  • Public Health England's E-Cig Review Estimates E-Cigarettes To Be At Least 95% Less Harmful Than Smoking

    Public Health England (PHE) recently released the results of their latest independent e-cigarette evidence review, in which leading experts independently examined the available scientific data pertaining to the potential health benefits and risks of vaping with electronic cigarettes as well as the public's perception of these benefits and risks.

    There’s a lot of information to sift through, but fortunately we're here to break it all down for you. Without further hesitation, let’s take a look at the information so that we can better understand the facts as they pertain to vaping, the public's perception of these facts, where they coincide, and where they differ.

    PHE’s Vape Findings

    A study from Public Health England conducted in 2015 brings many facts about vaping into the public eye. One of the biggest claims is that vaping is likely 95% less harmful than smoking and that it poses very little risk to bystanders. In other words, according to their research, vaping is likely far less harmful than smoking, for both you and everyone around you.

    Professor John Newton, Director for Health Improvement at PHE said in regards to their latest evidence review, which was published earlier this year, "Our new review reinforces the finding that vaping is a fraction of the risk of smoking, at least 95% less harmful, and of negligible risk to bystanders. Yet over half of smokers either falsely believe that vaping is as harmful as smoking or just don’t know."

    This study even finds that those who switch from smoking to vaping are likely to experience substantial health benefits. If you smoke and want to stop, we have some of the most luxurious e-cigs on the market at Vaper Empire and they're all designed to be easy to use, making it simple to switch from smoker vaper, so take a look at our selection if you're ready to make the switch. We also offer some of the best-tasting e-liquids that you’ll find online.

    This study also finds that e-cigarettes could have potentially led to over 20,000 people kicking the smoking habit in 2018 alone. That’s a lot of progress in only one year. Similarly, this study associates the rise of vaping popularity with improved successful quit rates and a big drop in smoking rates across the United Kingdom.

    Public Health England’s latest report doesn’t support the notion that vaping is a gateway to smoking for youth, and it reinforces the fact that vaping is likely 95% less harmful than smoking. As the popularity of vaping increases, we’ve seen a steady decline in smoking among minors. Furthermore, regular smoking is extremely rare among today's youths and it’s almost entirely confined to those that were already smoking.

    The Public Perception of Vaping

    Public Health England researched a lot of analytical data in order to accurately depict the known effects of vaping on society. They also went out of their way to see just what society thinks about vaping. Sadly, there’s a lot of misinformation being propagated by those that have been ill-informed or that simply don’t know. We’re here to set the record straight.

    PHE’s study states that more than half of the population (44.8%) doesn’t know that vaping is likely far less harmful than smoking. According to Public Health England’s findings, vaping is likely 95% less harmful than smoking, but most people seem to have missed the memo. Furthermore, this study finds that 40% of smokers haven’t given e-cigs a chance.

    It seems that many believe vaping to be as harmful as smoking. Many believe nicotine to be the culprit behind the health risks that come with smoking, and because many e-liquids contain nicotine, they associate this risk with vaping as well. Less than 10% of adults understand that the majority of the risk associated with cigarettes is not due to nicotine.

    According to PHE’s research, nicotine has very little to do with these health risks. The risk is primarily in the smoke itself, which carries 70 different chemicals that are known to cause cancer. Nicotine is just one of the many ingredients found in cigarette smoke, and it carries a relatively low risk, especially when compared to the rest of what’s found in cigarette smoke.

    Conclusion

    Modern science constantly sheds light on the unknown. Vaping, while once a very niche topic, is becoming more approachable due to research like this. According to Public Health England, it’s likely a less harmful alternative to smoking that has the potential to help smokers quit.

    The only apparent downside in the study is the public’s exposed perception of vaping. It seems that there’s a lot of misinformation circulating in regards to vaping. It’ll be interesting to see how the public’s perception of vaping evolves over the next several years. For all the best e-cigs and e-liquids available, be sure to visit the Vaper Empire store.

  • Why Healthcare Startups Are So Hot Right Now

    In the age of the Internet and social media, entrepreneurship may seem more appealing than ever to many people looking to get their footing in the world of small business. However, starting a business, like any worthwhile venture, is not without its share of risk. Any aspiring small business owner has surely heard that about 90 percent of startups end in failure. While this may make it seem like failure is nearly inevitable when it comes to the world of startups, that’s not true. Healthcare startups have the most potential to bring innovative solutions to a wide variety of individuals and make a real impact on people’s lives, securing a reliable market and ensuring their longevity as businesses.

    The average failure rate for companies after five years is 50 percent. After ten years, the rate increases to 70 percent, with failure rates varying by industry. Information, construction, manufacturing, mining, and services startups all have higher failure rates than businesses started in the agriculture, health, education, finance, insurance, and real estate industries. Information startups have the highest failure rates at 63 percent, followed by construction startups at 53 percent, manufacturing startups at 51 percent, mining at 49 percent and services at 45 percent. Healthcare, education and agriculture are tied, with new businesses failing at a rate of 44 percent, and are only bested by finance and real estate, which are also tied with startup failure rates of 42 percent.

    Presently, venture capitalists are betting billions of dollars on healthcare tech startups because they are well aware of the expansive potential that comes with this kind of business. The healthcare industry is made up of an extensive and varied network of stakeholders including institutions, patients, providers, customers and administrators. As advancements in modern medicine race to catch up with the needs of patients, there will always be an opening in healthcare for innovative solutions and technology.

