Health Risks of Electronic Cigarettes and Vaping.
My advice? Do not vape. I mean it. Yeah, I vape, and it's my personal decision, but if you can get out of the habit of smoking without vaping, do it ... I get it, you have an urge to inhale something and you need someone to Help you stay clean.
But if you really want to vape then you must know the potential risks. Talking about risks .. it seems like everything we do in these days have risks. Guess what? Vaping is no exception. If you think vaping is safe as you are wrong, it is not. The only safe thing is fresh, clean air entering your lungs, vaping involves "safe" chemicals like PG and VG and nicotine.
However, our bodies and especially our lungs are not physically prepared to inhale something that is not natural, nor to handle the quantities of these chemicals that enter our airways.
VG is a thick vaporous substance when you let it rest on a surface. Throw the exhaled steam onto a clean smooth surface a couple of times, and then take a finger free of clean oil and swipe along where the vapor exhaled. See the result? Yes, that's what you're getting into the lungs.
If you do the same with a real cigarette you will see that the residue is much more toxic, that is why many people prefer to vape, because at least there are not so many chemicals entering our lungs, and of course, it feels a lot better. That being realistic and having our feet on the ground, we are not 100% sure with the vaping.
There is a new study from 2015 that finds that vaping without nicotine can damage the lungs. I am not a scientist and I am not an alarmist. This report is not a direct study on life and vaping in humans, but it does show an effect.
I tend to take these "studies" with a pinch of salt, as they are often made with an agenda or backed by certain unreliable sources. However, what I am saying is that there is no way that vaping is "safe" at one hundred percent.
There are reports that come out every week with something new and "bad" for the vaping in general. I'm not just trying to scare anyone, I just want you to be informed and aware, you should never be under the impression that vaping is an alternative Safe to smoke, it is not. The only healthy thing for the lungs and health is fresh, clean air. Anything else is going to be at least something unhealthy.
It can be safer compared to cigarettes, but it is also safer to fly in an airplane than to ride in a car and both can lead to an unpleasant death. The point is, we do not know for sure, there are not enough full studies and that is why sellers are not allowed to claim it is a safe alternative and I agree 100%, it is not.
If you have made the decision to vape, know the facts as much as you can, you are letting chemicals that are not normally found in the lungs enter them, for that very reason you should understand that it is not "safe". When you buy Something from any vendor should do so with this in mind.
Vaping is a risk, a risk that you have to go in with your eyes open. Smoking kills for sure, we know, we do not even know what vaping does. Please keep this in mind.If you are not sure, do not vape.
