There are vaping haters everywhere. As with any new technological advancement, the vaping industry is witnessing its fair share anti-propaganda coming out of the mouths of politicians, news media, and even members of the “scientific” community questioning the validity and safety of its paraphernalia. While most vapers would never recommend this practice to their non-smoking loved ones, it is considered one of the most effective methods to quit smoking tobacco and chemical-laced cigarettes that can lead to all sorts of medical hazards. So, the next time that someone starts spouting off about the dangers of vaping, use these three indisputable facts to shut down the haters once and for all.

1. Second-hand vapor lacks the thousands of toxins found in cigarette smoke.
In December of 2013, the Oxford Journal published a report involving the numbers and levels of toxins found in e-cig vapor and eliquids. Scientists agree that absolutely no toxins exist, although there is a very weak amount of nicotine included in the vapor. But nicotine is not a toxin. In fact, many common foods contain significantly higher levels of nicotine than e-cigs, including potatoes, tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, and even the trendy Green Tea that all the fitness buffs love.
2. Vaping does not lead to heart disease.
Everyone knows that smoking leads to heart disease, respiratory ailments, and the hardening of the arteries. Recent research by the Onassis Cardiac Surgery Center confirms that vaping and e-cigs have no such effects. They have no negative effects on the oxygenation of the blood and have no identifiable links to heart disease since the vapor is free from all toxins found in tobacco smoke. Other reports also support the Onassis research, including one by world=class heart surgeon Dr. Konstantino Farsalinos and another by International Journal ofEnvironmental Research and Public Health.
3. Smoking kills, and so will Vaping Regulation by the FDA.
Vaping haters love to reference news reports that offer misleading statistics and attention-grabbing headlines about how deadly vaping and e-cigs can be. But many of these news stories are just that- “stories” that are specifically designed to gain huge numbers of “likes” and “shares” across social media. But Dr. Gilbert Ross from the American Council on Science and Health takes argument with this sorts of biased reporting tactics. In fact, Ross says that it only takes “common sense” to determine that vaping is significantly healthier than smoking.
He also goes on to state that the currently proposed federal regulation on the vaping industry will essentially hinder the timely advancement of new technology substantially while increasing costs to the average consumer of e-juices, e-cigs, and vaping devices astronomically. If smoking becomes cheaper than vaping or e-cigs, we will likely see a huge increase smoking-related fatalities. To put this another way, politicians proposing vaping regulation by the FDA could be directly responsible for millions of lives lost for generations to come.
