To Vape or Not to Vape

Vaping – the practice of smoking using an “electronic cigarette” has been touted as a safe alternative smoking, but is it really?

If you are a current tobacco smoker, the answer is – it’s safer than regular smoking, but it’s not safe.

Studies have confirmed that those who vape are 30% more likely to development chronic lung disease than those who don’t smoke at all. There are also preliminary reports that vaping may present other health problems.

So, the healthiest response would be – not to vape!
