The History of Vaping

Vaping has gained a lot of popularity since the products hit the market in 2003 and for a very long time were considered a great substitution for cigarette smokers but recently there has been a lot of bad press for the vaping industry with 10 or so deaths now linked to vaping and around 500 cases of lung disease also linked to the smoking substitute, causing many to quit vaping and a lot of them going back to cigarette smoking, I will be transparent here and say I am not a medical professional in any way and I have been vaping for a couple years now, which is the reason I've done so much research on this subject. So why is it that after almost 17 years of vape products being around it's just now that we're hearing about all the dangers? let's go over the facts and see why.

Lung Disease and Deaths

Since the CDC has been reporting on the deaths and the lung disease caused by vaping it has caused a nationwide panic regarding vaping, we live in a world now where people read a headline and skip the story believing whatever the headline says without knowing all the facts, yes there are deaths and disease linked to vaping but did you realize almost all of these people reported vaping CBD,THC or homemade e-liquids? So far not a single case has been linked to actual manufactured E-liquids sold on the market, your typical vaper uses it to quit smoking and most e-liquids do not contain CBD or THC.

10 million people vape everyday and only a small handful of them have had issues because of it, yea I'm sure vaping isn't good for you but when compared to cigarettes they are a much safer alternative, The CDC went into "cover their butt" mode and decided just to deem all vape products dangerous when they just don't have the scientific data to back that up.

People need to do their own research on things like this because we now have people going back to smoking cigarettes because the CDC threw everyone into panic mode, normal e-liquid that you can buy in stores is not what is causing all the disease and deaths right now and people assuming they know what they're talking about and spreading false information is causing people to go back to smoking which every study ever done on the subject shows is much,much worse for you than vaping.

In short vaping is one of the best and most successful ways to quit smoking that has ever come along and we're letting the tobacco companies and their lobbyists convince us otherwise, please educate yourself and don't just believe everything you read, even if it is from the government, actually especially if it's from the government.
