+Aura Glasswerks you have a much much bigger chance of getting popcorn lung from smoking cigs than vaping

Popcorn lung is a fucking hoax the chemical Diacetyl that causes it is WAY more prominent in cigarettes

Im curious if the reporter ended up quitting cigarettes? Myself and 4 of my family members quit smoking cigarettes within a day to a month of starting to vape. I also have tens of thousands of facebook twitter instagram and youtube "friends" whove also quit smoking with vaping. I myself tried everything i could find to quit smoking without success. The patches, lozenges, inhalers, medications, hypnosis, acupuncture, counseling, just any and everything i could find multiple times without success. The day i got my 1st vape setup was the last day i smoked cigarettes. Ive been vaping almost 5 years now, ive lost about 20lbs, my high blood pressure is down, i can taste and smell better, i dont smell like smoke anymore nor my clothes car or house, my lungs sound like a non-smoker according to my doctor. Being that this was over a year ago, there has been dozens of studies showing that vaping is much safer than smoking. Is it 100% safe, no, NOTHING in life is 100% safe, but the royal college of physicians, you know that organization that told the fda and cdc back in the 60s that smoking was very bad for us before any other health organization, That royal college of physicians released a over 3 year study showing that vaping is upwards of 95 to 97% safer than smoking. So yeah im just curious if the woman doing the piece ended up vaping or has quit smoking. I know china is a HUGE HUGE HUGE smoking market and very very few people vaped in china even though most of the vaping products are made there.

IDK why everybody is so fascinated by vaping. You're blowing out smoke from a juul, how is that so interesting. It's not as bad as smoking tabacco, but calling it healthy? That's just not true, just sayn'.

Yes. Getting started means no laws on vaping to this day, no age limit whatsoever and that equals to a happy teenager. High school students would love this place because you can buy Juul pods wherever you want.

The doctor in this video is 100% full of shit. Claiming e-cigs and vaping is healthier than tobacco? Organic tobacco free of chemicals and additives is not unhealthy contrary to popular opinions. The naive Americans used various strains of tobacco for centuries and even used it as a health aid for lung congestion. Vape juice contains high levels of toxic metals and artificial ingredients. I’ll take 100% natural tobacco any day over anything artificial.
Chairman Meow (4 months ago)
If you burn anything organic, you will release toxins, carcinogens etc like carbon monoxide to name one. Dont believe that? Retake your chemistry class. Inhalation of fumes, gasses and smokes from combustion has long been an obsolete way of medicating with advancements in science giving way to much more efficient alternatives with fewer health risks. Ingredients in eliquids are vegetable glycerin, propylene glycol, nicotine and food grade flavoring. You can do your research on these ingredients. So far vaping has been proven to be far safer than cigarettes especially on short term. But the truth is, we do not have any studies on the long term effects of vaping since its fairly new. But we can be sure it will not be as grave as tobacco smoking natural or not, because chemistry.
dkieslovski (4 months ago)
it's a poor and superficial documentary! why not speak about the new resources these machines require, ie rare metals that you might only find in China or in Africa?
Kennon Rose (4 months ago)
She seemed to give a pretty accurate summary of vaping. However, I think there’s far more people who use vaping to quit. Vaping can be better than going cold turkey because you can gradually become used to less and less nicotine and even vape without nicotine until the mental cravings go away.
