Vaping the Flu Away
Vaping the Flu Away
Forget chicken noodle soup, vitamin C, and all the other remedies Mom told you would help keep colds away, there's a new cure in town! According to recent scientific studies, the aerosolized propylene glycol (PG) found in vapor clouds is surprisingly deadly to airborne bacteria which cause the most seasonal sickness.

Pneumococci, streptococcus, and staphylococci are all among the bacteria that PG vapor wipes out. If any of those sound familiar that's because Pneumococci is typically responsible for causing pneumonia, Streptococcus bacteria causes strep throat infections, and Staphylococci are responsible for deadly staph infections.
As the cold weather hits so too does a whole host of illnesses associated with these three bacteria. Over the next few weeks we’ll see the familiar tell tale signs of sickness in the office, coworkers coughing and sneezing all over the place, piles of tissues in everyone’s garbage, and more sick days than you can shake a stick at. So what can you do to prevent the common cold from getting you down?

It’s easy! Just vape to your heart's content and the vape clouds will take care of your bacteria problems for you. Of course, you should still wash your hands and take extra precautions during the winter seasons, but it’s good to know that vaping helps too. We have Dr. Theodore Puck, one of the world’s most highly regarded scientists of the early twentieth century, to thank for this interesting discovery.
Dr. Puck’s research has led to some interesting results
“The observations here reported add further support to the previously proposed conception of the mechanism of the lethal action of propylene glycol vapor, namely, that a bactericidal concentration of the glycol accumulates in the bacterial droplet as a result of contact with and absorption of glycol molecules from the surrounding atmosphere.”
“Pneumococci were killed by amounts of propylene glycol as low as 1 gm. in 20 million cc. of air. Concentrations of 1 to 5 million to 1 to 10 million were required to produce the same degree of killing of streptococci and staphylococci.”
So there you have it, if you want to beat the common cold this year just start blowing vape clouds around yourself and you’ll be right as rain!
E-Liquids with a 60/40 VG PG blend have a higher concentration of PG than regular E-Juices, so if you want to have a better chance of beating the cold season this year make sure to try one of these E-Liquids.
