How Safe is Vaping?

Tuesday, 19 April 2016  |  Admin

If you’re new to vaping, your first step may be to start exploring vape shops – like the online store here at Vape Mountain – to get a feel for what’s on offer. But, before you do so, it’s important that you read up on how safe vaping is, so you can decide for yourself whether it definitely is the best choice for you.

A quick Google search will present you with a whole host of information that you could read all day, from essays by cloud-chasing enthusiasts who’ll swear vaping is the best thing since Pop Tarts, to rants from vape opponents claiming the e-cigarette might just be responsible for the end of life as we know it.

At Vape Mountain, we know you probably just want the facts, plain and simple. So here they are – make with them what you will.

Fact No.1: Vaping is Tar and Tobacco Free

Burning tobacco produces toxic tar as a by-product. Tobacco smoke damages your lungs, impairs your breathing and is the primary cause of premature death in the UK. Vaping uses no tobacco and tar is not present in vapour.

Fact No.2: Vaping is Smoke-Free

Cigarette smoke contains over 4,000 chemicals, including 43 carcinogens which can cause cancer. Very few carcinogenic chemicals have been found in e-cigarettes – vaping simulates the feeling of smoking, but the clouds produced are harmless vapour rather than actual smoke. There are therefore no nasty by-products of combustion present and you don’t have to worry about second-hand smoke dangers.

Fact No.3: Vaping Can be Done With or Without Nicotine

Nicotine is highly addictive but not actually proven to be harmful on its own. There are different nicotine concentrations available for vapers, including e-liquids that contain no nicotine whatsoever. Some users choose to start with a higher dose and then progressively reduce their strength in order to wean themselves off nicotine altogether.

Fact No.4: E-Liquids Consist of Nicotine, Vegetable Glycerine (VG), Propylene Glycerine (PG) and Flavouring

All of these ingredients are considered harmless. VG and PG are non-toxic and are actually used as food additives, found within many products on your supermarket shelves. The flavourings used in e-liquids can be either natural or artificial. 

Fact No.5: The Long-Term Effect of Vaping is Still Unknown

As modern vaping has only taken off in the last decade or so, long-term research into its effects are still underway. Having said that, the short term statistics on vaping are largely positive, with no cases confirmed of vaping-induced diseases or deaths, in comparison with the 100,000 cigarette-related deaths reported every year.

So, that’s the basics! If you feel ready to give vaping a go, whether you’re working to make the switch from cigarettes or are just curious to try it, visit our online store today. From starter kits, to personal vapourisers, to a range of e-liquid flavours, we have everything you need to get going!
