Dangers Of Vaping Centered On Bad Products

are ecigs bad for you

The news media loves to talk about the dangers of vaping, even the fictional dangers that don’t scientifically exist. This isn’t a surprise, or at least it shouldn’t be. We all know that the media has a much better time with their ratings if they are scaring people. Just imagine you see a teaser for the news. It has ominous music and the narrator says “ecigs are very trendy, but the dangers of vaping are real and we’ll tell you about them tonight on the 10 o’clock news.” Think people are going to tune in to find out?

Of course they are. That’s just how the media game works and it is something you pick up on quite quickly if you just pay a little attention. That’s how the “if it bleeds, it leads” phrase became so well known. When that average American does turn on his or her nightly news broadcast feature about electronic cigarettes, they will undoubtedly be flooded with a bunch of scary threats. Lots of rumor and assumptions will come up and very soon they will end up thinking that the dangers of vaping are terrible. At the least, they’ll think that the benefits are far outweighed by those dangers.

There will obviously be comparisons made the analogue cigarettes, but they’ll stress the similarities. They’ll tell you how you are still ingesting nicotine and they’ll paint it in a way that leads you to believe nicotine is bad for you. In fact, that isn’t really the truth at all. They may tell you that there are dangers of second hand vaping, just like second hand smoke. Once again, that isn’t the truth either and nobody has scientifically proven that it is. All of these claims about the dangers of vaping are made by connecting dots that don’t really connect. But there is one danger that we know exists, and that is the one you should really be focusing on.


Real Dangers Of Vaping Products Exploding

Dangers Of Vaping Bad Products

Batteries are at the heart of the dangers of vaping, but it isn’t as if you should stop vaping (or not start at all). While the dangers of second hand vaping is pretty much a myth, there is real solid proof of this phenomenon of ecig batteries exploding.

We won’t paint a pretty picture here, because the reality is that it is beginning to get out of hand. Just in last week we have seen numerous news reports of people being injured by exploding ecig batteries.

But the news of an explosion that injured a mother of two in England and the one that injured a teenager in Canada are related. Just like they are related to the man in New Hampshire who suffered burns due to an ecig exploding. All of these incidents have to do with the real dangers of vaping; buying bad products.

We don’t mean bad products because they are overpriced. Nor do we mean to say they just don’t taste good or don’t produce the amount of vapor you want. No, we mean bad products because they don’t go through proper quality control. While most electronic cigarettes are made at least partly in China, there is a mammoth difference between purchasing from a reputable brand and something on a non-branded site or simply from ebay. It may be cheaper, but it heightens the dangers of vaping exponentially.

It’s true that sometimes there are faulty products and that can happen in any industry. But there is also a reason we don’t see anything negative like this in the news about any of the top brands we recommend. These are companies that have a reputation to uphold and so they take all the necessary precautions, and even the precautions that aren’t necessary. Whether driven out of a concern for their consumers or a concern for their public image, you’ll be hard-pressed to see anyone working harder to make sure that the product you buy doesn’t fail in such a dramatic way as to explode or otherwise put you in danger.

The other thing that is going on is the serious concern regarding counterfeit ecigs. Fakes are everywhere. The dangers of vaping have been exacerbated by the sheer volume of clone ecigs on the market. You will find cloned ecigs and vaping products all over the internet and sometimes even in vape shops. How bad is the problem? Here are some numbers that will shock most of you.

There are a handful or world-class ecig manufacturers in China. Eight Aspire, Kangertech, Smok, Innokin, Joyetech and a few others are exceptional. They make some of the best vaping products in the world. They have strict quality control and use only the best materials. These companies are located in an industrial area of Shenzhen, China. Within that same are are 600 ecig factories. 600!

Most of those factories are producing terrible knockoffs at rock bottom prices. The fakes look just like the real thing. They are being sold online through a number of retail and wholesale websites. Even vape shop owners are being fooled by some of these products. This is a serious problem and results in a lot of bad press for the industry when one of these clone ecigs is the root cause of some well publicized ecig accident.

