This is probably the most controversial issue surrounding vaping. As more people start to make the switch to vaping, some are saying that the public is being poorly educated on the health risks of the product. Others feel that the vast majority of people who vape are not that much of a danger to their health.
So is vaping safe? Well for starters, everyone needs to realize that as of yet, there is no conclusive evidence to support the claims made by the “anti-vaping” group.
That being said, most people are not exposed to large amounts of second-hand smoking when they vape, or to any other harmful elements in e-liquid. The amount of vapor released by the device also poses no significant risk.
There have been numerous studies conducted over the years regarding how smoking affects your lungs. It has been shown time again that the major cause of early death from tobacco use is lung cancer. In reality, most people do not even know that they have lung cancer until it is too late.
The reality is that the long term smoker is at risk. In fact, the long term smoker is far more at risk than someone who only smokes occasionally. There are many types of tobacco, and all of them carry the same health risks.
Even with all the controversy surrounding vaping, there is no evidence that smoking is causing any of the deadly illnesses we are facing today. There have been many articles released to the press that has greatly impacted public opinion of vaping. The general gist of those articles is that vaping is as dangerous as smoking.
All evidence points to the fact that vaping is as safe as smoking. As far as pure facts go, we can’t prove one cause without finding another.
In addition, if you look at the nicotine levels in e-liquid, you will find that there is little to no danger when using these products. Nicotine does not enter the body at high enough levels for long term damage. At the very least, the nicotine content should not be extremely high.
In order to prove that vaping is dangerous, we would need to find a large enough small amount of these devices leaking chemicals into the atmosphere. Again, this is one of the most expensive, difficult, and unproven techniques. That is why this topic is becoming so heated.
Finally, it would be a good idea to explain how one feels about e-cigarettes, and why people think they should be regulated. Even though they are considered a highly regulated substance, you might feel more comfortable if you were required to get a license to purchase one. Since so many people are confused about what a vaping device is, you might as well make sure that everyone understands what a vaping device is, and how it is used.
We want to keep nicotine levels low because smokers tend to have a harder time quitting if they are inhaling nicotine. The best way to stop smoking is to make sure that you don’t inhale any nicotine at all. The nicotine patches and gum cannot completely stop you from smoking.
In conclusion, there are several factual issues about vaping. However, the level of concern over these devices has far surpassed that of the actual dangers of smoking. In the end, the issue of whether vaping should be banned or not depends entirely on its effects on public health.
