Since the booming popularity of vape and e-cigs, there have been a lot of critics out there and seemingly, a lot of people who just want to hate people who vape. This has led to many numerous rumors being spread about vaping in general that turn out to be wrong. They do this for their own promotional sake and simply just to smite people who vape instead of just letting them do something they thoroughly enjoy doing.
Now, the myth and rumor spreaders are at it again, but this time, they seem to have a lot of backing support for this one. A lot of people feel that there may be some validity to this claim so we’ll go over it in detail and we’ll find out if you should actually be worried or not as in, could this affect you? Recently, there’s been numerous reports popping up and study groups showing that e-cigarettes supposedly contain some toxic metals inside of them and everyone using them is breathing in toxic metals.
So what’s the problem with all of these reports? Well, the main problem is that there’s really only one source and there’s no scientific study or analysis put into it. It was literally just a study done at a college, specially, the University of Southern California. You cannot base all of your factual information on just one single study by one university, especially a group of students. University tests are often not only wrong but inconclusive.
Well, the information in their report does sound quite bad, but how concerned should people who vape be? Should it be time to hang it up and go back to smoking like regular? Well, don’t do that quite yet. Their entire study isn’t bullcrap and there is some kind of factual truth to the things they found. Dr. Constantinos Sioutas was one of the study’s main authors. He stated that while there was definitely some presence of the metals found in the vape material and while it does raise a few concerns, you shouldn’t be overly concerned.
It was noted that Sioutas stated that e-cigarettes were still far safer than actually smoking and inhaling dangerous toxins into your lungs. There’s another issue that comes to light when we look at this study as well. Only one model was even tested out of all the e-cigarette models. The model tested was the Elips Serie C. How can you base such a study off one single model? However, the only real conclusive thing that they did do was try to mimic real world scenarios by doing the experiment in offices and different rooms.
However, what’s not clear is if they tested out smoking and vaping in those same rooms or if they did the experiments for both studies in different rooms. The test would’ve made a bit more sense if they did to get a better comparison of the two. So while this is just yet another test showing that toxic materials could be inside of an e-cigarette, it’s still far safer than smoking.
