When we started Woomi our mission was to help smokers and their families. Now in 2023 we have both clear scientific evidence and the support of governments that vaping electronic cigarettes is less harmful than smoking.
Public Health England has stated that e-cigarettes are ‘95% safer’ than conventional cigarettes, given the reduction in carcinogen load.i PHE has continued to recommend to the British government and people that e-cigarettes are a less harmful method of nicotine delivery there is evidence that they are an effective smoking cessation tool.ii
Why are electronic cigarettes less harmful? They operate totally differently from a conventional tobacco cigarette. When a cigarette is lit the burning tobacco leaf releases smoke that contains tar and thousands of toxic chemicals. Electronic cigarettes, when operated properly, do not burn and tests have shown that they release a far fewer number of chemicals and in lower amounts.
Kurt Kistler, a chemistry professor at Penn State and co-author of the study: “E-cigarettes include a huge variety of devices, power settings, wattage control, voltage control, and even temperature control” ran an independent study with Enthalpy Analytical and the analysis of vapor from five devices found far fewer toxins than in cigarette smoke.
“Tobacco kills more than 8 million people each year. More than 7 million of those deaths are the result of direct tobacco use while around 1.2 million are the result of non-smokers being exposed to second-hand smoke.”
Yes. More than 2500 Americans were injured and 51 killed by vaping THC with Vitamin E Acetate in 2019. The CDC stated that Illegal black market THC carts with the additive Vitamin Ev caused these injuries and deaths.

From the CDC and NEJM statements it was THC carts with Vitamin E Additive that caused the EVALI sickness and deaths.
If the tank can be opened and eliquid added then it is an ‘open system’ vaporizer. There are many different types of ‘open system’ vaporizers, tanks, coils and eliquids. Choosing the correct vaporizer kit and liquid, and running the vaporizer properly is essential to minimizing harm.
