Vaping Myths Debunked!

We all have that know-it-all relative or nosy coworker who thinks that they are the expert when it comes to the so-called “dangers” of vaping. We can educate, we can argue, but sometimes, it’s a battle we just can’t win.

Until there’s proof. Save your breath and instead share with them this brilliant article published by Aspen Valley Vapes.

I suggest you read the entire thing, but here are some of my favorites:

  1. “E-Liquids Contain Anti-Freeze”

    “One of the ingredients in e-liquid, propylene glycol, is used in anti-freeze. I’m not exactly sure how that translates to e-liquids containing anti-freeze, but the claim was made and ruffled the feathers of the vaping industry…The funny part about PG being used in anti-freeze is that it is intended to make the anti-freeze less harmful if it is swallowed.”

  2. “Vaping Causes You To Inhale Formaldehyde”

    This one caused quite the stir when the “study” making this claim was published in the New England Journal of Medicine…Unfortunately the researchers botched the study by having machines simulate the act of vaping at temperatures that were so high they caused dry-hit conditions…The machines did not simulate the real act of vaping in their study.”

 

3.  “E-Cigarettes Will Give You Popcorn Lung”

Dr. Michael Siegel concluded that smokers are exposed to diacetyl levels that are 750 times higher than the diacetyl levels of vaping. An average vaper is exposed to 9 micrograms of diacetyl per day while the average smoker is exposed to 6,718 micrograms.

Siegel also went farther in-depth when he looked at the Harvard study that caused the diacetyl concerns in the first place. He found that the e-liquid with the highest levels of diacetyl exposed vapers to just 239 micrograms whereas a heavy smoker is exposed to 20,340 micrograms.

 

There’s so much more valuable information so make sure to read the article in its entirety!
