Although still a relatively recent phenomenon, vaping has gained enormous popularity over the past decade. Unfortunately, there are still many incorrect myths circulating about the danger of e-cigarettes. Typically spread by those critical of the vaping industry, these myths dismiss the actual scientific facts about vaping.
So, what is the real deal with vaping? Our video offers a snapshot of some of the most common myths that are portrayed about the e-cigarette industry and lays out the scientific facts about vaping and looks at where tobacco smoke sits in comparison. As you will see in the video, many large-scale research projects have investigated the health effects of vaping vs. smoking and the results have been largely positive.
For example, one common myth is that, much like second-hand smoke from cigarettes, second-hand vapor from vaping devices is toxic. However, according to a study by the Oxford Journal e-cigarettes are not a source of second-hand exposure to combustion toxicants.

Another myth that is widely circulated claims that that vaping is not an effective way of quitting cigarette smoking. However, a global survey of 19,000 consumers run found that in many cases e-cigarettes are used to avoid the harm associated with smoking cigarettes. It revealed that this is very effective even among highly-dependent smokers.

Oxford Academic - a renowned scholastic journal will no longer allow authors to call vaping devices tobacco products. In an editorial entitled “Are e-cigarettes tobacco products?”, editor-in-chief Marcus Munafò explains that the journal will only use the term “tobacco products” to describe items that contain actual leaf tobacco.
As of 2018, there are one billion smokers in the world – that’s one in seven people! This figure gets even higher when you look solely at low and middle-income countries which make up a staggering four in five of the world’s smokers.
