Most people are not aware of significant differences between vapor and smoke. First you need to understand the difference between vaporization (vaping with an electric cigarette) and combustion (smoking a real cigarette).
Vaporization is the transition of an element (liquid) or compound (solid) into a gas (vapor). For example when boiling water it evaporates and creates steam, evaporation is one type of vaporization. With e-cigarettes, a vapor is formed when the atomizer (a device which converts a stream of liquid into a fine spray) heats the liquid (e-juice or e-liquid) in a an e-cigarette cartridge or tank converting it into a mist. The mist resembles a puff of smoke, but it is simply water vapor.
Combustion is the act of burning that involves a chemical reaction between one or more substances and oxygen. With cigarette smoking, tobacco is burned, creating smoke and other harmful products of combustion. Cigarette smoke contains chemicals that are harmful to both smokers and nonsmokers.
