Let’s get into it now.
The Myths about E Cigarette Second Hand Smoke and Other Fallacies
- Nicotine is bad for you, therefore e- cigarettes are also bad for you – this is a myth of epic proportions, because so many people get this one wrong. They are under the impression that nicotine can pose negative health effects on the human body but this really isn’t true. While nicotine is certainly highly addictive, it does not cause any bodily harm to the human body, and if it did it would be minimal at best. Traditional cigarettes have a lot of additives and unhealthy chemicals, whereas e-cigarette do not. So there’s no need to worry about being in a room with those smoking electronic cigarettes because they do not pose any negative health risks whatsoever.
- No one really knows what is in e- cigarettes, so they have to be dangerous – this is another major fallacy that needs to be corrected immediately, so we are going to do the honors right now. When dealing with a reputable company selling e- cigarettes and E juice, you know precisely what you are getting when purchasing these products. The best of the best companies provide and disclose all of the ingredients inside of the e liquid for the electronic cigarettes, so you definitely know what you are getting and nothing is being held back or hidden from the general public. This is good because e-cigarette smokers want to know what they are inhaling, and they want to feel good about their hobby, so top-quality e-cigarette brands will make sure that their customers know exactly what is inside the e liquids that they sell.
- Some people actually believe that e- cigarettes can explode in their face – the thing about this fallacy is that there really is potential for this to happen, but only if you are being foolish. Make sure you use the correct battery for your particular e-cigarette model and device; otherwise you could create a situation that might lead to an explosion. Do not ever tinker with the E liquid, or fear suffering potential negative consequences. And most importantly, when using a specific e-cigarette model, make sure you pay close attention to the instructions. Do not discard them without reading them. That would be a foolish thing to do at best. The only way an electronic cigarette device will explode in your face is if you work really hard to use it the wrong way, so don’t do it!
- E- cigarettes also contain chemicals as well – again, this all depends on the specific brand that you use. When you are dealing with a reputable company, and one that discloses all of the ingredients inside of their E liquids, you’ll know if you are using a product that contains chemicals. But that’s the thing that you have to pay attention to the most. You have to make sure you are buying from a reputable company that is upfront and discloses all of the information that you need to know about the ingredients. Otherwise you may very well be inhaling chemicals when vaping an electronic cigarette, so understand that you have been warned, and make sure you always stick to the reputable brands at all times.
The bottom line is that you are much more prone to danger when you are around tobacco or marijuana smoke.
