Better still, vaping is up to 95% healthier than smoking according to PHE reports! So why wait? Get your hands on some vaping equipment and stop smoking this October!

What are the benefits of vaping over smoking?

Is vaping safe?

When compared to smoking, the answer is a resounding YES! According to PHE: “E-cigarettes are not completely risk free but when compared to smoking, evidence shows they carry just a fraction of the harm.” To find out more about vaping safely, click here.

Are e-liquids safe?

E-liquids are made from the basic building blocks of water, flavouring, vegetable glycerin (VG) and propylene glycol (PG). Both PG and VG are viewed as safe by the FDA, with VG commonly used as a food additive, while you can find VG in many medicines approved by the FDA. When bought from trusted retailers, E-liquids are a much safer alternative to cigarettes.

What are the health benefits when you stop smoking?

There are massive health benefits in switching to vaping from smoking. In 2017 over 77,000 people sadly died from smoking related illness - and that’s just in the UK. According to Cancer Research UK, cigarettes contain a huge variety of toxic chemicals, including:

  • Benzene - An industrial solven
  • Cadmium - Used in batteries
  • Arsenic - A poison
  • Formaldehyde - Used as a preservative in laboratories
  • Polonium-210 - Highly radioactive

These chemicals are carcinogenic, or in other words cause cancer. Over 5,000 other chemicals are released when smoking cigarettes, while e-liquids rely on a far simpler recipe. While it is true vaping is not completely risk free, it is up 95% healthier than smoking

Other benefits

There are plenty of other bonuses from quitting smoking that you and your loved ones are sure to appreciate. First of all, vaping does not leave a lingering smell, the one that clings to clothes and other fabrics; vaping is all about flavour, not the stench! Also, e-liquids will not affect your appearance like smoking does. Smoking can cause thinning hair, yellow fingers, blackened teeth and other nasty consequences.

Financial benefits

Not only is smoking far better for your health, it can also be much easier on your wallet. Check out the infographic below to see the whopping savings you could make by switching smoking for vaping.
