There is a lot of anti-vaping propaganda that is being spread around by different special interest groups. We are sad to say that most of these rumors are untrue and are usually spread by people who aren’t properly educated on what vaping really is. Below, we disprove 3 lies that you probably have heard about vaping.

由于涉及到不同的利益主体,总有一些反对电子烟的言论在扩散。而令我们难过的是,这些关于电子烟的传言大部分都是不正确的,而且常常是由那些根本不真正了解电子烟是什么的人发出的。下面,我们列举了3个你可能也听说过的传言。

Vaping Is Just as Bad as Smoking

谎言之一:抽电子烟和抽传统香烟给人体带来的危害一样大

There is a big difference between inhaling water vapor versus inhaling carcinogenic smoke directly into your lungs. People buy into this myth simply because the puff of vapor that an e-cig creates looks similar to the cloud of smoke a cigarette makes. Although vaping is designed to simulate the look and feel of smoking a cigarette, this is where the similarities end.

其实,抽电子烟和直接抽含有多种致癌物质的香烟对人身体的影响是有很大不同的。但人们之所以相信这种说法,大概是因为抽电子烟产生的烟雾和抽香烟很相似,也可能是因为电子烟的外观设计给人的感觉和传统香烟很相像。

There are no added carcinogens or chemicals in liquid vapor aside from the added nicotine, vegetable glycerol, and propylene glycol, all of which have been deemed safe for consumption under the FDA. The flavorings used are food grade additives that are designed for consumption. These flavorings are digestible and are added in very small concentrations.

电子烟油中除了含有尼古丁、蔬菜甘油、丙二醇这些被FDA认定为安全的物质外,没有任何其它的致癌物质和化学成分。

Cigarettes, on the other hand, have 1,000’s of chemicals and carcinogens in them. They all enter your body when inhaled and many of them are highly toxic. These are the chemicals that cause cancer, high blood pressure and a variety of other health problems. Liquid vapor does not contain any of these harmful substances.

然而,传统香烟里却含有1000多种化学成分和致癌物质,它们中的大多数是有很大毒性的。这些化学物质可以引起癌症、高血压和其它各种各样的健康问题,而电子烟油中却不含这些有害物质。

The sad truth is many public health organizations are not doing enough to dispel this myth. Filmmaker Aaron Biebert has recently spoken out about this problem in an interview, explaining that the promotion of this kind of misinformation is contributing to millions of lives that have been lost due to cigarettes.

令人悲伤的事实是,很多公共卫生组织却没有做出足够有力的行动去驱散这些传言。电影制作人Aaron Biebert近期在采访中指出了这一问题,并说道这种错误信息的扩散是以数百万沉迷于传统香烟的人的生命为代价的。

Vaping Can’t Replace the Real Thing

谎言之二:电子烟不能取代真实的香烟

An inexperienced vapor may not be aware of the number of options you can use to tweak and customize the taste, look and feel of your e-cig.

一个缺乏经验的电子烟民可能意识不到自己拥有的可以定制自己需要的电子烟口味、外观及感觉等选择的多样性。

Most people are introduced to vaping when they try a standard to-go kit that you can pick up at your local convenience store. Although this is always a better alternative to cigarettes, a bare-bones starter kit isn’t going to give you the best experience.

If you go that route, it’s a safe bet that you won’t be impressed with the experience. You can, however, make a lot of changes to fix that. In fact, most experienced vapers will tell you vaping is more enjoyable to them now than smoking ever was.

You can change the nicotine concentrations to increase or lessen the throat hit that you feel when you inhale. The higher the nicotine level, the harsher it will feel.

你可以通过改变尼古丁的浓度来提高或降低击喉感。尼古丁的浓度越高,击喉感越强烈。

You can change flavors. You will be able to find flavors ranging from fruity flavors to creamy and coffee flavors and anything in between. It’s easy to find specialized flavors like butter pecan, jolly rancher, or whiskey, just to name a few. E-liquid manufacturers will even make menthol and non-menthol cigarette flavors for those that want to get as close to a real cigarette as they can.

从水果、奶油到咖啡或者任意两种口味的混合,你可以选择的电子烟油口味多种多样。为了那些想尽可能接近真烟口味的用户的需求,烟油生产厂家甚至制造出了含薄荷和不含薄荷口味的烟油。

You can change the amount of vapor that each puff produces by changing the different PG/VG levels. If you want a large vapor cloud, use VG. If you want a smaller vapor cloud, use PG e-liquid.
Although it’s not a perfect replication of a cigarette, if offers an alternative that is much better and more diverse.

你也可以通过改变PG/VG的比例来改变你需要的烟雾量。如果你需要大烟雾,用VG;如果你需要小烟雾用PG。虽然它不是香烟的完美复制,但是它提供了更好、更多的选择。

There Is Anti-Freeze in E-Liquids

谎言之三:电子烟液中含有防冻剂

This is a sad attempt by those that are opposed to the vaping movement to attempt to lump vaping in with cigarettes. The idea here is to spread the rumor that e-liquids contain harmful chemicals in the same way that cigarettes do.

这是反电子烟团体试图把电子烟和传统香烟拉入同一阵营的又一悲伤尝试。传言认为电子烟液中包含传统香烟所含有的有害化学物质。

One of the more common chemicals they will mention is anti-freeze. They say anti-freeze is found in propylene glycol (PG) when in fact, it is the complete opposite. While you will find PG in anti-freeze, it is only one of the many ingredients found in the chemical. There is no presence of anti-freeze within PG.

他们最常提到的化学物质是防冻剂。他们认为PG中含有防冻剂,而事实却完全相反。你当然会在防冻剂里发现PG,它仅仅是组成防冻剂的众多化学成分之一,而在PG里面是没有防冻剂的。

Some may conclude that PG is bad for you because it is used to make anti-freeze. Well, that is the same thing as saying water is bad for you because it is found in anti-freeze as well.

还有一些人会说PG对人体有害,因为它是用来制作防冻剂的。好吧,这好比是说水对人体有害,因为在水里也发现了防冻剂。
