No Health Concerns in E-Cig Vapor!

One of the most common questions I’ve been asked recently about ecigs is about the safety of the vapor. Without the FDA’s approval, some people, my wife included, are concerned about the long term effects of ecig vapor. I can understand the concern, but for me, we know regular cigs are bad… vapor couldn’t be worse… right? Right!

According to an August 2013 study conducted by the School of Public Health at Drexel University, ecig vapor is just fine.

By reviewing over 9,000 observations about the chemistry of the vapor and the liquid in e-cigarettes, Dr. Burstyn was able to determine that the levels of contaminants e-cigarette users are exposed to are insignificant, far below levels that would pose any health risk. Additionally, there is no health risk to bystanders. Proposals to ban e-cigarettes in places where smoking is banned have been based on concern there is a potential risk to bystanders, but the study shows there is no concern.
