E-Cigarettes Are Popular with Children and Young Adults
Vape pens and e-cigarettes have been increasing in popularity among teens and young adults in recent years. According to the FDA, the use of e-cigarettes by high school students increased by 20 percent just from 2017 to 2018. Due to a lot of aggressive marketing techniques that are aimed towards young generations and previous non-smokers, JUUL and other e-cigarettes have become the number one choice for nicotine consumption. The company produces these products in flavors that taste like candy and design them to look like flash drives to make them more appealing to kids.
Because this product is most popular among teens and young adults, the companies failed to provide the information that these products contain much higher levels of nicotine than traditional cigarettes. In fact, most teens that use JUULs believe they are not addictive at all, and that they have much less of a health risk.
The Dangers of Vaping
JUUL vaping products have a number of dangerous qualities that most young people don’t realize. Due to the higher levels of nicotine in JUUL pods, there is a much larger risk of addiction. Most consumers also don’t fully understand how e-cigarettes work. These pods are filled with a modified form of liquid nicotine that contains a higher concentration of cotinine. This chemical substance makes the nicotine more efficiently absorbed during inhalation which allows people to intake a lot more nicotine.
Along with this, e-cigarettes are also known for their battery explosion risk. These devices have exploded while charging, vaping, or just randomly in a pocket. This can also result in serious injury that includes burns, finger amputation, fires, and disfigurement of body parts.
What are the Side Effects of Vaping?
Some of the common side effects of JUUL e-cigarettes can cause serious health problems and physical injury that include, but are not limited to:
- Nicotine poisoning
- Heart attacks
- Heart problems
- Lung & respiratory problems
- Mental health problems
