Why Vaping Is Bad For You



Health officials have reported six deaths and at least 450 cases of lung injury connected to vaping. Patients with vaping-associated lung injury display a wide array of respiratory symptoms, including coughing and chest pain. Doctors still don’t know what’s behind the surge in vaping-related lung injuries. They suspect it’s not nicotine or THC, but other chemicals like vitamin E acetate that might be present in the vape device. People who vape are exposed to other serious health risks, beyond lung injury, doctors say. For example, nicotine, which can be present in high concentrations in e-cigarettes, is linked to brain development issues.

Why Vaping Is Bad For You

42 comments

  1. In short it's only good as a replacement for cigarettes nothing more, nothing less. If you're not already a smoker just don't even think about it there's literally nothing cool or positive about it.

  2. 6 deaths 450 injuries… we dont know if big Tabaco funded any of what we just saw… ugh… akums razor says keep vaping if you've been through some shit and nicotine helps, like we have for most of human civilization.

  3. quote "some vaping product are killing" vs all cigarrate product are killing people. my intuition sense bad energy from this people

  4. Ok I’m 12 and I have a vape and I really just bought this 3300 puff disposable vape and I only bought it because of some habits I had and not because I thought it was cool it’s just lame if u think ur cool just because ur ruining ur lungs and stuff and I told myself that after this I would stop caping forever and ik all smokers said they told themselves that and them now but really I knew how bad vaping was before this and I’m really just watching this to scare myself to make sure I stop Cause I play basketball and I don’t want to ruin my life just because I decided I was gonna buy a vape as a kid

  5. Y’all dumb. Think about years from now. If people really are getting hurt now, then it’s only going to get worst. People so blind that they convinced themselves that nothing will go wrong. THINK
    Literally putting this stuff in your body. It’s a trick to those who quite smoking cigarettes. You are still smoking. Blind mfs
    Y’all ain’t invincible

  6. PG is used in asthma inhalers, and PG vapour has been used in hospitals for its antibacterial action in the air. And VG is found in a huge number of foods and skincare products.

    And anyway we breath in toxins everyday without realizing it given that airborne particles in cities are multiplied enormously in concentration levels our lungs manage just fine.

  7. 😄 Im gonna vape til the wheels of my train fall off into hell. I frankly dont give a f. We're all gonna die one day anyways. Dont take your life too seriously, it's too short. Just let go and enjoy your life 🎈🎇🎊🍹

  8. Agenda from tobacco company's,
    Tobacco company's: just paid the media.

    Media: oh yeahh! We do it right now..

    Vape industry: 🤦

  9. In recent years, e-cigarettes have become a very popular stop smoking aid in the UK. Also known as vapes or e-cigs, they're far less harmful than cigarettes and can help you quit smoking for good.

    What are e-cigarettes and how do they work?

    An e-cigarette is a device that allows you to inhale nicotine in a vapour rather than smoke.

    E-cigarettes do not burn tobacco and do not produce tar or carbon monoxide, two of the most damaging elements in tobacco smoke.

    They work by heating a liquid that typically contains nicotine, propylene glycol and/or vegetable glycerine, and flavourings.

    Using an e-cigarette is known as vaping.

    What types of e-cigarette are there?

    There are a variety of models available:

    Cigalikes look similar to tobacco cigarettes and can be disposable or rechargeable.
    Vape pens are shaped like a pen or small tube, with a tank to store e-liquid, replaceable coils and rechargeable batteries.
    Pod systems are compact rechargeable devices, often shaped like a USB stick or a pebble, with e-liquid capsules.
    Mods come in different shapes and sizes, but are generally the largest e-cigarette devices. They have a refillable tank, longer lasting rechargeable batteries, and variable power.
    How do I choose the right e-cigarette for me?

    A rechargeable e-cigarette with a refillable tank delivers nicotine more effectively and quickly than a disposable model and is likely to give you a better chance of quitting smoking.

    If you're a lighter smoker, you could try a cigalike, vape pen or pod system.
    If you're a heavier smoker, it's advisable to try a vape pen, pod system or mod.
    It's also important to choose the right strength of e-liquid to satisfy your needs.
    A specialist vape shop can help find the right device and liquid for you.

