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.
