Typical Vaping Myths You Should Know About
Myths and misconceptions can easily affect many industries, and unfortunately, vaping seems to be a topic of discussion that’s completed riddled with all sorts of myths and information that’s just downright false. From ridiculous claims like vaping will ‘freeze your lungs’ to things like ‘more than 50 puffs in a day,’ the team at Sunshine Vape wanted to bring some of these laughably untrue claims to light by busting them. Like any good online vapor shop, we want to make sure that our customers and fellow vapers have a good understanding of what’s true and what’s not when it comes to this promising alternative to smoking cigarettes.

Myth: E-Liquid Contains Antifreeze
This is a hilariously untrue claim. It is true that one of the main ingredients found in e-juice, propylene glycol, is also used in antifreeze. However, literally everything else found in antifreeze besides propylene glycol is not in e-liquid. Saying e-liquid contains antifreeze is somewhat akin to saying that you’re drinking water when you’re really drinking a soda or a beer, because, you know, those beverages contain water.
It’s a shame, but even vaping is not exempt from logical fallacies.
Myth: Vaping Causes As Much Harm To Your Body As Smoking Cigarettes
Nope. This is blatantly false. Now, we’re not going to go around and say that vaping is healthy for you, per say, but we will stand behind the claim that vaping is a 100 percent healthier alternative to smoking tobacco or cigarettes. Aside from the fact that e-liquid has four ingredients in it compared to the thousands of chemicals found in cigarettes, smokers who switched to vaping have been able to breathe better, have more endurance, and have an increased sense of smell and taste - all things that were hindered by smoking.
Myth: Non-Smokers Will Pick Up Vaping
It’s possible, but it’s also important to note that e-cigarettes were introduced as a tool to help smokers quit smoking. Vaping is not marketed toward non-smokers and it’s not marketed toward young teens.
According to a study conducted by the CDC in 2014, among the group of adults who had never smoked cigarettes, only 3.2 percent had ever actually tried vaping. The age group that had the highest rate of people trying a vape without ever smoking a real cigarette was the 18-24 age group at 9.7 percent.
Myth: Second-Hand Vapor Is As Dangerous As Second-Hand Smoke
While second-hand vapor may not be considerate to those around you, accidentally inhaling a slight amount of vapor from someone vaping next to you is not nearly going to cause as much harm to your lungs and your body as second-hand smoke would. Heck, try it out for yourself if you really want - stand next to a smoker and a vaper at separate times of the day, and let us know how you smell after you’ve hung out next to the smoker.
