E-cigarettes are all the rage lately and with this new popularity comes all kinds of misinformation. Here are some of the most common myths about e-cigarettes, debunked.
1. Nicotine causes cancer
It isn’t the nicotine in tobacco products that causes all the negative health effects. The reason smoking regular cigarettes is so bad for you is because it involves burning the tobacco, releasing not only the nicotine but all the compounds contained in the tobacco such as carbon monoxide, arsenic and lead. Nicotine itself is about as dangerous as caffeine is for your body when not combined with the negative health effects of all the other substances found in tobacco.
2. E-cigarettes are produced in unsafe environments
While some e-cigarette manufacturers undoubtedly produce their product in less-than-ideal conditions, at Pink Spot we only use pharmaceutical grade nicotine, food grade flavorings, and 100% kosher PG/VG. Additionally, we produce our e-cigarettes in a food-grade facility to ensure you’ll have the best possible experience with our products.
3. E-cigarette manufacturers target children
Minors are actually less likely to use e-cigarettes than they are to use tobacco for several reasons. First, the cost of a start up kit is between $35 and $50 online and between $90 and $150 at most kiosks, plus the cost of the accessories. That’s a large price tag for most adults, let alone a child. In addition, the majority of vendors already restrict sales of e-cigarettes to those over the age of 18.
4. E-cigarettes are more addictive than tobacco
Studies have actually shown that e-cigarettes deliver less nicotine than tobacco smoke, and it’s delivered in a form that the body can’t use as efficiently. Also, the body doesn’t respond any differently to the nicotine in e-cigarettes than it does with regular cigarettes.
5. E-cigarettes will cause non-smokers to start smoking
Given that the start up costs are relatively high compared to the price of analogs and how readily available tobacco cigarettes are, it’s unlikely that people will decide to start smoking just because e-cigarettes are available. Because most people say using e-cigarettes makes analogs taste extremely unpleasant, smoking e-cigarettes will actually make people less likely to use tobacco.
