In today’s world we are surrounded by electronics: computers, smartphones, laptops. Even traditional things such as cigarettes have started to see the rise of e-cigarettes and vapes. Vapes are promoted as a healthier alternative to smoking as they do not contain the same toxic chemicals that cigarettes produce when burned. However, vape products have significant drawbacks that can be just as dangerous as regular cigarettes.
What is vaping?
As stated above, instead of burning tobacco and inhaling it, vaping involves inhaling nicotine produced from a battery-operated vape or e-cigarette. Oftentimes, vape pens can come in popular flavors such as mint, cherry, and even watermelon. Popular vape company JUUL markets a wide variety of vape flavors to their consumers.
However, it has been noted that vaping also contains other chemicals that have also been proven to be carcinogens. This is especially concerning as JUUL products are known to contain higher levels of nicotine when compared to other vape products.
Just like with regular cigarettes – certain health issues can develop as a result of using vaping products. Lung issues are one of the main problems that can arise with wheezing, shortness of breath, and scarring being some of the symptoms that can pop up as a result of vaping. These can be especially concerning with young adults, as many vape brands like JUUL focus their marketing efforts on the young adult audience. Other issues such as seizures, heart problems can occur as a result of vape use.
