    Vaping - What you need to know

    Vaping – the act of inhaling a vaporized liquid from an electronic device – is the latest trend in tobacco use, and it’s alarmingly prevalent among today’s teens.

    Despite myths that vapes only contain “harmless water vapor,” that is not the case. There are hundreds of different vape products, which may include a range of ingredients including nicotine, chemical additives, flavorings and THC, the active ingredient in marijuana.

    These devices go by many names including e-cigarettes, smokeless cigarettes, vaporizers, vape pens, mods, tanks, cigalikes, JUUL, e-hookah and hookah pens.

    Though some may claim vaping is healthier than traditional tobacco use, that doesn’t mean that vaping is safe, especially for young people. Studies have shown that the aerosol vapor from vape products can contain dangerous toxins, including heavy metals and chemicals known to cause cancer and other diseases.

    There are also no standard regulations for vape manufacturers. Even with more than 450 different types of vape products sold, no universal standards for product design, ingredients and safety features exist. More troubling, many vape products are owned by big tobacco companies, which have a history of prioritizing sales over safety.

    Especially concerning, vaping causes greater risks for adolescents. Nicotine, the addictive ingredient in cigarettes, is also in most vape products and 100 percent of JUULs. The chemical has a negative impact on adolescent brain development, causing lasting cognitive and behavioral impairments, including effects on working memory and attention.

    Additionally, vaping is a predictor of future cigarette smoking. A study of 12th grade students who had never smoked a cigarette found that those who had reported recent vaping were more than four times (4.78) more likely to report past-year smoking one year later.

    Thanks a lot for the info. There will be always multiple contradictions around vaping, but one I know for sure: vaping is definitely healthier than smoking. And if e-cigs are able to help to quit, why not? I do vape a lot, but with nicotine free vaporizer only (this one https://gypsyvapes.com/dazzvape-gt800-vaporizer ), different researches prove vaporizers are 100% safe.
