I like to use the old adage of “You’re more likely to die on the car ride to the airport than you are of dying in a plane crash”...are either modes of transportation 100% safe? Nope! But is there one that is statistically safer than the other? Yep! Like the poster above, there are studies and numbers and statistics and opinions that I don’t have the energy to go searching through, but another thing that it seems the anti-vaping folks like to throw around is how we truly don’t know the extent of the long term damage that vaping can cause as opposed to smoking, as vaping hasn’t been around long enough for there to be concrete facts on that. But, you can counter that by simply asking someone stating those things if they use a cell phone...because the technology used nowadays for cell phones is still pretty new if you want to look at things in the viewpoint of if it can cause long-term damage. For all we know, 50 years down the road they may discover we have been slowly melting our brains or causing some sort of damage to our dna because of so much cell phone use...but does that possibility of something bad being discovered 50 years down the road going to make you toss your cell and go back to a landline or even possibly a rotary landline (because wireless phones might possibly be causing us to go sterile after 75 years of use)? I very much doubt you’ll get anyone to engage you in any debate after that because of this pesky thing called “logic” that seems to be lacking in the folks that say vaping is just as dangerous as smoking. So...if you’re thinking of giving up vaping and going back to smoking because if both are potentially bad, you might as well go with smoking...that’s your choice...but then you’d have to give up riding on planes, because if you can die from a plane crash the same as you can from a car crash, why bother stepping on the plane even if the odds of dying on the plane are one-in-eleven million as opposed to the one-in-five thousand odds of dying in a car crash?
