4 Ridiculous E-Cigarette Stories Debunked

4 Ridiculous E-Cigarette Stories Debunked

The media loves to run stories related to electronic cigarettes, but a lot of times the information is just not accurate. We’re sick of bad reporting and we want to clear up some rumors and debunk a few myths. Here are four ridiculous e-cigarette stories that we’ve encountered lately and the truth behind them.

1. Exploding E-Cigarette Batteries

In February 2012, Tim Holloway was using his electronic cigarette when the battery exploded in his mouth. Ever since this story first hit the news, people have used it as an argument against e-cigarettes, claiming they are dangerous and explosive. However, what most people do not understand is that this was no ordinary e-cigarette battery that exploded. Holloway was using a “mod”, which is basically an e-cig that he built himself.

When you buy an ordinary e-cig from manufacturers like V2 Cigs or South Beach Smoke, you don’t have to worry about this. Manufacturers have already run safety tests on their products before they were ever sold. Unless you are building your own e-cigarettes or doing heavy modifications, exploding batteries isn’t really a concern.

2. Nicotine Causes Cancer

Some argue that e-cigarettes still cause cancer because they contain nicotine. While nicotine has a really bad reputation, it’s not the cause of cancer. Instead, the thousands of carcinogens in tobacco smoke are the reason that cigarettes cause cancer, but e-cigarettes eliminate tobacco smoke completely. In case you are still skeptical, check out this study where scientists spent two years studying the impact of inhaled nicotine in rats. During the study, rats inhaled pure nicotine for 20 hours a day, five days a week. After two years, the rats that were breathing nicotine had no higher incidence of cancer. In fact, the only difference is that they weighed less than the control group. The bottom line? Nicotine does not cause cancer.

3. E-Cigarettes Hurt the Lungs

One of the latest arguments against electronic cigarettes hinges on the thought that inhaling e-cig vapor damages the lungs. People really latched onto this argument after a group or researchers at the University of Athens claimed that e-cig vapor increased airway resistance. While lots of news outlets aired this story as proof that e-cigarettes are harmful, they didn’t tell people the full story. Here’s the part they left out: you can increase your airway resistance in a lot of ways, but the most common is by breathing in hot, humid air. Increased resistance isn’t necessarily a terrible thing. People who live in southern Florida breathe in humid air every single day, but they aren’t suffering from lung damage!

4. E-Cigarettes Lure Kids Into Smoking

Of all the ways people try to refute e-cigarettes, this one is probably the most ridiculous. Some say that because e-cigs come in a variety of flavors, they will appeal to children and cause many kids to develop a nicotine addiction. In turn, the e-cigs could be the gateway that causes some young people to start smoking. Now let’s look at the many flaws in that argument. First of all, how can e-cigarettes be considered a kid-friendly product? Starter kits are expensive. While kids can easily steal a cigarette or two from a smoking parent or sibling without being found out, it’s not going to be quite as easy to dish out $100+ on a starter kit just so they can taste the fruity e-cig flavors.

Second, most of the flavored e-liquids and e-cig cartridges are not readily available in service stations or traditional smoke shops. Instead, kids would have to buy them online using a valid credit or debit card. Very few kids would be dumb enough to steal a parent’s credit card to order e-cigarette supplies online. Plus, they would have to worry about someone else being home to open the box when the shipment arrived. The whole scenario is just really absurd.

The bottom line is that you have to be smarter than the media. When you hear a news report about electronic cigarettes, don’t take it at face value. Do your own research and formulate an educated opinion of e-cigarettes before you automatically decide they aren’t a viable option.
