The Complete Guide to E-Cigs and Why They’re Just as Bad as Smoking


Many people are given the wrong information about e-cigs. They are told that they are less harmful than smoking, but this is not always true. 

The e-cig market has exploded in recent years, but research on the long-term effects of vaping is still limited. Vaping is a hot topic, and not just because it’s hip. In fact, vaping is a serious issue for many people because it has been linked to multiple health risks. The long-term effects of vaping have not been studied extensively yet, but the latest research shows that vaping may be as bad as smoking cigarettes.

The Dangers of E-Cigs and Why You Shouldn’t Trust Them to Quit Smoking

E-cigarettes, or vaping devices, have been found to contain toxic chemicals as well as metals. They also release as many as 10 times more cancer-causing substances than a regular cigarette. In certain cases, the smoke from e-cigarettes can contain more formaldehyde and acetaldehyde than a regular cigarette.

These products were not created to help people quit smoking, but instead, smokers are desperate to try anything and are more willing to take risks, as is shown by their behavior as cigarette smokers.


The number of people who use e-cigarettes has increased by 1 million each year for the last 3 years and one in five high school students have tried them or used them regularly.

In an article published by The New England Journal of Medicine, smokers who used e-cigarettes were less likely to quit smoking than those who did not use them at all.


How the Dangers of E-Cigs are Threatening Your Health and Putting Lives at Risk


The problem with e-cigarettes is that there are no regulations that ensure the safety of the products, which means you cannot know what chemicals are in these products. The side effects can include lung complications, heart problems, and even cancer. This is why it’s so crucial to take a look at how the dangers of e-cigarettes are threatening your health and putting lives at risk.

Electronic cigarettes or E-cigarettes have been around for at least ten years now, yet there is still a lack of regulation over what chemicals you’re inhaling when you use them. Your risks can range from lung complications to heart problems to even cancer!


Why You Should Be Very Concerned About the Risks Posed by Electronic Cigarettes


Electronic cigarettes are a new and often confusing topic. Most of the risks posed by these cigarettes are new to modern society.

The first risk is that they can cause health problems such as cancer, lung disease such as respiratory bronchiolitis and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and heart disease.

A second risk is that they can increase your chance of getting cancer because they contain nicotine which is known to cause lung cancer in smokers.

Lastly, there is a risk for pregnant women and children due to the increased chance of them developing birth defects like cleft palate or cleft lip when exposed to second-hand vapors from e-cigarettes.

E-Cigs Linked to Lung Disease and Death Worldwide as Study Urges Governments to Ban Vaping Devices

A study from the University of Birmingham in the UK found that electronic cigarettes lead to more cases of lung disease and death worldwide.

This study is a new warning sign for advocates of vaping devices who have been saying they are a better alternative to traditional tobacco cigarettes.


3 Ways Electronic Cigarettes Can Put Your Health in Danger


Addictive, Toxic, and Impacts Other People

Electronic cigarettes (e-cigarettes) are not as safe as they seem. They contain toxic chemicals such as formaldehyde, acetaldehyde, acrolein, propylene glycol, and benzene. These chemicals that are released into the air when the e-cigarettes activate can lead to chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), heart disease, and cancer. Beyond the risks of the toxins themselves, these vapors also pose a risk to those who inhale them because they can be enhanced with substances like nicotine or THC – which is found in marijuana – and this poses a risk for addiction.


More Negative Effects of Vaping


Vaping exposes users to the same cancer-causing substances found in tobacco smoke. And while some studies say vaping can help smokers quit, other studies show that it can be addictive for teens and young adults who never smoked before. There are also concerns about the long-term effects of vaping on lungs and throat tissues.