    You can get advice from a specialist vape shop or your local stop smoking service.

    Will an e-cigarette help me stop smoking?

    Many thousands of people in the UK have already stopped smoking with the help of an e-cigarette. There's growing evidence that they can be effective.

    Using an e-cigarette can help you manage your nicotine cravings. To get the best out of it, make sure you're using it as much as you need to and with the right strength of nicotine in your e-liquid.

    A major UK clinical trial published in 2019 found that, when combined with expert face-to-face support, people who used e-cigarettes to quit smoking were twice as likely to succeed as people who used other nicotine replacement products, such as patches or gum.

    You will not get the full benefit from vaping unless you stop smoking cigarettes completely. You can get advice from a specialist vape shop or your local stop smoking service.

    Getting expert help from your local stop smoking service gives you the best chance of quitting smoking for good.

    How safe are e-cigarettes?

    In the UK, e-cigarettes are tightly regulated for safety and quality.

    They're not completely risk free, but they carry a small fraction of the risk of cigarettes.

    E-cigarettes do not produce tar or carbon monoxide, two of the most harmful elements in tobacco smoke.

    The liquid and vapour contain some potentially harmful chemicals also found in cigarette smoke, but at much lower levels.

    What about risks from nicotine?

    While nicotine is the addictive substance in cigarettes, it's relatively harmless.

    Almost all of the harm from smoking comes from the thousands of other chemicals in tobacco smoke, many of which are toxic.

    Nicotine replacement therapy has been widely used for many years to help people stop smoking and is a safe treatment.

    Are e-cigarettes safe to use in pregnancy?

    Little research has been conducted into the safety of e-cigarettes in pregnancy, but they're likely to be much less harmful to a pregnant woman and her baby than cigarettes.

    If you're pregnant, licensed NRT products such as patches and gum are the recommended option to help you stop smoking.

    But if you find using an e-cigarette helpful for quitting and staying smokefree, it's much safer for you and your baby than continuing to smoke.

    Do they pose a fire risk?

    There have been instances of e-cigarettes exploding or catching fire.

    As with all rechargeable electrical devices, the correct charger should be used and the device should not be left charging unattended or overnight.

    Reporting a safety concern with e-cigarettes

    If you suspect you have experienced a side effect to your health from using your e-cigarette or would like to report a product defect, report these via the Yellow Card Scheme.

    Is e-cigarette vapour harmful to others?

    There's no evidence so far that vaping causes harm to other people around you.

    This is in contrast to secondhand smoke from smoking, which is known to be very harmful to health.

  10. I’m 15 been offered to vape a few times in the last few years, but I’ve always turned it down. This is why and also ik how addicting it is

  11. this is because people made bootleg thc cartridges by cutting the liquid with vitamin d. stop spreading fear you ill-informed dipsh!t

  12. I've been vaping for 4 years now I haven't noticed any difference between now and then. Maybe not far enough along

  13. Everyone's scared because someone died from vaping.
    Do you even know how many people are dying right now from cigarettes. Yet cigarette is more legal than ecig(My country banned vapes).

  14. I like the Economist video better. This one is missing many information that should be delivered. This one like it's hiding some facts to drive opinion

  15. Vaping is only really bad if you're not using professional products that contain PG/VG/Nicotine and flavoring. Real vape liquid contains only those 4 ingredients. This kid used a vape device with some really bad product.

  16. Hmmm…nic vapes pens? Then Vitamin e-acetate with uh…black market THC? Then correlating back to nic vapes? (Shameful…at best!)
    How about lack of Gov. Over sight? How about lack of industry standards & verifications? Oh…what about the science from Europe that states nic Vaping is 95% less harmful than all the tar in traditional combustable tobacco products? Oh wait…did that European studies up hold standards not enforced in the Vaping industry?….come people…get the real deal…not just the neg. Hype feel! 🤔

    P.s- even if or perhaps when the vape industry has proper health officials oversight & enforcement…vapers unfortunately must still deal with rolling the dice on shading vendors. Whether local gas stations or under the table dealings….ugh. Get real already!

    Vaping: 61 Deaths Per Year (2019-2021) (US)
