Popcorn Lung & Vaping-The Truth, The Lies

By on January 18, 2016

If you’ve been watching the news lately, you’ve probably seen the “popcorn lung” controversy everywhere…

what is popcorn lung

Especially when it comes to the media trying to trash the vaping industry…

The first you have to understand is what popcorn lung actually is, where it comes from, and how it “started”…

Essentially,  popcorn lung is an irreversible disease caused by scarring in the lungs that leads to coughing and shortness of breath.

It comes  from a flavoring agent called Diacetyl, which is used in the process of making popcorn…

Apparently, popcorn factory workers were the first to contract the disease from inhaling Diacetyl, hence the name “popcorn lung”.

The Lies About Popcorn Lung

Much of the media outlets covering this topic suggest that this same agent is used in many vapor chemicals.

Fortunately for the vaping community, the media is spewing speculation (which is often times the case) and has no solid evidence that this chemical has anything to do with inhalation of Diacetyl from vaping.

The Truth About Popcorn Lung

But lets take a second to bust that myth wide open, shall we?…

The beauty of organic vapor is that it doesn’t have any Diacetyl in it, which immediately puts holes in the story that the media is pushing…

The other thing that makes this claim questionable is that regular cigarettes have 750 times more Diacetyl in them, and yet the media doesn’t even mention this fact…

Now just because there is no proof (at this point. If this changes, we will update this post :)) doesn’t mean that the chemical doesn’t cause any damage to the lungs.

But you do have another option…

Avoid the chemical altogether by going with an all organic option for vape juice.

Let’s look at it this way…

You can have grass fed beef, or beef full of pesticides…

Fillet mignon sliders from a high end restaurant or McDonalds cheeseburgers…

At the end of the day, it’s merely a matter of preference and whether the risks matter to you or not…

And keep in mind that there are many vape juice suppliers that do not have diacetyl, and it’s important to understand the difference in quality! Self education is always key to finding out about which vape liquid is going to be the best choice for you!

“Spinning” The Popcorn Lung Problem

The truth is there’s a lot of companies out there that do not sell quality vape products.

And even with the poor quality products that are flooding the market, there’s a consensus that vaping is a smarter choice and alternative to traditional cigarettes…

And from a social perspective, you’re not poisoning your friends and family (or even strangers) to the toxic second hand smoke coming from traditional cigarettes.

It’s always funny how many critics there are that say people who vape are putting harmful chemicals in their body, but yet can turn around and eat something so packed with sugar and preservatives, then chase it with an entire pack of Marlboro’s…

Not buying it…

And even with vaping being a less “toxic” alternative to cigarettes, using an organic e liquid, especially when trying to avoid crazy diseases like popcorn lung, is the absolute BEST choice as a vape…

“I’d rather people vaped indoors than smoked outside.”~Anonymous

Lets face it, opinions are like…

And everyone has one…

Vapers get criticized because the industry keeps growing and those same critics are trying to make “Smoking” the same as “Vaping” and it’s not!

Popcorn Lung: The “Risk” Factors On Vaping vs Cigarettes

Critics want to address one known agent that may be harmful to the body, meanwhile traditional cigarettes 3,500+ harmful chemicals!!

What those critics won’t tell you is that Vegetable Glycerin (VG) is 100% plant based, all natural, and is FDA approved. (What else could you ask for??)

The Vape flavors contain natural flavors with ZERO artificial ingredients…

The news wants to scare us about popcorn lung, and they try their best to link it to Vaping, but what they aren’t focusing on is the harsh effects of cigarettes and what they contain!

So people are okay with putting Arsenic and Ethanol into their bodies, but they are NOT comfortable with Vegetable Oil?!?!

If you asked me, I would say that I am much more comfortable with a plant based option as opposed to RAT POISON…talk about a “Popcorn Lung” thats the ultimate form of body detonation!

So many people have opinions on what they don’t know OR what they haven’t truly researched for themselves. Know the facts, so that you’re not jaded to everything that you tune into on the news.
