Cigarette smoking is responsible for around 480,000 deaths every year in the United States. On average, cigarette smokers die 10 years younger than non-smokers. Smoking cigarettes used to be a normal and social thing to do in the 1900s, but, as we can see by the thousands of lung cancer deaths each year, it is detrimental to your health.
Why is Vaping Better Than Smoking Cigarettes?
E-cigarettes heat nicotine (extracted from tobacco), flavorings and other chemicals to create a water vapor that you inhale. Regular tobacco cigarettes contain 7,000 chemicals, many of which are toxic. While we don’t know exactly what the long-term effects are in e-cigarettes, there’s almost no doubt that they expose you to fewer toxic chemicals than traditional cigarettes. The flavored vegetable glycerin that is used to mix with the nicotine is not harmless, but is much less harmful than cigarette toxins. Vape products have created a market for nicotine lovers to enjoy a smoke without the deadly toxins. The health aspect of switching to vaping is definitely unarguably definite.
But What if I Don’t Like the Taste of Vape?
Another good thing about vaping is that you can buy almost any flavor you can think of. Companies have diversified their flavors to include even the most bizarre flavors, even jellybean or banana ice cream. Avid vape influencers have illustrated the uniqueness of vape flavors by growing the already popular vape culture into an almost $8 billion industry.
They continue to take market share form the tobacco companies as it has become increasingly apparent that vape products taste better and are healthier than tobacco products. The vape industry is growing into a large and powerful market.
