An article published on CNN, “Teens use e-cigarettes for ‘dripping,’ study says”, is one of the latest negative articles published by the mainstream media last month. If you vape, then you might know that this is pure bullsh*t. In an effort to promote our vaping advocacy, we will also be debunking news articles that shed bad light to the industry.
A notable part of the article says:
Dripping generates higher heating coil temperatures than conventional use of e-cigarettes — and this is a safety concern. “Higher temperatures lead to greater emissions of a class of harmful chemicals known as volatile aldehydes,” including formaldehyde and acrolein, Shihadeh said.
While there may be some truth to this, it only happens when you are vaping on very high temperatures that your mouth wouldn’t be able to handle. To give you an idea, that’s vaping with dry hits and burned lips 100% of the time; and no one in history has ever done that for as far as we know.
Ever since the start of the vaping industry, “dripping” has been there. You shouldn’t even be treating it like it’s some sort of drug because that was how e-cigarettes are designed in the first place. The mainstream media should stop posting black propaganda like this because 1) it’s stupid and 2) it isn’t true. And even if it was that bad, we would like to request exact data on studies conducted that there was even one casualty or if anybody contracted a disease while vaping.
“Dripping” is actually more common than stupid non-vapers think. Almost 80% of vape enthusiasts prefer it over using tanks because of the fact that it produces more vapor. While any vaper doesn’t need an explanation on this, we will be elaborating for the Average Joe’s sake. “Dripping” is a conventional way of vaping and doesn’t deserve this much media attention because it is what e-cigarettes were designed for.
Also, the amount of nicotine that you get from vaping is nowhere nearly as potent as what you would get from smoking. And it would require a very large dose to even have a serious impact on your body. The mainstream media does a great job on explaining how nicotine is bad for you. It is addictive, and we put it on e-liquids to give us that nicotine fix that we would otherwise get from smoking a cigarette. Smoking does offer a lot of bonuses though, like tar, carbon monoxide, and thousands of other deadly chemicals.
Come on CNN, you are better than this.
