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.
