Risks Of Vaping

Vaping has become increasingly popular among teens in recent years, and while it may seem like a harmless way to have fun with friends and fit in with the crowd, it’s posing some serious risks to teens’ health. Due to the accessibility and wide variety of flavors and nicotine levels available, vaping’s popularity amongst teens has skyrocketed, and health experts are warning of its potential long-term health risks. 
 
Vaping products contain nicotine, which is a highly addictive chemical, and even the smallest amount can have significant impacts on teens’ developing brains. As teens’ brains are still forming, nicotine impacts their decision making and judgment, and can increase their impulse control and anxiety. In addition, for those teens who vape high levels of nicotine, there is an increased risk of addiction and substance abuse.
 
Furthermore, vaping aerosols contain toxins and other chemicals that can harm the lungs and respiratory system. There is a risk of developing chronic lung conditions such as asthma, bronchitis, and COPD. It can also lead to an increased risk of heart disease, and damage to the arteries. 
 
Overall, there are serious health risks associated with vaping for teens, and parents, teachers, and health professionals should be aware of this to help advocate for teens’ health and make sure they have the education they need to make informed decisions.
