What is Vaping?

Ever succumbed to the teen pressures of vaping? Well 37.3 percent of America’s grade 12 students have. Vaping is process of inhaling a vapour or “juice” created by a juul, vaping pen, electronic cigarette or other vaping devices. These devices are filled with pod that contains a liquid that is mad of nicotine, flavorings, and chemicals. When the liquid is heated into vapor, the user inhales. This process is the reason for its name “vaping”.

What is the juice?

Normally vape juice is a mixture of nicotine and flavoring with a solvent. Typically, the solvent used is propylene glycol, vegetable glycerine, or a mixture of the two. The chemicals used in the solvent are known cancer causing ingredients, organic compounds, and heavy metals such as nickel, tin, and lead.

Health Effects of Vaping

  •  Slow brain development
  • Burns 
  • Affects memory and concentration
  • Leads to smoking actually cigarettes or other forms of tobacco
  • Increased risk of other types of addiction (e.g., alcohol, drugs, etc.)
  • Weaker Immune System

Vaping vs Smoking

At the moment smoking is proven to be more injurious to our health than vaping however, vaping is still dangerous and has similar injurious effects on our health. Both cigarettes, and e-cigarettes contain nicotine, and potentially 7000+ toxic chemicals that are bad for our lungs to inhale.

In addition, both vapes, and traditional cigarettes are just as addictive as each other. Once you start and get addicted it becomes very hard to stop, and this form of addiction can lead to other serious addictions later in our lives such as alcohol and drugs.

Although researcher know more about smoking and have proven the numerous long- term effects to be more detrimental. The short term effects that vaping produces have made it at best slightly or better than vaping to an extent. Due to the fact that vaping was made to be a way to quit smoking, they share a numerous amount of similarities.

Vaping vs Weed

Like weed vaping devices can be used to inhale tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). The tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) chemical is also found in cannabis and allows the user to experience the same high. THC is what produce the intoxicating, and additive high providing a stronger, and more mind-altering effects than smoking the equivalent amount of weed. This means that vaping THC may result in an even quicker, stronger high, but it may also mean that more harmful effects are suffered by persons. The FDA is warning user to stop using products that contain tetrahydrocannabinol as it
has become highly dangerous.

Secondhand Smoke

What is it?

  • Smoke from burned tobacco items, such as cigarettes, cigars, or pipes, is secondhand smoke.
  • Secondhand smoke can also be smoke that the individual smoking has emitted or exhaled out.
  • More than 7,000 chemicals are present in cigarette smoke, which include hundreds which are harmful and about 70 which can lead to cancer.

It’s effects…

  •  The only difference between firsthand and secondhand smoke is in the definition. The person directly intaking the vapour goes through the same health problems because the second person is also intaking that vapour and their body is still processing.
  •  There is really no risk-free amount of contact to second-hand smoke; even limited exposure could be harmful to health and wellness
  • About 2,500,000 non-smokers have also died since 1964 by medical issues caused by secondhand smoke exposure.
  •  For children who are exposed to the smoke in any way shape or form typically have more respiratory problems throughout their lives.  This includes respiratory symptoms (coughing, sneezing and shortness of breath) asthma, respiratory infections (bronchitis and pneumonia), ear infections, and worst of all a greater risk of
    SIDS(sudden infant death syndrome).

  • Money – Vaping is pricey! The expense of the cartridges is continuing to build up very quickly. Alternatively, somebody might invest or spend the time on other activities they need or enjoy.
  • Addiction – Addiction in the developing brain can established receptors to many other substances for future addiction.
  • Brain Risks – In children and adolescents, nicotine alters brain growth. It might make studying and focusing more difficult. Too many of the changes in the brain are irreversible and can affect mood or regulation of impulses later down the line.
  • Unknown Health Effects – There aren’t any reported long-term health risks of vaping. Researchers have noted significant lung damage, as well as some deaths, in individuals that vape.
  • Toxins – The vapour produced from e-cigarettes does not consist of water. The vapour includes toxic chemicals which are inhaled by the user and exhaled into the atmosphere, as well as very small particles.
