E-cig is not something strange and unknown anymore. Nobody seems to be surprised with person vaping just on a bus stop. But there are still a lot of myths about the issue: it is “just Chinese chemicals” or “costly affair”. Those who puzzled out how e-cig works are sure – vaping may become safe and interesting hobby.
Is it harmful?
No, it doesn’t, - say British scientists. The real scientists.
Official British healthcare authorities stated that vaping is 95% healthier activity compared to Tabaco products, while vaper inhales just a vapor and not the smoke with products of combustion, including toxins and heavy metals.
However, medical community is concerned by flavors as they are not a typical product for human lungs. But not a single researcher has proved the correctness of this statement.
In general, medical experts and researches are sure that vaping is much less harmful for both vapers and those around them. It means one can vape in public places while vapor do not leave unpleasant odor on clothes and hair. Meanwhile, vapers receive their fun.
Sometimes shifting from cigarettes to e-cigs may cause feeling unwell within first days. But the reason for this is not vapor but a so-called ‘Withdrawal Effect’, when organism tries to ‘forget’ products of combustion it has taken to.
In some rare cases vaper may have allergy to eLiquids components. In such a case, vaper should consult a doctor and vape-shop sales manager in order to find suitable liquid.
