THE DANGERS OF JUUL VAPING & E-CIGARETTES
JUUL is a brand of e-cigarette, an electronic nicotine delivery system that vaporizes a liquid for inhalation. This process is also known as vaping. The liquid used is contained in replaceable cartridges called pods, which come in a variety of flavors. JUUL is known for its USB (flash drive) shape, which makes it easy to conceal and use in public places like schools. When JUUL Vaping products were first marketed, the company claimed JUUL Vape E-Cigarettes were “better than smoking” or “a safer alternative to smoking”, resulting in a surge of users finding themselves addicted to nicotine and suffering serious health issues as a consequence. This includes teens and those that were non-smokers before using JUUL.
WHAT ARE THE NEGATIVE EFFECTS OF JUUL?
It is vital that users understand the dangers of JUUL vaping. Therefore, it is also worth pointing out that it’s not just the nicotine that is bad in JUUL products. While these vaping products do not contain a lot of the bad stuff that you would find in tobacco, there are a lot of other bad substances in them. The e-liquid formulation is a combination of glycerol, polypropylene glycol, flavor, benzoic acid, and nicotine. In fact, it is now known that one JUUL pod contains the same amount of nicotine as one pack of cigarettes. When compared with the other vaping devices that are on the market today, JUUL actually contains more than twice the concentration of nicotine, making the addiction risk very high. Unfortunately, this is not the only negative impact that is associated with nicotine. While it is highly addictive, there has also been a plethora of scientific research that shows nicotine impairs lung development and brain development if it is utilized during adolescence.
ARE THERE OTHER DANGEROUS CHEMICALS IN JUUL?
While the liquid does not contain some of the toxins in regular cigarettes, JUUL vapor was found to have 42 additional chemicals, a number of which are known as carcinogens. JUUL products also contain a higher amount of benzoic acid than other e-cigarette products, which is known to cause vomiting, nausea, abdominal pain, sore throat, and cough if someone has constant exposure to it, which will definitely be the case if you are using JUUL vape products.
