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 Crozet, VA Some e-cigarettes look like traditional cigarettes, but others do not. There are disposable cigalikes which are known as first generation “cigalikes” and there are reusable versions. Since their introduction to the market in 2004, global usage has risen.
“Diacetyl is a respiratory toxin, so when you breath it in, it irritates the lungs,” said Jessica Barrington-Trimis, a researcher at the University of Southern California and the Tobacco Center of Regulatory Science. “That’s not a problem if you’re eating it because it doesn’t get into the lungs at all.”
The study also crucially points out that there is no evidence supporting the view that e-cigarettes are a “gateway” to smoking tobacco, for adults and minors. Only 2% of young people in Britain vape regularly.
Barrington-Trimis is currently conducting a study that compares the respiratory health of vapers who smoke unflavored e-cigarettes to those who prefer flavored varieties, and said more research is needed to understand the potential risks of these chemicals. But in the meantime, she doesn’t see why manufacturers don’t just err on the side of caution and avoid DA and AP altogether.
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.”
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.
