Vaping VS. Smoking: Is there a difference?


The Reality Intercepted podcast was joined by Rico, who is a leader at SpitFireHipHop.com, and he gave his opinion on smoking and vaping. He believes that vaping is the same thing as smoking and you’re still getting the nicotine while Jae believes that if you’re vaping, you’re not smoking.

Many people have quit smoking and turned to vaping instead. While this is a great way to quit smoking and avoid the smell of smoke, there are still establishments such as restaurants that do not allow vaping.

Smoking is the combustion of tobacco which includes thousands of chemicals and 20 of them have strong cancer-causing connections. Some of the chemicals include nicotine, hydrogen cyanide, formaldehyde, and arsenic. Many of these chemicals are linked to serious health conditions such as heart disease, cancer, and lung disease. With vaping, there’s no need to combust anything and this removes a handful of chemicals that were previously mentioned.

There are studies that suggest that there is a considerable difference between the number of carcinogens found in comparison to cigarette smoke. Some of the chemicals that are found in vapor are nicotine, propylene glycol (vegetable oil), vegetable glycerol, acetaldehyde, and nitrosamines. The other chemicals that are in vapor are associated with the flavoring process. Most of the chemicals are found to be food grade and are generally safe for consumption.

In comparison to smoking, there are studies that suggest that vaping has considerably lower risks to health and safety.
