What is vaping? Vaping is the act of inhaling a vapor produced from an e-cigarette. An e-cigarette, or an electronic cigarette, is an electronic device that heats up an electronic liquid and aerosolizes it or vaporizes it. The electronic device consists of a battery, a cartridge which holds that electronic liquid, usually consisting of nicotine. It also has an atomizer or a vaporizer which actually produces the vapor.

E-cigarettes come in flavors like mint chocolate, bubblegum, blueberry. The consensus is that these flavors make the e-cigarettes taste better than traditional cigarettes and smell better than traditional cigarettes. But is that really a good thing? Not really because the fact that these e-cigarettes smell better and taste better can make people who normally would be repulsed by smoke and walk away from cigarette smoke, if they’re inhaling the vapor that doesn’t smell offensive, they might stay there and get exposed to nicotine or other chemicals in the vape. Also, these attractive, fun, fruity flavors make e-cigarettes attractive to teenagers.

This leads us to the dangers of vaping. Danger number one, vaping is attractive to teenagers. Even though vaping was initially presented to stop adult cigarette smokers from smoking to get them to quit tobacco, with all the fun fruit flavors of e-cigarettes and the marketing that has young, cool, hip people using the e-cigarettes, it’s become very attractive to teenagers, so much so that now over 3 million youth actually vape. And with the e-cigarettes now looking like tiny little USB flash drives, that makes them even more attractive because they’re inconspicuous. You can hide them from parents and teachers. And with the pleasant smells, they’re not offensive. So as a teenager, you’re less likely to get caught.
Danger number two of vaping, vaping can lead to a nicotine addiction. The e-liquid or the e-juice that comes with e-cigarettes can have different concentrations of nicotine. Some of them have 36 milligrams per milliliter of nicotine and some have even more. Now, in a typical traditional cigarette, the average user will only receive one milligram of inhaled nicotine. So you can imagine if in this tiny cartridge you’re getting over 36 milligrams per milliliter of nicotine, you can actually even have more exposure than you would’ve had smoking traditional cigarettes.

So what’s the big deal about nicotine? Well, nicotine can cause increased blood pressure, increased heart rate. And particularly in children, it can affect cognition. Nicotine can affect brain development in children, cause decreased cognition. In children, nicotine can cause a decrease in impulse control, a decrease in their concentration. And when you get these nicotine crashes, you can also have increased depression, increased anxiety if you are a teenager who’s addicted to nicotine.
