History of Vaping: Introduction I still remember the first time I heard talking about “e-cigarettes”. It was something new, strange and not that many people knew about it. Moreover, back then it was considered a passing fad. Furthermore, the concept of “vaping” and “electronic cigarette” was not understood, and the future of vaping technology seemed destined to stagnation. It takes time to introduce something new as people have customs, preconceived ideas and habits (good and…

We still remember the scandal and controversy caused by an alleged illness caused by vaping. We know now that it was most likely caused by black-market THC e-liquids. Vape news were so confusing that many people believed that vaping was worse than smoking. This is not only dangerous assumption but also far from reality. Furthermore, vaping is safer than smoking and it doesn’t cause any serious lung condition. As matter of fact, and despite of…

Introduction Some people wonder how vaping works and what to expect when you quit smoking and start vaping. There are many misconceptions about vaping an e-liquids. However, the intake process and the ingredients in the e-liquids are actually pretty simple. For instance, vaping is just the process of inhaling an aerosol (also known as vapor) and e-liquids are a combination of mainly two ingredients: propylene glycol and vegetable glycerin.

This “vaping crisis” (in the States, because the rest of the world seem not to have any problems with vaping) is surrealist. Before continuing, let me tell you that I vape every day my flavored e-liquids and nicotine because I don’t submit to fear and fake news.

I get many news in my inbox, and Google Alerts diligently notifies me whenever there are new results that matches my interests. Since September 2019, I don’t get any other news about vaping than health related ones. From a pure medical perspective, it is…

For some time ago, I spoke with an investor about the ongoing e-liquids and vaping bans. From a purely medical point of view, e-liquids or vaping bans don’t make any sense, especially when cigarette smoking is widely available. Moreover, many smokers have been using vaping to quit smoking with higher successful rates than other smoke replacement therapies. My investor friend has experience collaborating with top vaping brands, and we all know that there is something…

I have recently read news about vaping and serious health issues. Furthermore, some readers have sent me news about the dangers of vaping and even mentioning “how dangerous vaping was”. Most of this news are about e-cigarette users who developed serious respiratory problems after vaping. However, the news isn’t specific about the cause behind these cases of serious respiratory problems. The headlines of this news are quite disturbing and vague: “a man dies after vaping”…
