We’re not sure if this applies to you, but for us, it seems like wherever we go, we would see more people vaping. You probably think that vaping is the ‘healthier’ option compared to traditional cigarettes. While it’s true that vapes don’t include all the contaminants in tobacco smoke, it still isn’t safe.
Here’s why according to Heart Organization and John Hopkins Medicine:
- Vape usually contain nicotine which is very addictive and can cause harm to the developing brains of teens, kids and fetuses in women who vape while pregnant.
- E-cigarette vapor includes potentially harmful substances such as diacetyl (a chemical linked to serious lung disease), cancer-causing chemicals, volatile organic compounds, and heavy metals such as nickel, tin, and lead. Users breathe in these toxic contaminants, and non-users nearby risk secondhand exposure.
- As of February 18, 2020, a total of 2,807 hospitalized EVALI cases or deaths from all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and two U.S. territories (Puerto Rico and U.S. Virgin Islands). 68 deaths have been confirmed.
We’re just as shocked as you are when we were digging for more info. For instance, did you know although vaping was marketed as a cessation tool by marketers, the FDA has never officially approve of it? A 2016 study was conducted to find how useful vape is in smoking cessation and found that the subjects are 28% are less likely to quit smoking if they were vaping.
Now, that doesn’t mean all hope is lost. If you are thinking of quitting, you still can. The first step is to reduce the problems caused by tar - smokers’ cough and lung cancer (amongst many other problems).
