So, how do we know that vaping is a less harmful alternative to smoking?
Take me, for example. I'm in my late thirties and I've been vaping since 2014. How do I feel after 4 years without a single cigarette? I feel absolutely great! So do most of my vaping buddies, now members of the TopSixDeals team.
I had been smoking for 25 years, 2 packs a day on average! When I managed to quit smoking and transition to vaping, I did a huge favor to myself, my wife, my kids, and the whole society! I also made a lot of friends and vaping has become a wonderful hobby for all of us and we started helping others, too!
But today, oh boy... The vape market has exploded and there is so much new gear appearing daily, from affordable vape starter kits to the best DNA mods.
The TopSixDeals team feels that novice vapers probably find choosing the right vape gear overwhelming. More importantly, if you are considering quitting smoking and switching to e- cigarettes, you are probably asking yourself - how safe is vaping?
Well, several studies have been published in order to compare and contrast the health risks of vaping vs smoking. Let's start with the basic information.

How about the health aspect and benefits of vaping? Here are a few things to have in mind!
As we all know, the burning process of smoking traditional tobacco cigarettes releases 4,000+ chemicals, at least about two dozens of which have been proven to be carcinogenic.
The chemicals in traditional cigarettes
The worst to make our list are Formaldehyde, Hydrogen Cyanide, Arsenic, Lead, Benzene, Ammonia, and Nitrosamines. Scared shitless of these poisons? Well, you should be!
We did not list nicotine above as it is NOT proven to be carcinogenic but it is harmful due to its addictive properties. It also acts as a vasoconstrictor, which is also a cause for concern but not as much as the other nasty chemicals which are added to traditional cigarettes or appear as a result of tobacco and paper burning.
The researches on the correlation of smoking and the resulting serious diseases such as various types of cancer, lung and heart disorders as well as the stroke have been long known and the undisputed truth is - SMOKING KILLS!
What chemicals do vape juices contain?
Propylene Glycol, Vegetable Glycerol, Flavorings (ingredients often not known) and Nicotine.
Nothing healthy here, either, but at least the list is way shorter and less scary.
