Given this scenario, there are a lot of misconceptions and myths revolving around this trending topic. Here are a few of these myths decoded so that you can distinguish between fact and fiction in a better way.

Myth: Coming in contact with vapor is harmful It is a known fact that first as well as second hand cigarette smoking is harmful. It can be as injurious to health for the smoker as much as it is for the people in the vicinity. However, the liquid vaped through a vaporizer is typically formulated with nicotine, flavorings and propylene glycol and/or glycerin. Besides the exhaled aerosol, it does not give outside stream vapor into the atmosphere. This means that it does not cause damage to other individuals who are around you. Myth: E-cigarettes are not monitored and knowing what really exists inside them is hard It is believed that e-cigarettes cannot be trusted because you never really know what is inside of it. This is a far cry from the truth. In reality, there are strict rules and regulations that govern e-cigarettes and vaping. Besides this, these products are put under the scanner and need to pass through stringent standards of safety as well as quality along with labeling and packaging requirements. This ensures customers are well informed and can accordingly make knowledgeable choices. Myth: E-cigarettes and vaping is the primary cause of ‘popcorn lung’ Popcorn lung, formerly known as bronchitis obliterans, is a condition that damages your lung’s smallest airways. This leads to cough and shortness of breath. This myth came into being owing to the flavorings used in e-liquids that offer a buttery flavor. It is said that the flavorings contain chemical diacetyl. In reality, this ingredient is banned from e-cigarettes and e-liquids. Although in the past, the presence of this ingredient was found, it was a great degree lower than the quantity found in cigarette smoke. Myth: E-cigarettes are bad since they come with nicotine


A major reason why vaporizer or e-cigarette is looked down upon is because of the presence of nicotine. It is believed that it causes cancer. Evidence, however, proves otherwise. Nicotine actually carries a minimal risk when it comes to health related concerns. Yes, nicotine is one of the major reasons why people get addicted to smoking in the first place, it is the thousands of additional chemicals present in it that cause all the more harm. Vaping does not cause carbon monoxide and tar to enter your body and although it does a few chemicals responsible for tobacco smoke, it does not contain a high level of them as commonly found in conventional cigarettes.
