Study: Vaping Does Not Stain Your Teeth

Image
A recent study published in the American Journal of Dentistry suggests some pretty incredible findings. While we know the negative effects of cigarettes on your health, we haven't had many opportunities to truly compare how cigarettes affect your health vs. e-cigarettes and vape juice. This study provides us a small glimpse into the effect of cigarettes and vapor products on your dental health; something that should be of paramount concern to anyone who is a current or former smoker.

While it's no fun to go to the dentist, it's actually very important. Your mouth is not only the place you put your food for sustenance, it's also the place in your body that's most exposed to germs and other bacteria. If you want to be healthy, keep your mouth healthy. That's not a saying, it's just the truth. This is why it's recommended that you brush twice a day and floss and use mouthwash. Not just to have a great smile, but to actually promote health and wellness in t…

How do I get started Vaping?

Image
Vaping truly is a one-of-a-kind technology. If you look at the history of technology and how it's evolved, you'll see solutions to problems everywhere; that's what's made technology so valuable to our society. Vaping and vape juice absolutely fit in this category of tech, but the major difference is this: Vaping is one of the few pieces of technology deliberately designed as a means of saving consumers from the "non-tech" alternative option.

There are other technologies that fit in this category as well. Driving assistance technology in new cars is a great example. It's safer to allow the vehicle to navigate a dangerous patch of road than it is to navigate it yourself, especially if it's an unknown scenario. Another example would be Bluetooth connections and hands-free connections in cars. More accidents are caused by distractions than anything else, and car accidents are one of the leading causes of death in the United States. How do you solve this …

Vaping vs. Cigarettes: Are we still talking about this?

Image
It's been what, a decade, since vaping has been under scrutiny by the government, special interest groups, and pharmaceutical companies? Pretty darn close. Whether it's batteries, vape juice, nicotine, or flavoring, it seems there's always something to point the proverbial finger at as a reason to stay away from vaping. However, the lack of consistency, the lack of claims that actually "stick", and most importantly - the antagonistic reporting on this method of nicotine replacement, have all seemingly forgotten one thing: Cigarettes are the problem here. It's cigarettes that got these adults addicted to nicotine and nearly 4,000 other chemicals, likely for decades. It's cigarettes that are behind the deaths of over 5 million people each year around the world. It's cigarettes that caused lifelong diseases for more than 16 million Americans. While the Royal College of Physicians study from 2016 points to e-cigarettes being 95% safer than cigarettes, he…

Is there really an 'epidemic' of teen vaping?

Image
The Commissioner of the FDA, Scott Gottlieb, recently released a statement regarding the 'epidemic' of teen vaping that's taking place in the United States. Some of the statement included comments on advertising, while some were on vape juice. While the message depicts a dismal, frightening landscape of teenagers vaping everywhere from schools to bedrooms, the numbers don't necessarily agree with the claims. In agreement with the FDA, we also want teen vaping to decline. However, to call the current levels an 'epidemic' is somewhat misleading. Let's dig into the data and see where it leads.

First and foremost, we need to be clear about the definition of the word Epidemic. We are, after all, discussing whether or not teen vaping is at epidemic levels. An Epidemic is defined by Webster's Dictionary as: "affecting or tending to affect a disproportionately large number of individuals within a population, community, or region at the same time", wh…

Alex's Top 5 Favorite Vape Juices!

Image
Ever wonder what the employees at VistaVapors choose for their vape juice? Which flavors they think are the best on our site? If so, today's blog should be one you enjoy! We're going to cover Alex's Top 5 Favorite Vape Juices at VistaVapors! Enjoy, and give them a try! Here's what he had to say:

5. Mud Bath from the Dirty Pig Line - Are you a fan of Caramel Apples? How about Cotton Candy? What about together?! That's essentially what Mud Bath is, actually! I'm a huge fan of both of those flavors, but I guess I'd never imagined what they might taste like together until I tried Mud Bath for the first time. It's pretty sweet, which is the only reason it's not my "#1" flavor of all time. I can usually vape a full 30ml of it before I'm interested in switching to one of my ADV's, but seriously, this flavor is so good. It's a really nice "candy" flavor that I think anyone would enjoy, if not LOVE!

4. Sour Grapes from the Suc…

BEST TANKS OF 2018!

Image
Today's blog is all about sub-ohm tanks; here at VistaVapors, we love ourselves some sub-ohm tanks! Our passion for making high-quality and flavorful vape juice was made even more passionate by the evolution of sub-ohm tanks, and today, we can't wait to share with you what we think are the best sub-ohm tanks of 2018! We'll start with Number 3 and work our way to Number 1!

Number 3: eLeaf ELLO Vate Tank
This tank arrives on the eLeaf iStick Pico S kit, and is a cloud producing machine! One of the major positives of this tank is the fact that it holds around 6.5ml of vape juice, which is a dream for people who don't look forward to filling their tank. Another plus is the fill-method; featuring a "slide-to-open" top cap, something that's becoming a staple in tank designs, you'll be able to easily open the tank, fill it up, and close it without worrying about spilling juice while you're at it. On top of that, the flavor quality in this tank is, well, a…

CDC Study: Evaluation of Chemical Exposures at a Vape Shop

Image
In a study produced by the CDC and U.S. Department of Health and Human Services titled, "Evaluation of Chemical Exposures at a Vape Shop", in 2017, the DHHS and CDC studied the volume of airborne chemicals in a vape shop after employees and customers used vape juice in the store. What they found is very promising for the vaping industry, and proves (again!) the value of unbiased research over outside-funded studies meant to prompt public unrest. Let's dive into the study and see what we learned, shall we?



According to the highlights of the study provided in the write-up, the focus of the study was to evaluate the air quality in a particular vape shop for many of the chemicals as-named by the mainstream media and anti-vaping groups. What they found was really important for vapers and their health; a negligible quantity of each chemical was reported in the air, or, a "below occupational exposure limits" amount, which means two things: 1. Vaping still isn't 10…
