Vaping: What You Need to Know

What Is Vaping?

Vaping is the inhaling of a vapor created by an electronic cigarette (e-cigarette) or other vaping device.

E-cigarettes are battery-powered smoking devices. They have cartridges filled with a liquid that usually contains nicotine, flavorings, and chemicals. The liquid is heated into a vapor, which the person inhales. That's why using e-cigarettes is called "vaping."

What Are the Health Effects of Vaping?

Vaping puts nicotine into the body. Nicotine is highly addictive and can affect brain development.

Because vaping is new, we don't yet know how it affects the body over time. We do know that the nicotine in e-cigarettes:

  • is very addictive
  • can slow brain development in teens and affect memory, concentration, learning, self-control, attention, and mood
  • can increase the risk of other types of addiction later in life

Smoking anti-freeze is ever so tasty, propylene glycol, ethylene glycol and more are used as diluents and carriers for the flavor and nicotine in these things.  Some glycols will kill your pets if lapped up, I can just imagine the wonderful effects on your lungs and brain.

Many people inject propylene glycol, they inhale in inhalers... it's a binder used in injectable meds, so the body doesn't flush the meds out, again you feel to yack about a topic you know jack shit about...
