Vaping is often thought of as a healthy alternative to smoking - no nasty smell or bad breath, controlled nicotine amounts, and no carcinogens that cause smoking-related diseases.
The truth is, research now shows severe negative effects: difficulty breathing, coughing and fatigue, vomiting and diarrhea, and in some cases seizures - all caused by harmful chemicals going straight into the lungs.
According to the Illinois Department of Public Health, the aerosol created by e-cigarettes can contain harmful ingredients, as well as a chemical made from Vitamin E in cannabis products. In fact, doctors around the country are scrambling to get a better understanding on what’s causing the ever increasing number of lung injuries that seem to be related to vaping.
