Chemicals of Vaping and Smoking

Posted by zuaibh malik on

Cigarette smoke contains over 4,000 chemicals, including 43 known cancer-causing (carcinogenic) compounds and 400 other toxins.

Keep in mind the list goes even further


  • Ammonia: Household cleaner
  • Angelica root extract: Known to cause cancer in animals
  • Arsenic: Used in rat poisons
  • Benzene: Used in making dyes, synthetic rubber
  • Butane: Gas; used in lighter fluid
  • Carbon monoxide: Poisonous gas
  • Cadmium: Used in batteries
  • Cyanide: Deadly poison
  • DDT: A banned insecticide
  • Ethyl Furoate: Causes liver damage in animals
  • Lead: Poisonous in high doses
  • Formaldehyde: Used to preserve dead specimens
  • Methoprene: Insecticide
  • Megastigmatrienone: Chemical naturally found in grapefruit juice
  • Maltitol: Sweetener for diabetics
  • List of additives in cigarettes
  • There are only four main ingredients in every bottle of e-juice.

    Glycerin: Found naturally in vegetables
    Propylene Glycol: Used commonly in asthma inhalers
    Nicotine: A stimulant
    Food Grade Flavoring: Used in many foods

  • Vaping is a much safer and healthier alternative to traditional smoking, in our opinion. When it comes to long term effects, it is worth mentioning that e-cigs have not been around long enough for us to make conclusions. However, we do know for a fact that about half of the people that smoke analog cigarettes will die directly due to smoking.
