Are cigars worse than vaping?

I am not sure; both cigars and vaping carry significant health risks, though they differ in nature.

  1. Substance Composition: Cigars contain tobacco, which has known carcinogens, particularly when burned. Vaping liquids can vary in composition, but they generally contain nicotine, flavorings, and other chemicals. The long-term health effects of many vaping substances are still being studied.
  2. Inhalation Method: Cigar smoke is typically not inhaled deeply into the lungs, whereas vaping often involves deep lung inhalation, which can introduce substances directly into the lungs.
  3. Chemical Exposure: Burning tobacco in cigars produces a range of harmful chemicals. Vaping may expose users to fewer toxicants than smoking cigars, but it is not without risks, including potential lung injury from some vaping substances.
  4. Addiction Potential: Both cigars and vaping can be addictive due to the presence of nicotine.
  5. Health Risks: Both have health risks, but they differ in nature. Cigars have a strong association with cancers, particularly oral cancers, while vaping, especially with certain substances, has been linked to lung injuries and respiratory issues.
  6. Regulation and Quality Control: There is more established information about the risks of tobacco use, while vaping products, especially those not regulated, can vary widely in quality and safety.
