Vaping Myths vs. Facts Explained
There are numerous myths about vaping and these common beliefs, often consisting of nothing more than misinformation, dissuade consumers from purchasing electronic-cigarettes and the associated vape gear. Electronic-cigarettes, or e-cigarettes, use a battery-powered heating element to vaporise a liquid. Vaping, although not without its risks, is much safer than smoking and transitioning from cigarettes to e-cigarettes could save the lives of countless smokers. Here at Vape Cloud UK, we sell a range of vape gear, such as e-liquid and coils as well as mods and hardware, and provide a nationwide delivery service for our wide range of vaping products.
"E-cigarettes are not regulated."
A persistent myth that surrounds vaping is that the e-liquid, also known as vape juice or e-juice, is not regulated by any government body and that consumers do not know what chemicals are contained within it. The reality, however, is that the substances used in vaping are regulated by the UK Medicines and Healthcare Regulatory Agency (MHRA) which requires manufactures to conform to a strict set of standards regarding the quality and safety of the products on offer.
"Switching from smoking to vaping is trading one bad habit for another."
Some opponents of vaping claim that e-liquid, due to the fact that it contains nicotine and a handful of other substances, is as dangerous as tobacco and that inhaling the vapour is as harmful to the health as ingesting cigarette smoke. E-cigarette vapour, containing neither tar nor carbon monoxide, is believed to be around 95% safer than tobacco smoke which contains thousands of harmful substances.
"Vaping is as dangerous as smoking."
Laws that prohibit smoking in public spaces, created to tackle the harmful effects of breathing second-hand smoke, do not apply to vaping. Tobacco smoke contains over 7,000 toxic chemicals while e-cigarette aerosol, created when e-liquid is superheated by an e-cigarette coil, consists mostly of water vapour and poses no discernible risk to bystanders. The typical ingredients of e-juice are glycerine, nicotine, propylene glycol and water which makes it a less dangerous substance than tobacco.
"E-cigarettes do not help smokers to quit tobacco."
Evidence suggests that vaping has helped 20,000 smokers to quit cigarettes and that electronic nicotine delivery systems, like the nicotine gum and patches that came before them, could enable ex-smokers to overcome their nicotine addictions. Vape Cloud UK are one of the country’s leading online suppliers of vape gear including a wide range of E-liquid products, Mods and Coils.
