What You Need to Know About E-Cigarettes

It is estimated that electronic cigarettes, also known as vapes and e-cigs, are used by nearly 25% of teenagers aged 15 to 19. E-cigarettes use battery power to heat a liquid or juice that has a variety of flavors. The liquid also contains a mixture of propylene glycol and vegetable glycerin (PG/VG), as well as nicotine.

The health effects of e-cigarettes include:

  • Increased blood pressure
  • Weight gain
  • Cancer
  • Increased heart rate
  • Weakened immune system
  • Respiratory infections

According to the World Health Organization, addiction to nicotine and tobacco accounts for 10% of deaths worldwide each year. Prolonged use of e-cigarettes can also lead to lung infections, pneumonia, tuberculosis, and influenza. While e-cigarettes have less harmful chemicals than traditional cigarettes, making them very popular and advertised as “safe,” they still contain nicotine and other chemicals that are poisonous to the human body.

Furthermore, some e-cigarette brands contain formaldehyde, which is a toxic substance often used in building materials. Others contain antifreeze, which is linked to cancer, and diacetyl, an artificial compound made from petrol. These chemicals are extremely dangerous when inhaled, and can lead to severe, even fatal, diseases and conditions.

Injuries can also result from using e-cigarettes. These often occur when the batteries in an e-cigarette leak or explode during use. Burns, sore throats, organ damage, and skin rashes from contact with harmful chemicals in e-cigarettes have hospitalized many users. E-cigarette companies advertise their product as a great way to quit smoking, but this is not true. Studies have even shown that addiction to nicotine can increase by using e-cigarettes. The injuries and illnesses that occur from prolonged use can cause long-lasting medical conditions that require extensive medical treatment and care.
