Is Vaping Safe?

Whether you use sticks, pens, mods, or any other kind of vaporizer, it is likely a good idea to try and break the habit. Whilst more long-term research is still needed, particularly on how e-cigarettes affect dental health, recent research does not appear favorable for vaping.

New research is showing that vaping devices can release a variety of chemicals and metal particles, which could then be inhaled by users. The levels of these toxic chemicals and metals may be lower than those found in tobacco smoke, however, some of these chemicals are known to be poisonous, and others even cancer-causing.

Some of the toxic chemicals that can be inhaled when vaping include:

  • propylene glycol,
  • glycerine
  • formaldehyde
  • acetaldehyde
  • acrolein
  • toluene
  • nitrosamines
  • nickel
  • cadmium
  • aluminum
  • silicon
  • lead

There was a time when vaping was thought to be a healthier alternative to cigarette smoking, however, as time passes, more and more studies are suggesting that this is not the case.
