[ARTICLE] The Dangers of Vaping & E-Cigs
Filed Under: Wellness | Published: Feb 28, 2017 | Author: Rehab Center

While the smoke in cigarettes is what causes many of the major health problems associated with smoking (such as lung cancer), nicotine still creates a wide range of health problems. People who vape may not realize this (as it is often ignored in advertising material), but nicotine is dangerous.

Why? Nicotine is actually a poison, one that will cause an immediate reaction in your body, including:

  • Increased blood pressure
  • Stimulated heart
  • Raised blood fat levels
  • Constricted blood vessels

Ironically, the purity of e-cigarette vapor means you are getting a much higher dose of nicotine with each vape. As a result, these effects are likely even more pronounced than they would be if you were simply smoking cigarettes. But, more studies need to be done on this particular point before it is proven. Right now, it is simply a likely danger.

While e-cigarettes may be a useful and temporary way for people to quit smoking, they are not safe for long-term use. Any type of sustained drug use will harm your body and vaping is no different. Even if the e-cigarette steam isn’t as carcinogenic in substance as cigarette smoke, it’s far from safe. If you have any more questions about e-cigarette safety, please contact us at RehabCenter.net to learn more.
