The topic was posted about a week ago on one of our social media platforms. The individual who raised the question was having great difficulty wrapping their brain around a person advocating health and wellness, while at the same time, promoting vaping.
It is a legitimate question that produced much debate. But before we get into the meat of the argument, I believe a few keywords should be defined:
- Health: the state of being free from illness or injury.
- Wellness: the state of being in good health, especially as an actively pursued goal.
- Vaping: to inhale and exhale the vapor produced by an electronic cigarette or any other device.
Okay. Now that we have those definitions in place, let’s take a look at some facts:
At this present moment, the biggest documented harm with vaping is that it can cause dependence, as some vape juices, not all, contain nicotine. There is no scientific study with solid, verifiable evidence that vaping can have life-threatening consequences. But this does not mean there aren’t those of the world who relentlessly seek to cast the vape culture in a negative light. Take the New England Journal of Medicine for example.
Back in 2015, the journal published a study which revealed a chemical called Formaldehyde is produced while vaping at very high ambient temperatures. Even so, the exact same study revealed that when vaping is enjoyed at moderately high temperatures, no traces of Formaldehyde were found.
In our line of vape juices, there are four ingredients total: propylene glycol, vegetable glycerin, flavoring and nicotine (unless you are using one of our 0 nicotine flavors – then there are only 3 ingredients in our juices). It is a well known fact that generally speaking, something made simply and with the least amount of ingredients is best – there is no question what you are putting into your body. For more information about what is in our vape juice – reference this post here.
At the end of the day, what it all boils down to is— improvement. Enhancing your life. Making something, anything better. Make no mistake about it, there are drawbacks to virtually everything we think and do. There are substitutes for salt, sugar, butter, eggs, sour cream and shortening. There’s even a substitute for shaving cream. Yes, shaving cream. Why? I have no clue. But what I do know is, health & wellness is a lifestyle that takes time to develop. And vaping is a step in the right direction for a majority of those interested.
