AS Limpid asked us to take this topic into off topic I will repeat my post regarding my concerns about vaping as follows:

Whoa,  hold your horses partner. 

Yes water vapour might be harmless but what are the things that make the flavour?  This is what worries me because it is chemicals which make the flavour. 

I asked someone I know how she knew if the vape juice was safe and she said "of course it is otherwise the vape shop wouldn't sell it" 

Now even companies like Findus and Tesco etc suddenly found out that they had horse meat in their beef. 

Vaping is totally unregulated and I can't see the Vape shop carrying out any kind of supply chain auditing.  So you have chemicals of unknown substance from unknown source being vapourised and inhaled deeply into people's lungs. 

I give it a couple if years before the troubles start and we realise people are developing all kinds of conditions from God only knows what they have been inhaling,  and I for one would also like to avoid inhaling it second hand. 

 

Am I the only one with these concerns?

We all have to die of something so do what you fancy is my motto , for example , processed meat may kill me but at least I'll day happy rather than miserable like a vegetarian :)

Smoking is the country’s number one killer, causing nearly 78,000 deaths each year in England. While the long-term effect of e-cigarettes is unknown, and they are not completely risk-free, the current evidence indicates that they are significantly less harmful than smoking tobacco and are helping smokers to quit. Organisations need to consider the comfort of all colleagues, smokers, non-smokers and vapers, and show consideration when creating their vaping policies.

Personally I don't like the smell (from the added flavours) and the ones that create a lot of vapour can be annoying.

The truth is, anything inhaled over a lengthy period with regular frequency can cause harm. The human body is not meant to intake and break down substances through inhalation, other than the ol' O2 to CO2. Just about any solid or liquid substance contains carcinogens. Whether it be tobacco, cannabis, or even dried mown grass, there will be a substance contained that will cause the body's cells to go mad.

Vaping is only reasonably new, but  health risks are inevitable.

I vape, it had helped me quit smoking.

I have a little e-cig that I use when I am out and about that produces about the same amount of vapour that a cigarette does smoke.

I have another one which gives off the mahoosive clouds of vapour which I use solely when I am at home.

I hate people that use them outside and cover me with their obscenely large clouds.

Why don't they make those vaping sticks in the shape of pipes? 

I think they do .  But obviously the bigger they are  the better they are because of battery life .  Not sure how much trying to look cool comes into it ybh. . .