If you are interested in a Kanger, Aspire, Joyetch product, you need to buy from a reputable source that knows what they are doing. The vaping business is booming and pretenders and fakes are trying to cash in as are the brands that are just blatantly selling junk! With no regulation in place it is buyer beware.

The real culprit here is greed. The dangers of second hand vaping aren’t real, nor are all these other accusations that just stoke people’s fears. No, the dangers of vaping lie in cheap ecigs. That’s why the FDA should be worried about cheap ecigs instead of fruity ecig flavors. As a consumer, make sure that these harrowing stories in the news don’t put you off from making the switch to vapor. All you have to do is make sure you buy from the right sources and you’ll be well on your way to leaving traditional tobacco cigarettes behind you, as well as ridiculous claims about the dangers of vaping.

After being introduced to the public in the early part of the 21st Century, electronic cigarettes (e-cigarettes) or ‘vapes’ as they are now widely known, have skyrocketed in popularity.

Is this because of the appeal to smokers as a safer way to get their nicotine hit? Or has its adoption by the bearded hipsters made it now the seemingly cool thing to do?

An independent survey revealed that 94% of people asked felt that e-cigarettes had become more than just an aid for a smoker to inevitably stop smoking. Instead it is widely felt that e-cigarettes have become something much more, its own subculture known as ‘vaping’.

Jack Hobbs, an employee at Steam Machine Portsmouth, stated “vaping has become more than just stopping smoking, it’s become a hobby, a community.”

So what’s the appeal? Nine months prior, the managing director of Steam Machine, Paul Cheapé, was selling e-cigarette fluids out of a bedroom. Five months later, he was turning over £10,000 a month, which has enabled Steam Machine to become the name on every vapers lips within Portsmouth. With a personal license already obtained, Paul hopes to have a bar up and running by January, complete with Xboxes and projectors.

“Vaping has become a subculture” Paul began. “Other shops just sell the basics and have little knowledge about the products. We source the world for the best flavours, and have staff capable of fixing any problems with your item.” The pride Paul felt for his business was clear. “We have a lounge for people to come in and try flavours, and a back area to have modifications done to your kit. We’re a lounge more than a shop.”

Surely then, it can be very daunting for someone who is trying to stop smoking to enter this community?

Paul countered this notion by stating, “the customers we receive are a 50/50 split. People come in here knowing what they want, others come in because they want a safer alternative to smoking and maybe don’t know where to begin. That why I always make sure I have someone on the door ready to help”.

One doesn’t have to look far on the internet to find various videos of people producing vast clouds of steam, or others producing videos mocking it. Of course, as with everything in today’s society, it is easy to find a wealth of memes poking fun at those who choose to partake in the vaping culture.

Yet Paul treats this mockery as nothing more than light-hearted banter. “I don’t mind it, it’s part of being a subculture, every subculture gets their fair share of abuse”.

So then are the people who are interested in places like these, those who are looking for a safe alternative to smoking, or is there the chance that people who have never smoked before find the massive plumes of vapour that can be produced appealing?

In the beginning, those who wished to stop smoking were faced with no more than tobacco or menthol flavour. Now flavours range from Monster’s ‘Rossi’ energy drink to the much love cocktail ‘sex on the beach’. This gulf in flavours is sure to only increase the appeal to those who wish to go smoke-free and also to those looking for a new hobby.

There are growing fears however, that many people do not realise that when they take up this hobby. they are still inhaling nicotine, which is the main cause of addiction amongst smokers. Due to this; as of 2016, e-cigarettes are set to undergo strict regulations and be treated as either tobacco or medical products, which could see a change in the way many people treat ‘vaping’.

However, an expert independent review published by the Public Health England (PHE) has concluded that E-cigarettes are 95% (at closest estimate) less harmful than smoking.

In conclusion it would appear that e-cigarettes have created this vaping culture that accepts previous and non-smokers alike. And whilst the health implications are as yet still unclear, it certainly seems to be a successful vice to aid those who wish to wean themselves off tobacco based products and is a culture that doesn’t look like disappearing anytime soon.
