Cut through the smoke and discover the real benefits of breathing e-cig vapor over tobacco smoking
When an e-cig user exhales, the vapor cloud that comes out looks a lot like smoke. Water vapor looks so similar to smoke that they are often mistaken for cigarettes. But the truth is that vapor and smoke could not be more different.
There are lots of reasons why switching to e-cig vapor is one of the smartest things you can do. Here are just a few of them:
The fact that smoke is bad for your health is not breaking news. One of the main issues with cigarettes is the how it endangers the people around it—smokers and nonsmokers alike. But another hazard of smoke that people don't realize is that it takes fire to produce smoke. Smoke from a cigarette is created by the process of combustion—the burning of tobacco—which presents serious fire danger.
In fact, according to FEMA, smoking is a leading cause of home fire deaths in the United States, killing approximately 7,600 people each year!
E-cig vapor, on the other hand, is produced by a covered heating coil, which drastically reduces the risk of a fire accident. While there have been incidents involving overheated e-cigs in the past (almost always with a "mod"), these cases are extremely rare.
Smoke may be a gas, but it carries lots of ash, tar and other sediments that eventually settle on solid objects. This factor becomes apparent when smokers light up in their car, leaving a film of white specks and gray dust all over their dashboard. Vapor, however, disappears without a trace. The vapor exhaled during e-cig use is simply water in the form of gas, which, like a cloud, evaporates in seconds. No mess means no cleanup required.
You can usually smell a smoker before you see them. If you've grown accustomed to the odor, it may not bother you that much. But there's no denying that they smell. What's more, the odor gets on everything—clothes, furniture, carpet, etc. But if you take a whiff of vapor, you won't smell anything—or if you do, it will be a faint hint of cotton candy, mint, or whatever other flavor you were using in your e-cig.
With vapor instead of smoke, you teeth also benefit. Smoking leads a number of dental health problems, including bad breath, plaque buildup, risk of oral cancer, and tooth discoloration. Saying "sayonara" to smoking and "hola" to vapor is one of the best ways to protect your pearly whites from turning a gross splotchy yellow.
As an added bonus, with e-cigs you won't have to get your teeth whitened as often, meaning more money in your pocket.
Like it or not, the social stigma attached to smokers because of their pungent odor and the relentless efforts of anti-smoking lobbyists has made cigarette users less attractive to the opposite sex (at least to nonsmokers). The lobbying group Action on Smoking and Health (ASH) recently ran an experiment with Tinder, the dating app, where they made two profiles of the same person—one as a smoker and the other a nonsmoker. In the end, ASH found that the nonsmoking profile got twice as many matches.
By steering clear of cigarettes (and by extension smoke), you can singlehandedly make sure you don't stay single for long.
Vapor seriously outperforms smoke in the taste bud department too. For starters, vapor doesn't dull your sense of taste like smoking does. Cigarette smoke flattens your taste buds, making food less distinct and palatable. Smoking with vapor instead allows you to continue your habit without sacrificing your sense of taste.
