I’ve written articles on DrClaudia.net about the dangers of electronic cigarettes and vaping.
E-cigarettes have been on the US market since 2006 and only now has the FDA requested testing on the thousands of ingredients that go into making the many flavors used in them.
The latest research indicates that e-cigarettes have 10 times more cancer-causing ingredients than tobacco products.
We now know that vaping can actually cause life-threatening diseases.
Electronic cigarettes were meant to replace the deadly tobacco habit, but now, the thing that replaced it is even more deadly and even more available to kids. In 2013, nearly 750,000 kids who never smoked tobacco, smoked e-cigarettes, representing a 300% increase in just two years.
Cigarettes are deadly no matter which kind you smoke.
