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.”
Vape Shops In Leesburg, VA With a cigarette, you just need some hands, your mouth, and a flame. E cigs also require some hands and a mouth, but no flame is required – it’s like magic! Okay, it’s not like magic, it’s just electricity (although, electricity does remind me a lot of magic). So instead of a fire, you need to figure out how to operate your e cig – here’s how.
“The whole issue didn’t exist before we published our study,” said Konstantinos Farsalinos, a researcher at the Onassis Cardiac Surgery Center in Greece, and lead author of the study. “There were discussions in e-cigarette consumer forums—vapers forums—on the internet, but there was no discussion in the scientific community. So we learned a lot from vapers.”
Moreover, e-cigarettes could help eliminate health problems in poorer areas, where smoking tobacco is more prevalent. “E-cigarettes could be a game changer in public health in particular by reducing the enormous health inequalities caused by smoking,” said Ann McNeill, one of the study’s authors and a professor at King’s College London.
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.
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 . . .
You’re not going to have to inhale as hard as you do with a traditional cigarette, so keep that in mind for your first puff. There’s also some debate regarding the superiority of mouth-hits over lung-hits (or vice-versa). Personally, I like lung-hits because I feel like I get a better nicotine buzz, but there are people who prefer mouth hits because there’s better flavor and more vapor. Either way, do what feels right to you, and don’t let anyone tell you what to do (whateva – I do what I want)!
While a lot of people liked the stock e cigs on the market, there was a small subset of people who wanted more out of their vaping experience.
