Do E-Cigarettes Cause Cancer?

Monday, 25 April 2016  |  Admin

“You’re what?! Planning on using your mobile? Don’t you know they cause cancer?!” – Worried mothers, circa 1999.

Welcome to 2016, when E-cigarettes are the new favourite cancer-causing contraption for the scaremongering media, but just how true are these claims? I mean, it’s 17 phone-filled years later and I’m still alive, mum!

Time Will Tell

In short, we don’t actually know if your e-cig is going to be the end of you, you’re not inhaling the thousands of toxins of a cigarette for a start, and in terms of ingredients, vaping is probably less harmful than inner city air, and no one’s breathed themselves to death lately.

On the plus side, Vaping juices and liquids have only 5 ingredients:

  • Propylene Glycol
  • Vegetable Glycerine
  • Nicotine
  • Flavourings
  • Distilled water

Only one of which might be considered harmful, and if you opt for 0mg nicotine blends then you’re left with a bottle of perfectly safe ingredients ready to be vaped away!

On the other hand, we don’t have any evidence to irrevocably say your e-juices are a totally harmless bunch, as kind to your taste buds as they are.

Science Vs. Belief

In your pre-vaper research days, the papers  probably overwhelmed you with hundreds of claims of infallible research, and you probably came to the same decision as everyone else – they surely can’t be any worse than the tobacco you were already smoking, and anyway, you’re an adult, you can make you own decisions! So far as all those pages of research go, the fact remains that we’ve only had vaping for a mere 10 years. A decade may seem like a long time but, hey, it takes longer than that for stuff to kill you! All the studies in the world aren’t able to speed up time to find out if your vaping is fatal.

Now, we may be pro-vaping, but we’re not about pulling the clouds over your eyes, so even when those (slightly more favourable) claims say vaping isn’t harmful at all, you should bear in mind that they also haven’t passed the test of time. Whether you’re for or against vaping, everyone is stuck at the same crossroads when it comes to actually knowing who is right.

Vape Happy

Science aside, we have millions of happy vapours who truly believe that vaping is only a good thing, claiming that their vaporiser helped them improve their fitness, leave tobacco behind, breathe easier, better their love life, the list goes on. We’re very happy for all you loved-up vapers, and we also believe that vaping can improve your health and your lifestyle, but  if you’re asking for proof beyond that of customer testimonials we’re just as stoked as the science folk when it comes to having cold, hard facts. Sorry.

So, is your loyal vape pen ultimately going to kill you? We hope not, the most dangerous thing about them that has been proven is that cheap models have a tendency to burst into flames, but then the same goes for your laptop, and plenty mums were worried about them back in the day too, now look at you, all grown up and using one all by yourself!

Grab yourself a tasty blend at our online store today and decide for yourself if vaping is for you!
