The Risks of Vaping

Contrary to common misconception, vaping is just as harmful as smoking traditional cigarettes. Both habits involve the inhalation of nicotine and other hazardous, addictive chemicals.

The use of an e-cigarette presents significant short- and long-term risks, particularly in young smokers. The effects of vaping include ailments such as:

  • Cancer
  • Lung disease
  • Heart disease
  • Seizures
  • Asthma
  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
  • Predisposition to other addictions and substance abuse
  • High blood pressure

The Responsibility of JUUL and Other E-Cigarette Brands

Vape producers, specifically JUUL, purposefully incorporate features into their products, and the advertisements for those products, that are meant to attract teen consumers.

Initial gravitation towards vaping may be motivated by the perception that e-cigarettes are safe, the impact of peer pressure, and, in the case of JUUL specifically, their pod flavors. Flavored oils tempt kids to start vaping and only add to the inaccurate perception that using a JUUL is not risky.

The marketing of JUUL bolsters the e-cigarette’s enticing image, which heavily relies on social media and the images of social influencers and young-looking models.

Although JUUL has denied its focus on underage smokers in their advertisements, statistics on teen vape use support these suspicions — according to The Truth Initiative, the probability of teens aged 15-17 using JUUL compared to people in the 25-34 age group is 16 times greater.
