To Vape or Not to Vape — that is the Question!
If you are planning to research the health effects of vaping, you are not alone. Even though vaping has been around for a decade now, with the Chinese firm Hon Lik inventing the first modern e-cig in the mid-2000s, many people are concerned about its safety, especially compared to tobacco smoking.
Before we delve into the details, it is important to first touch upon the basics:
Vaping for Beginners
Vaping refers to the inhaling and exhaling of vapor or aerosol through a vaporizer.
A vaporizer consists of several different parts, which includes, but is not limited to, a mouthpiece, a cartridge (for storing the e-juice), a battery, a heating element and a power button component.
Once the device’s power button is switched on, the battery heats up the coil, converting the e-juice into vapors.
Vaping vs. Tobacco Smoking
Vaping and tobacco smoking can seem confusing, especially if you are a beginner. It is an established fact that traditional smoking is injurious to an individual’s health. Smoking causes one in ten deaths across the world.
Smoking itself is not dangerous, but its tobacco is a major cause for health concerns as it contains numerous toxic chemicals. There are about 70 carcinogens (cancer-causing chemicals) found in tobacco smoke. These include nicotine, hydrogen cyanide, lead, arsenic, formaldehyde, benzene, ammonia, carbon monoxide, nitrosamines, and more.
When smoking a cigarette, you are consuming tobacco that can significantly increase your risk of developing a fatal health condition, such as lung cancer, heart disease, stroke – among several others.
On the contrary, long-term vaping is considered safer than tobacco smoking as it does not contain cancer-causing chemicals.
The most important vaping ingredient is an e-juice or e-liquid, which is made from food-grade substances, propylene glycol, and vegetable glycerin. With vaping, you won’t worry about cigarette burns and bad breath. Therefore, a large number of chain smokers are taking up vaping to quit smoking altogether.
Interested in getting a vape? Buying a vaporizer can be confusing as you will find many options. That being said, handheld, desktop, and glass vaporizers are among the best options.
Handheld vaporizers are portable, lightweight and easy to use. Available in a variety of trendy shapes, glass vapes look like water pipes. Last but not the least, desktop vaporizers are equipped with temperature gauges and offer maximum control to users.
