Hey
I was hit with a comment/question at work this week I didnt really have an answer too. One of the guys I work with, who is interested in starting to vape, told me that someone had told him that vaping would cause a person to have water in their lungs, and may lead to to illness like ammonia. Ive just started looking into it..if anyone has an info on this...plz post. Thanks guys

There may be some extra humidity going in but, PG is a dissicant in itself. I don't belive it is an issue.

Any water vapor imposed on the lungs from vaping will be absorbed.

We've talked about this a while back. No real difference as far as we can figure between this and a vaporizer, sauna...when my daughter's asthma kicked up we ran a shower hot and stuffed her in the bathroom, humid days, etc.

While I'm not a doctor I doubt its enough to fill you lungs. I can't give an exact medical responce but vaping has been around almost 5 years now, if this was the case something would have come up by now.

We do know however without a shadow of a doubt the smoking does cause cancer ;)

when i had thought about this on my own, i said; "well if a sauna is fine then this should be".
I'm not sure about the whole "PG is a disinfectant in itself", i know it's used in some of them. that could have to do with more of the effect it has on the skin though. it makes your hands soft because it absorbs water. it's thought that it makes skin soft due to pulling water to the surface of hands when you apply the disinfectant to them.

Here's me being a jerk in another discussion about inhaling PG.

http://www.vaportalk...dpost__p__31815

Bottom line is there were studies done with minimal inhalation to make sure fog machines were okay for actors on Broadway (I think). I think they used to pump it into a children's ward at a hospital and studied how those kids were healthier, talk of pumping it into the air at airports, etc. So I ain't too worried.

I don't have an answer, but I can say - without a doubt - that I breath a whole lot easier now than I did a year ago.
