Common Myths about Smokeless Cigarettes

Every product has its own set of myths, rumors or speculations. If you smoke smokeless cigarettes, also known as e-cigs, you might have come across a few myths and innuendos about them. The best way to distinguish fact from fiction is to ask questions and investigate. Here is a look at some of the biggest myths to hit the electronic cigarette space.

Myth 1. E-cigarettes are akin to nicotine and tobacco smoke. Hence, they are as harmful.

Fact: Studies have shown that though nicotine is in fact addicting, its bearing or impact on the body is minimal. Based upon the type of cartridge you use, e-cigs contain varying levels of nicotine. Nicotine is not the issue. The real culprit behind traditional cigarettes is the various additives, chemicals and tar that they comprise. To facilitate transparency, most e-cig brands disclose the precise ingredients they use on their product labels.

Myth 2. E-cigarettes pose a health hazard because no one knows for sure what they contain.

Fact: Any reputable e-cig distributor will disclose what is in its brand of e-cigs. Upon doing your research on each ingredient used, you will learn precisely what you are inhaling. E-cigs are an alternative smoking product for many people who choose not to inhale the mysterious chemicals associated with customary cigarettes. Choose your e-cig company prudently. You should be doubtful of any company that shuns questions or withholds information. Buy from a trusted brand.

Myth 3. E-cigarettes are pricier than real cigarettes.

Fact: E-cig prices vary based on brand. In large, many brands are priced competitively. E-cigs are also considerably more efficient, and they last longer, so even if you opt for a premium brand, it pays off long term. E-cig refills also cost sizably less than a regular pack of cigarettes. Not surprisingly, many e-cig smokers deem e-cigs a cost-effective option.

Myth 4. E-cigarettes are more addictive than regular cigarettes.

Fact: If nicotine levels in both products were equal, you would not have a greater craving for one. Hence, you do not have a higher chance of becoming addicted to e-cigs than you are to regular cigarettes. E-cigs are handier, so you may have an inclination to reach for it more often. Still, e-cigs contain no substance that would hook you more.

Myth 5. E-cigarettes cause cancer and are deleterious to your health

Fact: Numerous emerging studies dispel this notion. Major carcinogenic elements that attribute to many health problems are not present in e-cigs. E-cigs are also a non-tobacco product and contain no tar. They also do not emit ash and smothering smoke. One categorical conclusion is that traditional cigarettes can put you at greater risk of a bevy of health conditions, including lung cancer, throat cancer, heart attack and stroke.

Myth 6. E-cigarettes taste bad.

Fact: E-cigarettes are available in a host of fun and agreeable flavors. The sheer variety available enables users to choose flavors that they find palatable. For individuals who find the smell of traditional cigarettes offensive, they can opt for fun flavors like chocolate, cherry and mango.

Myth 7. E-cigarette explosions are common.

Fact: Assuming the user adheres to the charging instructions, a quality e-cig will not combust or catch fire. For example, unless you use batteries not specified for your model or tamper with e-liquid, your e-cig is not going to explode indiscriminately. You should use your device according to the manufacturer’s specifications. In general, all lithium battery type devices, such as cell phones, have the potential to explode. Notably, many quality e-cigs are designed in a way to decrease risk of fire even when misused.

Unmistakably, the best way to dispel a myth is to conduct research. With e-cigs, many people have found a way to enjoy smoking and avert the drawbacks associated with traditional cigarettes.
