The inhalation of vapor via an electronic cigarette is known as vaping. It is advertised as an alternative for cigarette smokers by delivering nicotine without tobacco. Health concerns from vaping are mostly uncertain, but according to reports by health experts, vaping can affect lungs, memory, and in some cases, result in death.
Vaping is good
E-cigarettes serve as a better alternative to users of traditional cigarettes. Vaping substances don't have tobacco or tar, so they have less serious health effects. They serve the purpose of allowing users to quit smoking by controlling their nicotine intake.
Vaping is a better alternative to smoking cigarettes
E-cigarettes don't contain tar and eliminate combustion and ash, making them softer on the lungs, unlike traditional cigarettes. They are 95% less harmful than tobacco and are a healthier alternative to smoking.
Although vaping is advertised as a far better product than traditional cigarettes, it doesn't affect people any less harmful. Since it is a fairly new product, experts still have to examine its dangerousness to a user's health. With the studies done so far, doctors and researchers have claimed that its potential effects could be far worse in the long run. For such reasons, vaping can be as harmful as smoking cigarettes.
Vaping is a threat to young people
With the rapid increase in e-cigarettes, teens who have not even smoked before turn towards vaping. E-cigarettes are battery-operated, cheap, and can be smoked indoors, making their use convenient. Vaping is turning into a trend for young people rather than an alternative for smokers.
False advertisement of e-cigarettes being "healthier" has turned focus away from the toxic compounds found in e-juices that can cause cancer and other diseases. Cases of serious lung diseases resulting in intubation, hospitalization, and death are linked with vaping.
The vaping industry is causing damage to the environment
The rise in e-cigarettes like JUULs and others has resulted in a public health crisis and an environmental one. The excessive production of single-plastic, which cannot be recycled, has resulted in large amounts of litter, damaging the environment.