    Healthcare related startups like Vaper Empire ensure long term success by offering a solution to the local need for high quality vaping options. Vaper Empire’s premium vaping products give individuals who want switch to the tobacco-free alternative of vaping an easy and sophisticated way to do that. By providing customers with quality products like the V-Pack II series at reasonable prices and with fast and reliable shipping, Vaper Empire is making a positive impact on individuals’ lives. This is what sets healthcare startups apart from all the others.

  • How To Avoid Buying Fake E-Juice

    With the rise of vaping has come fake e-liquids, which contain ingredients or concentrations of ingredients that simply do not match their labels -- potentially placing vapers at risk.

    In some instances, fake e-juices have been found to contain either more or less nicotine than what's purported on their label. In order to thwart these fraudsters, at least one group of researchers is working on a handheld scanner that would provide a chemical fingerprint of the e-liquid, allowing for a determination to be made on whether the ingredients contained within the liquid match those of the label. Now while this technology is reportedly in the works, that still leaves consumers with a valid concern: how does one determine whether they're buying real or fake e-juice?

    One solution is to shop only at trusted stores, such as here at Vaper Empire. At Vaper Empire, all of our vape juice is manufactured from the finest ingredients and strictly pharmaceutical-grade nicotine. On top of all this, it's all made in a multimillion-dollar manufacturing facility located in the United Kingdom. And it's all lab tested in order to ensure compliance with European Union TPD standards, which ensures that each and every bottle of Vaper Empire brand e-juice meets the high standards that we hold our products to. In other words, you can trust our juice.

    3. How does vaping work?

    You ought to be prepped to explain the inner workings of a device to a complete novice, as many people will be curious about how it all works. 

    4. What are you exhaling?

    A lot of people might be wondering how you’re producing those clouds of vapour.

    5. Is their nicotine in that?

    Whether you vape nicotine or not, many people will be curious about whether or not your e-liquid contains nicotine or not. 

    6. Why does it smell so good?

  • Two biggest vaping myths busted

    If you're new to the vaping industry - you might already have swallowed up some of the misinformation out there. You're not alone. As a relatively new technology, it's natural for there to be a few myths floating around, and if you haven't really looked into vaping much already - you might already believe some of them. In this article, we're going to look at two of the biggest myths about vaping, so you can separate fact from fiction.

    "Vaping and E-cigarettes are the same"

    This simply isn't the case. While they obviously occupy a similar section of the tech market, they're actually aimed at completely different types of people. E-cigarettes are made to look like traditional cigarettes and are aimed specifically at the "quitting smoking" niche.

    While the jury is still out on exactly how much healthier they are, it's generally accepted by most that they're a less dangerous way to ease yourself off of traditional tobacco. After all, they don't have any tobacco but they do have nicotine in them if you choose to vape with anything above 0MG.

    Alternatively, vaping has almost created a market by itself. While they might have originally started in a similar area as e-cigarettes (for quitting smoking) - there are now large modding communities that take vaping very seriously and will continue to do so. There are all sorts of different flavours and ways to modify different units. People create videos and share the different contraptions that they've put together. Some of it is high tech, and impressive - and it's far fly from those "basic" e-cigarette units.

    "They're expensive"

    Here's another big myth. People see the up-front cost of some vaping units and don't think any deeper about it. Yes - the up-front cost of most vape pens is higher than a pack of cigarettes (although this is starting to change as tobacco becomes more expensive).

    The important thing to remember is that they're highly re-usable. Once you've finished with a pack of cigarettes, you're done - but not with vape units. These can be re-filled and re-used for years, meaning you actually save a ton compared to traditional cigarettes over the long-run. Even that vape unit could quickly pay for itself compared to buying a pack of cigarettes every day. When you look at it like this, you'll realise how cheap vaping is in comparison.

    Hopefully, we've now busted two of the key myths in the vaping industry.

  • Editor's choice: spring e-liquid flavours

    Keen on finding that perfect springtime flavour? While our flavours are all epic all year round, we find these flavours particularly delectable in Spring.

    SPRING IN SIBERIA

    How could we leave this one off of the list? A menthol and mint blend that is perfectly refreshing and ideal for springtime. Brodie said that "This is a great liquid and if you have multiple tanks I'd say a must have in your rotation. Really clears the palate and leaves a fresh taste behind. Smells like Allen's Minties and I love it."

    A smooth blend of bilberry, kiwi, and pear. Perfectly fruity and so much like a perfect springtime fruit salad. One customer said "The cactus flavor is very unique, it's unusual but goes down nicely and smells amazing! Maybe not my all day vape but definitely nice for something different."
    Crisp, sweet and with a hint of tartness, our Apple E-liquid tastes like it was just plucked from the tree. Jackie said "A refreshing apple taste, not too sweet or overpowering. Nice and smooth. I really enjoy this one."
    A classically tropical taste sensation, Vaper Empire’s Coconut E-liquid brings the flavour of Far North Queensland to your vapouriser. "This flavour depicts the true entirety of the coconut. Breathed out through the nose you will have the sensation of smelling the textured brown outer layer of the coconut whilst breathed in through the mouth you will taste the sweet and nutty inner layers with a tinge of the leafy green stem. This is my review of Vaper Empires coconut flavour, in a nutshell it is amazing. I'd also like to add that I have shopped around and these flavours are second to NONE with their quality and truth to taste."
    Vanilla custard with caramel. The sweet but perfect blend of sweet flavours is ideal for an after dinner treat. "My favourite flavour and I have tried 6 of the Classics and 6 of the Artisan. This one is the go to, smooth and delicious and smells great!" - Mark.
