Vaping has become very popular among young adults and teenagers. Kids focus on the different flavors and the feeling it provides, yet they do not think of their health which is most valuable. Studies show that one out of five students use vapes/e-cigarettes. This is detrimental to the health of our young society. It is important to know what you are getting into before you become addicted or start using.
With vaping comes many health risks. Vapes contain nicotine, which effects adolescent brain development. It can harm parts of the brain that control attention, learning mood, and impulse. This is not good for young people in school who are there to focus and work to the best of their ability. Vapes and e-cigarettes contain metals that can be inhaled deep into lungs, they contain chemicals linked to lung diseases, and they contain cancer causing chemicals. Do not let marketing fool you, and do not trust that it is safe to use, because they most definitely are not.
It is important not to be influenced. When offered a vape, stand your ground and refuse. Becoming addicted to something deadly and dangerous is the last thing you want to happen. Stay far away because once you are addicted it is hard to stop. Once young people get addicted to vapes, it may make then venture off to use other harmful drugs.
