There have been real studies done on vapor showing it to be the safer alternative; including a Government Study in the United Kingdom. Vaping will not cause popcorn lung; in fact, it’s more likely to occur from cigarettes. Cigarettes contain upwards of 1,000 times more Diacetyl than you will ever find in vape juice. Furthermore; there isn’t a single case of popcorn lung from vaping. Also, Diacetyl is now not allowed to be used in many e-liquids made in The United States. The main ingredients in vapor are Vegetable Glycerin and Propylene Glycol. They’re both not known Carcinogens. VG is a harmless ingredient used in many of foods, an artificial sweetener that’s used in products that need to stay moist. It is also used in most dental products, including a persons denture washing paste, and even toothpaste. Here’s what’s in a cigarette…
I switched from cigarettes to nicotine vapor around four years ago; and I feel much healthier. While smoking cigarettes, I had far less stamina and could only run for a short while before needing to catch my breath; this is not the case after switching to vapor. Plus it motivates me to walk or run my dog more often. I also have more stamina when it comes to lifting weights; doing crunches, or other exercises. Here’s my short story…
After two and a half to three weeks of only vaping; I began to have brown mucus in my throat in the mornings, even snotty brown lumps. It went away after a little while. The brown mucus was all of the built up tar and chemicals built up in my lungs and Bronchial tubes being rejected out of my body. This is from the Aveololi’s in my lungs springing back to life and rejecting all of the bad built up junk; my lungs had began the healing process.
This is due to the known fact that cigarettes lacerate or cut the lungs; but vapor does not. The body absorbs the tar and chemicals from the cigarette at an increased rate because of this. With vaping; the body actually absorbs less nicotine, because vaping doesn’t lacerate the lungs. Vape juice also doesn’t contain any known carcinogens or cancer causing substances; or harmful types of chemicals. My stamina has also greatly improved. I knew then; that vapor is the healthy option. – Kyle James Lee
There’s also hardly any garbage waste produced by vapor products…[caption id="attachment_39989" align="aligncenter" width="564"] e-cigarette waste compared to cigarette waste. Image Credit: WhyeCig.com http://www.3fvape.com/[/caption]
NOTE: Avoid plastic tanks; citrus vape juices can make the tanks crack!
I purchase my vape liquids from Vape Joose‘s website; which is found at VapeJoose.com Their juice is high quality and they’re all clear in color; not too sweet either. I purchase an order five days ahead of time before I run out; as to not run out before my e-liquids arrive. Their shipping times are steady. I might buy a smaller bottle or two from a shop to tide me over. VapeJoose.com has an excellent variety of great juice at a great price. They send out discount newsletters through email. They also do not use bottle labeling or advertising that is associated with targeting underage sale to minors OR Intellectual Property Theft / IP Theft.
I go with 3 mg nicotine with no extra flavor shots. 3mg of nicotine might sound like a lot, unless you use it’s true value; meaning .3 mg per ml; 3 mg e-juice is considered a low level of nicotine. 12 mg is too strong for me… 3 mg seems to be the right amount for me; but people use it, my cousin uses 1.5 mg nicotine! I used to vape 6mg but have since lowered it. I prefer 70/30 VG/PG ratio. Vegetable Glycerin and Propylene Glycol are mostly harmless to humans; unless consumed in very large amounts at once. Nicotine itself is similar in this way; being mostly harmless in moderate amounts; and is similar to caffeine. It would take 50 mg of nicotine at once in order to induce a possible nicotine overdose; thus why e-liquid products always tell you to never drink them.
My Wismec RX200S vape mod uses three 18650 batteries and has a bigger and better digital display compared to my old regular RX200. My tank is called a SMOK TFV8 cloud beast, and they work wonderfully together. I get a good grip with a three battery mod. For people just starting; even if you get a three battery, a regulated mod that normally has a digital display, lets you adjust the watts, meaning more or less vapor produced. The tank uses replaceable coils; they can last up to a week and a half per coil, or a bit less with VapeJoose.com, and a three pack is around $17 at the most after tax. There are a few different types of coils for the TFV8 tanks; but they’re all efficient. I order my coils on ebay for $12 a pack with free shipping and U.S. seller. But I always make sure to look if the account is a reputable seller with a high positive feedback percentage on ebay.
it’s best to keep your mod at 100 watts at the most; in order to not burn up the coils. I prefer 90 watts.
UPDATE: The TFV12 has been released… I hear it’s pretty nice; but I’m happy with my TFV8! There’s also now a 4 battery Wismec RX300 mod; but I’m happy with my RX200S! :D
This has been my story about vaping being the healthy option. Thanks for your time! – Kyle James Lee
