Vaping Risks – What Vaping Can Do to Your Mouth

For those of you who don’t know IQOS is the newest device for smoking cessation. It has been cleared by the FDA for sale in the United States for summer of 2019.

#IQOS uses heetsticks to heat tobacco to 350°C, without combustion or smoke. Because the tobacco is not burned, the amount of harmful chemicals are significantly reduced compared to traditional cigarettes.

The aerosol produced by the IQOS Tobacco Heating System contains fewer toxic chemicals than cigarette smoke, and many of the toxins identified are present at lower levels than in #cigarette smoke. For example, the carbon monoxide exposure from IQOS aerosol is comparable to environmental exposure, and levels of acrolein and formaldehyde are 89% to 95% and 66% to 91% lower than from combustible cigarettes, respectively.


As for vaping, studies conducted by the Royal College of Physicians that show that e-cigarettes available today are unlikely to exceed 5% of the harm from #smoking tobacco.


Also, there is a new study as of January 2019 conducted by the New England Journal of Medicine. The study shows that for people trying to quit tobacco, switching to e-cigarettes was nearly TWICE as effective as using other forms of Nicotine Replacement Therapy.


The rise of teens smoking e-cigarettes has been alarming, especially because many of these kids are not using their vapes to quit smoking tobacco, they are following a trend.


We all know that smoking is not good for you. However, if you are trying to quit smoking cigarettes vaping or IQOS can be a much healthier option for those people.

Warning: All of these products contain nicotine. Nicotine is an addictive chemical.

  1. I quit juuling about 5 months ago, now I feel the need to smoke an occasional cigarette. I’m not sure what’s better…. having a juul in your back pocket that you smoke constantly, or having a pack of cigarettes that lasts you over a month. Thoughts?

  2. Which option has no secondhand smoke? My mom smokes and she just recently used IQOS but I'm not too good about it because I have asthma and my chest hurts and I have difficulty breathing whenever she smokes or uses the IQOS. Does vape show any sign if secondhand smoke? My bf's cousins vape a lot and I have never experienced anything negative when they do.

  3. There is 5x more nicotine in a juul pod/ e-cig than your traditional cigarette. To clarify. 1 pod is about 200 puffs= 20 cigarettes 🚬

  4. Real question, I don't smoke a lot, something like 1 cigarette every 1 or 2 days, but I like it, I'm not addicted, I've had months pass by without a smoke, so, do you recommend the Iqos, I found about them by my boss, saw him with that done time ago, just asked about it, sorry if my English is bad.

  5. I purchased an IQOS and the Heets last fall. It HAS helped with cutting strongly "back" on smoking cigars (down from 10 to 2 a day), however the three "flavours" available in my area are really not pleasant and I find the Heet vapour burns my mouth after time. So now I'll try vaping and see if that will help get me off smoking cigars and Heets ;). There is one additional benefit of vaping over IQOS that I can see, and that's the ability to choose the nicotine level in the vape juice. My intention is to reduce that level of nicotine over time, then do the push to stop the "habit". Wish me luck folks! 🙂 PS: SInce Heets don't "burn off" like cigarettes, you may actually get more nicotine out of one Heet as compared to one cigarette, and I found I smoke a Heet much faster since it's only a short burn time (about 3 min) compared to a cigarette/cigar which may sit in my ashtray as I do other things. Might be why my mouth feels burned as well.
