For most vapers and potential vapers, the big question that needs answer has to do with – is vaping safe? Before examining this question and providing answers to the safety or otherwise of vaping, it is important to understand what vaping is all about.
Vaping is a bit more complex than the conventional smoking where all you need is dried shredded tobacco that is folded in a paper tube, and a lighter to set it on fire from one end while you inhale the smoke from the other end of the tube. With vaping, you require a vaping device, which heats up a volatile e-liquid in a cartridge. You then inhale the vapor that is produced from the liquid. So since you don't inhale 'smoke' when vaping, are vapes safe then?
