust to higher temps as you go in order to hone in on the perfect flavor to vapor ratio. Before you begin, make sure your settings are on the lowest setting (for your first time) to ensure a tasty first experience instead of a gross one.
“We get it, you vape.” The vaper, stereotypically male, has become an object of ridicule, derided in the same category as the self-proclaimed “nice guy” who’s really anything but. Nothing illustrates this more colorfully than the memes that jab at vape aficionados for ostentatiously showing off their smoke products. Vapers, as the stereotype goes, can’t just vape; they need you to know about it.
