Background of vaping.

Vaping>is an electronic cigarette or e-cigarette is a handed electronic device that stimulates the feeling of smoking. It works by heating a liquid to generate an aerosol commonly called"vapour",that the user inhales. E- liquid is the mixture used in vapour products such as e-cigarettes and generally consists of propylene glycol,water,and nicotine. When e-cigarette entered international market,some users were dissatisfied with their performance and the cigarette continued to evolve from the first generation.

Some of the international tobacco companies dismissed e-cigarettes. However, recognizing of a new market sector that could render traditional tobacco products. E-cigarette varies across countries and state, ranging from no regulation to banning them entirely and states . The e-cigarettes have been listed as drug delivery devices in several countries because they contain nicotine. Some companies have been rapidly expanding using aggressive marketing messages similar to those used to promote cigarettes.

This is simply a brief discussion of what vaping is an how it was introduced in the markets.

Hey Trizah!

I really like your research topic as vaping has become a very big problem within teens where I live. In my opinion, the scariest thing about vaping is that the long-term effects are unknown as it is so new! I'm excited to read more of your research as the ins and outs of e-cigarettes are something I do not know too much about. 

Here are some sources that may be of use to you:


Good luck and great job!

hey Trizah!

I really like that you chose to do this as your topic.  It is a problem happening all over and it something that strongly effects teens as well as everyone else.  I like how you introduced how the market progressed as I think that is something pretty much everyone didn't know about.  So me idea's for your future rounds could be something along the lines of the affects and dangers.  I find personally that it is so interesting how teens are so quick to use these devices when there is no research on the long term affects.  Lot's of people are saying that "popcorn lung" is an outcome of it, so looking into that might be interesting and enlightening.

you might also want to look into the different types, as of now there are so many different kinds:

overall I really like your topic and I'm excited to see what you do!

Hey Trizah, 


I remember talking to you at the meeting near the beginning of November, and I was quite excited to read what you produced! This week's research was quite informative, and I enjoy how you are first reviewing the history of vaping before moving forward. 

I remember my History teacher mentioning that lead poisoning is a concern for long-term vapers; something about how lead is released into the vape juice when the coil heats up? It would be neat if you looked into if there's any truth behind this claim (or if she was simply trying to scare us off vaping haha).

Here are a couple sites that may be of use to you: (a neat PBS video)


Good luck with your research, I look forward to reading what you find

Hi Trizah, 

Nice research round! Your research round was informative and detailed. I enjoyed how you structured your research round. You started with what is was before tackling questions like how it works and global views concerning the e-cigarette sector. This made it really easy to read and understand! Good job! What I found interesting is how you stated that some companies are expanding by using aggressive marketing messages. This really made me think about myths and facts they’re putting out there to attract potential customers. If you are wanting to take this post further, I suggest that you could also investigate the misconceptions that not only companies are saying, but as @Joanna Whitter from Charles Best mentioned, members of the society that are attempting to either lure or deter us from using e-cigarettes. Vaping is still a new concept and not much known is about it yet, including its long-term effects. Nonetheless, I remember reading this article that mentioned how vaping is “better” or “safer” than smoking. Supposedly, it can even help one stop smoking tobacco products. However, when I was just researching online about it, I read on an article from Healthline (first site below) that rebuked this last piece of information on how it helps people to stop smoking. They mentioned a 2017 European study concluded that vaping does not help individuals quit smoking. They also mentioned another study published in The BMJ that shows how there is a strong correlation between vaping and vaping and smoking cessation for a minimum of three months. Even so, there is still a lot of debate over whether using e-cigarettes can help you quit smoking tobacco products. If you were to research on if vaping can help one stop smoking tobacco products, I believe that it would be very beneficial to those reading your post! The second website attached can help you begin your research! You can also research the dangers and regulations there are with vaping. After reading a Global News article, I know that E-cigarettes now banned in B.C. workplaces, parks and beaches. I suggest you look more in depth about into that!

Good luck!
