Considering that some of the chemicals are known carcinogens, why did it take so long?
Vaping is being touted as a transition from being a smoker to being smoke-free, but it isn’t.
In fact, it’s likely to be more dangerous than smoking tobacco products because the short- and long-term effects of these chemicals being heated and inhaled aren’t known.
Research using mice indicates that when they’re exposed to vape smoke in the womb:
- Became very hyperactive.
- Had a build-up of plaque in their arteries.
- Had a 50% decrease in sperm.
- The sperm they had moved slowly.
Thinking of quitting? See your doctor. Nicorette gum and Chantix nicotine replacement may help you.
