The con that kills

The tobacco industry uses various tactics to make cigarette smoke appear less harsh and harmful than it is but that does not make it any less dangerous. In the end, you're still inhaling the same dangerous chemicals that can lead to cancer and other health problems. This is the con that kills. While vapes (e-cigarettes) don’t contain tobacco, they do contain hundreds of chemicals: some are known to be harmful to inhale and many haven’t been tested at all.
