How to Beat Vaper's Tongue

"What is it, doc?" You ask, your voice trembling.

"It's worse than I thought" he replies, shaking his head sadly. "You have a case of...vaper's tongue!"

Do Electronic Cigarettes Cause Cancer?

The health risks of e-cigarette are a controversial topic; there are no straight answers. Vaping has been around since 1960, but only taken off in the last decade. When it comes to health, the answers are difficult because people just don’t know them! E-cigs haven’t been around long enough to study the effects of long-term vaping.

Is E-Liquid Vegan?

Vegan or not, we doubt anyone will find the idea of inhaling vapourised animal parts or products appealing (Lady Gaga took it far enough when she wore that meat dress). In a world seemingly built from animal products, whether they’re on people’s plates, feet or bodies, it would be fair to assume that vaping is yet another activity that isn’t suitable for vegans. 

But, fortunately, that assumption would be wrong! The majority of e-liquids are vegan – read on to learn more.

Does E-Juice Contain Formaldehyde?

Formaldehyde is a word which can inspire fear in the bravest of souls, on par with "card declined", "mother-in-law" and “tell the group three fun facts about yourself”. Shudder.

Whilst some may run a mile when they hear the F-word, others might not have a clue what it means. So, what the puff is formaldehyde? Is it harmful? And, most importantly, is it in my e-liquid? Keep reading, concerned vapers – like the tip of an e-cig, we’re here to pass you the glowing light of truth! (Well, what we know so far anyway).

Does E-Liquid Contain Formaldehyde?

We all know that vaping isn't completely harmless. In an ideal world no-one would be breathing in anything other than fresh, clean air, but when the alternative is cigarettes, it shouldn't be much of a choice between vaping and smoking. I'm not a doctor (yes, I know you're shocked) but these guys are, and they seem to think that vaping is "much safer" than smoking.

Is E-Liquid Vegetarian?

Many health questions are asked about e-liquids and understandably so. Most of the answers consist of the very helpful phrase we don’t know. Vaping is relatively new so when it comes to any long term effects, there just hasn’t been enough time. It’s not all in the grey though: when the issue of whether e-liquids are vegetarian or not comes up, there is a much simpler answer yes.

Is Vaping Bad for Your Lungs?

As with any major new discovery or invention, vaping has caused quite a stir. Since it was introduced to the market in 2004, there have been multiple debates, discussions and essays surrounding the subject of how bad vaping is for your lungs and general health. All of this generally comes down to the same point: we don’t really know yet.

People once thought cigarettes were good for you, that the Titanic was unsinkable and that the world was flat. Whilst they too lacked long-term knowledge, they also didn’t have the facts which, to an extent, we do. So here they are – the facts which we do know.

Is E-Liquid Poisonous?

If you're thinking about taking up vaping, or have already started, it's only natural that you'd try and be sure that vaping is as safe as possible (of course, inhaling anything but clean air is worse than not doing so). After all, what would be the point in switching from cigarettes to vaping if it turned out that it was just as bad, or even worse for you!?

E-liquid is not some strange and mysterious substance, though. It's a fairly simple one, and contains just a few relatively safe ingredients.

Health Risks of Electronic Cigarettes

How safe electronic cigarettes are has been debated since they were made public in 2004, and something which will no doubt continue to be discussed. Much of the information surrounding vaping seems largely positive, especially when comparing electronic cigarettes to their traditional, smoky counterparts. However, as with many things, that’s not to say that there are no health risks associated with using e-cigarettes. 

Read on to learn about some of the risks you should be aware of if you do decide to enter the world of vape.
