Although e-cigarettes may not be as harmful to one's health as cigarette smoking. vaping is especially damaging to the younger user. most types of e-cigarettes including the most popular brand juul contain nicotine, the addictive drug found in traditional tobacco cigarettes.
According to my research i found out that e -cigarettes were developed in part to help adult smokers cut their tobacco use to provide a "healthier" alternative. one problem with vaping is that teens hear that it's not as bad for your health as smoking cigarettes and think there is no harm. they really think that they are mostly flavors that they are inhaling a pleasant gas.
Most e-cigarettes deliver,nicotine which is highly addictive and may cause negative health effect such as harming the developing brains of teens. Both e-cigarettes and regular cigarette contain nicotine which may be as addictive as heroin and cocaine. many e-cigarette users get even more nicotine than they would from tobacco product.
What i find most concerning about the rise of vaping is that people who would've never smoked otherwise especially youth are taking up the habit. vaping involves inhaling and exhaling the vapor produced by an electronic cigarette or similar device. the term is used because you can't "smoke" an e-cigarette since there is no smoke only vapor.
Through my research i found out that there are different types this are;
TUBE MODS> This are a vaporizer that looks like a futuristic flashlight.
MECH MODS>This are mechanical type power units with more powerful batteries that generate a higher voltage typically meant to generate more vapor.
BOX MODS>This are the futuristic looking power supply units you see vapers gripping.
E-cigarettes and vaping devices are harmful to the lungs and contain toxic cancer causing chemicals and other harmful agents such as volatile substances ultra-fine particles and heavy metals like nickel,tin and lead. not only are teens inhaling these substances into their own lungs but bystanders also are inhaling these toxins other dangers include e-cigarettes and electronic devices that are defective can cause fires and serious unintended injuries.
