Vaping Myths Debunked

Vaping Myths Debunked

It would be pretty cliché to say “new year, new me” every time a new year started, right? Well, some people are trying to become a new person for the new year, whether they’re going to the gym to lose weight, trying to be a nicer person, increasing their income, the list goes on and on and we might be here forever if we tried to look at all the “new year, new me” promises everyone has made. 

One of those New Year’s resolutions may include switching to vaping. That being said, if you’re here because you want to switch to vaping, we’ll answer common questions that people may ask about vaping. (If you already vape, here’s how you can take action against proposed regulations such as flavor bans.)

Does vaping cause lung injuries?

The short answer is probably not. All evidence from investigating regulatory agencies points to THC products and other black market products. If you’re using vetted vape products and hardware that we have here at, you can buy with confidence knowing that these products have not been linked to any lung injuries by the relevant agencies. While the media has targeted the vaping industry due to respiratory illness popping up around the country, it was later found out that the vaping products, used by those that contracted the respiratory illness, were illegal THC cartridges usually containing vitamin E acetate. 

Concerning these two ingredients, and other reputable sellers do NOT sell products containing THC or vitamin E acetate. We here at strongly advise that you do not purchase any vape products outside of reputable sellers and vendors such as

What exactly is popcorn lung?

Bronchiolitis obliterans, which is commonly known as “popcorn lung”, is a condition that damages your lungs’ smallest airways. It can make you feel short of breath and induce a cough. Various health authorities disagree with one another: some said that popcorn lung and vaping are associated, while others have said that there is no correlation. Overall, there is no concrete and definitive evidence that vaping is the direct cause of popcorn lung.

Will my vape battery explode in my face?

The chances of your vape battery exploding in your face are very slim to none if you’re buying vetted products from and properly use the products. In the early days of vaping, there was more of a chance that this would happen. With improvements in technology, this risk has been drastically reduced. Currently, these incidents arise due to user error, improper vape setups, or using vape devices while they are charging.

Is secondhand vape as dangerous as secondhand smoke?

Given the number of ingredients in eJuices (typically four) compared to cigarettes (7000+), secondhand vape is NOT as dangerous as secondhand smoke. In fact, take a look at this comparison between e-cigarettes and traditional cigarettes. For those new to vaping, the four ingredients in eJuices are typically vegetable glycerin (VG), propylene glycol (PG, which is actually safe for consumption according to the FDA), nicotine (not a known carcinogen), and various flavorings. 

Cigarettes, on the other hand, contain many hazardous materials such as arsenic, lead, cyanide, carbon monoxide, formaldehyde, and even certain insecticides. These ingredients are not only found in traditional cigarettes but even sometimes in everyday household items that you wouldn’t think about inhaling or ingesting!

Will banning e-cigarettes make them go away forever?

Much like the alcohol Prohibition that existed in the 1920s, banning e-cigarettes will not make them go away forever. In fact, it was rumored that a bar in New York City stocked up to 14 years’ worth of alcohol before Prohibition began. Coincidentally, Prohibition lasted between 1920 and 1933, so this bar didn’t have to go through all of its rumored stock. Therefore, banning e-cigarettes (or anything in particular) won’t make them go away forever.

The drive to ban e-cigarettes is as misinformed as some of the other things Americans have tried to ban over the years. Aside from alcohol, there have been similar endeavors to ban violent video games, firearms, explicit music, and even plastic straws (even niche items such as lawn darts were banned in 1988).  Most of these items are still here today if you know where to look. 

There may be differences when it comes to e-cigarettes, but forcing something underground can often cause a bigger and even more illicit black market just like Prohibition lead to moonshiners and the rise of the mob. Given that there are many more people in America today and many adults are switching to vaping as a method of harm reduction, it is very likely a ban would result in otherwise law-abiding Americans looking to the black market for the products they need.

Vaping saved my life…my father died at age 65 from COPD/Emphysema from smoking cigarettes I was desperate to quit I tried everything without success. Until a friend took me to a local vape shop…I haven’t had a cig in 3 years went from 21mg nicotine now down to 6mg…I can run up 2 flights of stairs no shortness of breath I have not gained weight like I did with the other cessation aids. I’ve honestly never felt better!

Drew Taylor - February 6, 2020

Thank you for your article. I have been vaping for 4 plus years and haven’t had a cigarette since I started vaping. I had been smoking cigarettes for 32 years when I switched to vapes. I could barely breath. Now, my lung function is nearly that of a life long non-smoker. I was diagnosed as COPD. Now, the doctor can hardly tell I’m an ex-cigarette smoker when he listens to my breathing. Vaping has definitely extended, if not, saved my life. I’ll never stop vaping. Thx.
