The debate between vaping and smoking has been a popular one in recent years. People want to know if vaping is actually better for you than smoking is. One of the only problems is that vaping hasn’t been as closely studied as smoking has since it is relatively new. But from what we do know about vaping so far we can assume that it is healthier for you than smoking a cigarette.
We all know that vaporizers aren’t completely chemical free but when compared to the average cigarette they have far less chemicals. Less chemicals means less stress on your body. The reason e-cigarettes have less chemicals than normal cigarettes is because they don’t burn like cigarettes do. Studies show that because of this vaping is 95% safer than your run of the mill cigarette.
Nicotine is the main argument against the use of e-cigarettes. Nicotine being a highly addictive substance is greatly frowned upon. Smoking cigarettes since they have a higher nicotine content are extremely addictive. The good thing about vaporizers is that they don’t have as much nicotine and aren’t as addictive. Some e-liquids or juice of vaporizers have the option of having nicotine in them. Otherwise you can get vape juice without any nicotine and you would just be inhaling flavored vapor. Even when the vaporizer does have nicotine in the e-liquid the amount in there doesn’t compare to the amount of nicotine in cigarettes. In fact some doctors recommend vaporizers instead of nicotine patches when somebody is trying to stop smoking.
Everyone is aware of the side effects cigarettes have on a smoker. They reek of smoke, have yellow teeth, bad breath, and scratch “smoker voices”. A benefit of vaping is that it has none of these side effects. Depending on the flavor of your juice you might smell like mangos or creme brulee but you won’t smell of smoke. Vaping also doesn’t pose the same second hand smoke risk as cigarettes.
This is where the argument on whether vaping is better for you than smoking gets a little slippery. Smoking cigarettes and the health risks it poses has been studied for centuries but vaping hasn’t had that extensive long term research yet. What scientist have figured out so far is that vaporizers don’t put the same stress on your cells as cigarettes do. So far scientist also think that vaping doesn’t cause the same lung disease or heart problems.It’s the high amount of nicotine in the cigarettes that cause strain on heart arteries and causes fluid build up in the lungs. Since vaporizers only release vapor it does not have the same effect on your body.
It’s important to remember that more studies are required to know the true effects vaping has on your body, but from what we do know so far it’s safe to assume that vaporizers are better for you. Vaporizers pose less health risk because of their lower count of nicotine and the fact they don’t burn. Smoking kills over six million people a year and in comparison to the little harm vaping does it’s easy to see how vaping is the better option for you.
Vaping is slowly replacing smoking since it is better for you, but since vaporizers aren’t as readily available as cigarettes it will continue to be a slow process. However many highly rated vaping devices are available today. The poor side effects of cigarettes are making them less appealing than vaporizers. Why would you want keep smoking cigarettes that cause yellow teeth and bad breath when you could have a flavorful vape that taste goods and doesn’t stain teeth?
