It isn’t easy to quit a vice, so most people wean themselves off slowly or find alternatives to their habit. Many drinkers find solace in caffeine while more and more smokers have been utilizing vaping as their nicotine replacement therapy. But how safe is vaping? Are there any negative side effects or illnesses that should be of concern? For years vapers were concerned about contracting bronchiolitis obliterans – more commonly known as “popcorn lung.” But after extensive research, vapers can breathe a sigh of relief.

What is Popcorn Lung?

Popcorn lung (bronchiolitis obliterans) is a respiratory condition in which air sacs in the lungs become scarred. It is serious and irreversible. The disease results in a persistent cough and shortness of breath. In 2000, the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) reported several cases of popcorn lung in workers in a popcorn factory in Missouri. NIOSH (National Institute of Occupation Safety and Health) concluded that a chemical used to add the buttery flavoring to the popcorn (diacetyl) most likely contributed to the workers’ illness when they inhaled it.

Diacetyl and E-liquid

A study conducted by researchers at the Harvard School of Public Health found that the Diacetyl in e-cigarettes is linked to certain lung diseases, mainly popcorn lung. The group noted that more than three-quarters of flavored e-cigarettes and e-liquids contained the chemical. However, that statistic is both A) outdated, as e-liquid companies have removed Diacetyl from their ingredients and B) misleading, seeing as how there was never a direct correlation between the chemical in the e-liquid and anyone contracting the illness. To date, there have been no proven cases of anyone getting popcorn lung from vaping.

Guidelines and Regulations

Now that vaping is regulated like tobacco, there are stringent guidelines and regulations by the TPD(Tobacco Products Directive – all EU countries) to which companies must adhere. Each product needs to meet basic standards before they can be released on the market. Major e-liquid companies like Element E-Liquid continues to remain in good standing, producing quality vaping products.

Hi guys

I am in the midst of starting up my very own little vape shop in Kent and wanted to reach out to you to ask you for some advice as it looks like you have a pretty successful vape business going.

Firstly, I would like to know how to select the best e-liquid wholesaler with a very good e-liquid range. Do let me know if you sell wholesale and if so, it would be great if you could send me across your price list.

I am planning of making my own e-liquid brand and was wondering what is the best way to promote it? I have already purchased an email list of all vape shops and companies as a whole for my newsletter marketing from

I am also getting a vape SEO company to help me with the website creation.

What else would you recommend I do to make my vape shop a success?

I really appreciate your time and look forward to hearing from you.

Kind regards
