FDA Warns that vaping is not a “Healthy Alternative” to Cigarettes

About Vaping and E-cigarettes

When vaping first started to become mainstream, it was marketed as being a healthy alternative to cigarettes. From and outwardly appearance, that would make sense, but that was before the devices and the chemicals used were properly tested. It was thought that the vapor is merely water and that it dissipates. This would, in theory, be healthier than smoking traditional cigarettes, due to the carcinogens contained in the smoke. Also, since it was vapor, it could be used indoors, because it did not produce a harmful or offensive odor, or any known side effects.

Vaping and e-cigarette devices could deliver the nicotene and the sensation of smoking, without the offensive odor or producing lung-damaging smoke.

How do E-cigarettes harm you?

There are several ways in which a vaping device or the act of vaping can be harmful to it's user.

  • Vaping device malfunction
  • Some vaping liquids contain diacetyl
  • Some devices deliver toxic amounts of Nicotene
  • E-liquids have chemicals in them that are harmful.

If E-cigarettes are harmful, how did they get past the FDA?

E-cigarette companies were able to get around the FDA, because the chemicals they contain are not harmful when ingested normally. This enabled them to slip past regulations and reach the hands of consumers. However, it was discovered that when certain chemicals, such as diacetyl are heated, they become highly toxic when inhaled.
