Myth 1: Electronic cigarettes are dangerous because they contain nicotine, which is bad for your health.
Fact : This is plain nonsense. Though nicotine is highly addictive, the effects on the human body are very small. Traditional cigarettes contain many more toxins that are harmful to the human body.
Myth 2: Electronic cigarettes could be dangerous because nobody knows the ingredients.
Fact: This is simply not true, as long as you choose a company that is open and honest about what they do, they should disclose a full ingredient list.
Myth 3: These devices can explode in your hands or face.
Fact: This is false, as long as you don’t mess around with the liquids or the actual device and disregard the instructions. Learn as much as you can beforehand, and you will find these devices will never explode.
Myth 4: The cost of electronic cigarettes is very high.
Fact: This depends on the vendor. Iciga.co.uk has great offers and discount on prices. Overall, electronic cigarettes are cheaper in the long run than tobacco cigarettes.
Myth 5: These devices cause cancer.
Fact: There is research to totally dispel this myth. Electronic cigarettes do not contain harmful chemical likes tar and tobacco, which are carcinogens.
Myth 6: Electronic cigarettes are more addictive.
Fact: The nicotine in an electronic cigarette is no more addictive than nicotine in regular cigarettes.
Myth 7: Second hand ‘vapour’ from electronic cigarettes is just like second-hand smoke.
Fact: Vapour is just that, vapour. Vapour does not contain smoke or tobacco by-products, and does not leave any lingering odours.
Myth 11: Electronic cigarette companies are luring in non-smokers
Fact: Smart electronic cigarette companies don’t have to, as there is no proof of an increase in smoking due to these devices.
Myth 12: Anti freeze is used in electronic cigarettes.
Fact: Anti freeze contains many highly toxic ingredients. PPG is a very safe and human-friendly ingredient used in antifreeze, but is in no way a toxic ingredient. It just happens that it’s used in antifreeze, just like water.
Myth 13: Minors are able to buy electronic cigarettes
Fact: Minors are not allowed to purchase these products. Most companies have an 18+ policy in place.
