Michigan State University Helps You Understand Vaping

Vaping: A Healthy Smoking Alternative? A Must See


E-Cigarettes, also known as vapes, have
quickly risen in popularity with 3.9
million people in Canada reporting have
tried vaping at least once. According to
a study by researchers at the University
of Waterloo 6.3% of
youth reported having used a vape in the
past 30 days. With such a large portion of
the youth population using vapes, it is
important to ensure people using
e-cigarettes or vapes are aware of the
potential health risks involved. There is
still much to learn on the health risks
associated with vaping much like
cigarette smoking when it first became
popular and more accessible. Now you may
have heard that vaping is a health
alternative to cigarette smoking and
this is true as vapes do not contain
nearly as much toxic chemical additives
as cigarettes do.
Nonetheless, most vape juices contain nicotine which has been
shown to affect the development of the
adolescent brain. Many studies have shown
how nicotine consumption can increase
one's risk of psychiatric disorders as
well as having negative effects on
cognition function later in life.
Nicotine addiction can also cause a
young person to become dependent on
nicotine affecting their ability to
concentrate in tasks such as schoolwork.
It is also important to understand that
every different flavor of vape juice
contains a unique chemical used to give
the vapor its characteristic taste.
Although these chemicals are usually
safe to consume in foods it is unknown
what effects they will have when inhaled
into the lungs.
For example the butter flavoured vape
juices used in many e-cigarettes use a
chemical called diacyl. Diacyl is also
known for its use in buttery flavored
popcorn and is notorious for causing a
condition called
popcorn lung in factory workers. Popcorn
lung, also known as bronchiolitis
obliterans, is a life-threatening
condition and is just one example of how
a chemical that is safe to eat is not
necessarily safe to inhale. Now it is
important to be clear that although
e-cigarette use has its potential health
risk, many studies have shown that they are
useful tool for smoking cessation in
long-term smokers. A study conducted on
40 long-term smokers found that they
were able to produce cigarette
consumption by 50 percent over a 24 week period. The participants also did not
exhibit the usual withdrawal symptoms
associated with quitting smoking. With
this information in mind, it is important
to realize that e-cigarettes are a
potential tool for smoking cessation but
still has its associated health risk.
This is why it is important to limit the
availability of vapes to underage
individuals to avoid exposing them to the
negative health effects of nicotine and
vape juice but it may be advantageous to
introduce e-cigarettes to an
individual who is addicted to smoking
cigarettes as it is relatively less
harmful for their health and can aid them
in quitting smoking cigarettes altogether.
