Vaping vs Smoking

Nowadays, people are paying more attention to the impact vaping will have on their life. The intention to provide alternatives to those smokers who are struggling to change their old habits, the aim of vaping is to release fewer chemical substances but mimic the experience the smokers can get from traditional tobacco. 

VAPORESSO, as leadership in the vaping industry, always strives to popular the related knowledge to the public. Recently, some pieces of negative news against vaping have risen globally. To erase the misunderstandings and panic caused by those pieces of news, VAPORESSO has put together some facts to explain the specific differences between vaping and smoking.


Although research on vaping hasn’t been carried out for very long, the existing studies from the authorities have shown that vaping is 95% safer than cigarettes, one of the critical reasons why is that vaping doesn't require any combustion.

During the process of burning tobacco, it will release thousands of chemical substances, and more than 20 of them are carcinogens, which include Arsenic, Benzene, Cadmium, Carbon Monoxide, Ethylene oxide, Formaldehyde, Lead, Nickel, Nicotine, and Nitrosamines.

Regarding vaping, the chemical substances that have been detected in vaping are mainly Acetaldehyde, Nicotine, Nitrosamines, Propylene Glycol, and Vegetable Glycerin. Nicotine is an addictive substance that gives the feeling of smoking, its concentration within e-juice can be different according to personal preference, and the lowest concertation is zero.


For smokers, especially smokers with a larger addiction, they usually incur other downsides to smoking, such as having their teeth and face yellowed, causing bad breath and cigarettes smells from the fingers.

For vapers, what they will get from vaping doesn’t include tar, which is a leading factor to yellow teeth. Also, vaping from the flavored e-juice will not leave any strange smell, as long as the e-juice is from regular channels.


Another big problem with smoking is second-hand smoke, which can also have a severe impact on people nearby.

Vaping doesn't release any irritating substance that could cause disturbance to the people around.

Even though the results of the research are limited due to how new the vaping industry is, it’s evident that the difference between vaping and smoking can make a significant change in people’s daily life, which is why the influence of vaping in today's society is increasing.
