In a world where information is readily available to you via social media and other sources, it’s a prime time to be at the forefront of knowledge. But, how do you know the information is accurate? This struggle has been even bigger in the vaping world, where opinion is heavily involved in many articles. So how do you define fact from fiction? We’re here to hopefully give you a good reference to find the information that should be spread to create more awareness about vaping!
How Can I Tell if An Article is Legit?
The first thing you should always look at is the source of the article. Is it a verifiable news source, and are their sources cited? This is one of the biggest ways to determine if an article is worth reading. Many websites post articles for click bait to create more traffic to their site, but use inconsistent information that cannot be verified, or even based on their own opinion. If you start to read it, and immediately find inconsistent information that you know is not accurate, it’s best to scrap that article and move on. Vaping is a highly talked about subject right now, but not many people truly do their research before they form their opinion and post it to the world.
“But They Have A Study Saying _____”
When seeing these “studies” consider if they are using real world circumstances. If not, they may have set the study up to get the results that they wanted to achieve. Anyone can create a study, but that does not mean that it is accurate. Things that factor into studies are what they are comparing vaping to. Is it cigarettes, or no smoking at all? This will greatly affect the results of a study, and can immediately discredit a study, that you may even have seen as a good one. The top way to verify if a study is legitimate is to see who performed the study itself. A research staff from a university or team of scientists is more likely to have solid information, than a study created specifically for an article. A true research team will make sure to have proper controls, a good amount of people, and will not use their own opinions in creating results. This is where checking to see if sources are cited really come in handy. No study is perfect, but the best studies are ones that have been tried multiple times to create multiple results to compare.
Opinion Vs. Fact
While vaping is becoming more widely talked about, this does not always mean that the people talking about it have done their research. They could easily be getting their information from one of the bunk articles or studies that we’re showing you how to avoid. These tend to hold a kernel of truth that make you find them somewhat believable, and writers take this and build around based on their own opinion rather than fact. Even picking and choosing what information to use can be very misleading, so if you feel like essential information is missing, the article is most likely not a legitimate source of information.
Spotting a fake vape study is easy if you pay attention to the details within the articles posted. Always check your sources, and question the agenda of who is posting it, as there are people out there who purposely misinform people to deter them from vaping. Help the vaping community by not passing these articles along, and when you find a good one, share with your friends and family. Together we can bring the truth about vaping to light and dispel the fake information. We’ve even added an easy chart below for you to easily pick out the fake vs. the real, so be sure to share with your friends!

One of my favorite places to vape these days is in my car.

Sometimes, it feels like vape mods have always been around, but actually, they're a relatively recent entrant onto the vaping scene. The original mods were poorly designed and even worse quality, however, the modern devices of today bear very little resemblance to the old-school mods which were designed by cig-a-like users who experimented with drilling bigger air holes and changing [...]
