Is Vaping Less Dangerous than Smoking?

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Everyone knows that smoking is injurious to health. And hence, people are searching for other less harmful alternatives. Vaping is one such option that is somewhat new in the market today. People started using vaping about a decade back.  Why do people don’t know about it much? It’s because Vaping didn’t get as popular as smoking. However, today people use both cigarettes as well as vaping to cater to their smoking requirements.

Is it healthy to smoke or experience vaping? And isn’t it essential that smokers today should opt in for healthier alternatives to smoking? Lack of resources made people dodge that question across all these years. But today development in science and technology have allowed researchers to take a call on which option is the best. Also, scientists and researchers have come up with studies that disclose the chemical components that vaping has.

Chemicals contained in vaping

The primary vaping process eliminates the requirement for combusting anything. It also removes the harmful chemicals. The studies conducted on vapor highlights that there’s a vast difference between the carcinogens found both in cigarette smoke and vapor. A cigarette has over 20 chemicals in it; on the other hand, vaping has very few chemicals.

Listed below are the chemicals found in vapor:

  • Nicotine
  • Vegetable glycerin
  • Nitrosamines
  • Propylene glycol
  • Acetaldehyde

Vaping and its safety aspects

In comparison to smoking, vaping today is considered to have reduced levels of safety and health risks. One can’t say that it is entirely safe. There are both pros and cons. The e-cigarettes had a major issue. It started when people saw that the batteries were exploding. That alone is one of the difficult challenges that vaping has to combat.

The case of exploding batteries

2007 witnessed the advent of e-cigarettes. Very soon the issue of exploding batteries started occurring. Even though the source of the problem remained unrecognized, but over-charging became the common reason for the battery explosions. Many research institutes have done a considerable amount of analysis on this problem and have come up with rich data that provides insightful perspectives on the outbursts of e-cigarettes.

Smoking or vaping – What’s the best choice?

It is one debate that has been happening for a while now. Based on a report that the UK Department of Health had sponsored and the Public Health England had published, vaping is 95% safer than the tobacco cigarettes. The study or debate also highlights that the switch from tobacco smoke to vaping itself is a massive sign that an individual is walking towards lessening his/her smoking count. Gradually, over time this person most probably will quit smoking altogether.

However, in certain sections of the US, even vaping gets a critical acceptance akin to smoking. However, the AHA (American Heart Association) did something unique that went beyond the widespread belief in their country. The institution came out with a 20-page statement published in 2014. Based on the AHA reports vaping was considered less dangerous than the ordinary cigarettes. Hence, a person who shows interest in vaping often is encouraged as it is seen as a stepping stone to quitting smoke.
