There is no smoke without fire, and personal vaporizers do not produce smoke. They produce a harmless VAPOR.
But there are still people who think e-cig users are blowing out smoke, and how there can be smoke without lighting something up.
What too many people haven’t gotten a grasp on yet is that there is no smoke with electronic cigarettes, or what I prefer to call them, personal vaporizers. These miniature personal vaporizers don’t “smoke.” Users of them don’t smoke either. We Vape.
Below is an interesting article with some statistics about personal vaporizers that I thought my audience may find very interesting. It’s reprinted here with permission by Accelerated-Nursing.net.
