Vaping Myth: Inhaling anything other than fresh air is bad
It is pretty common to hear people say that our lungs were not meant to inhale anything but fresh air.
This is actually not even remotely true.
Or lungs are meant to do two things, which they do very well...
--Absorb the oxygen in the air we breathe
--Filter out the other stuff in the air we breathe
You lungs were not only made to inhale things other than fresh air, they were designed specifically to do so.
The REAL question is whether or not you are inhaling things that your lungs can not properly handle.
I'm not saying we either are, or are not doing that when we are vaping...
But the short terms results seem to be that our lungs are handling it just fine for the most part.
And if our lungs can handle it fine, there is no reason to say there is anything inherently wrong with inhaling it just because it isn't fresh air.

"Inhaling anything other than fresh air is bad"
Try telling that to Asthma patients
Dude, most of the american population lives in or near a city. Very few of us have ever breathed fresh air.
Good points. In utero, fetuses "breathe" the amniotic fluid, so there's another example. Oh, and what about deep water SCUBA? They breathe an oxygenated liquid.
Granted, breathing particulate matter can't be "good" for you, but neither is eating processed food. It's a matter of how much your body can filter, and how much stress it puts on your system as to how unhealthy it is.
I'm inclined to agree with you here.
I really enjoy a pure vape !!
I live near the shore in s.e. Florida.. I can come close to pure nirvana with my dripper by the shore and an Easterly breeze...
An excellent point, DC. But we have come to expect no less from you....
There are no men like me. There’s only me.
My ancestors spent thousands and thousands and thousands of years sitting around the old campfire breathing in the fumes and still were able to breed like rats. Not all that gunk was good for them but they still evolved.
I find not inhaling becomes pretty unpleasurable after a time....lol
