Dangers of E-cigarettes

E-cigs are more than a fad, but some young people are unaware of the addiction they're signing up for. These users are sounding the alarm.

All about prevention

It looks harmless. But it’s packed with nicotine and other harmful products. Nearly 2/3 of young Juul users don’t know that. Now, this freshman student is sounding the alarms according to the Truth initiative. 3 million American teens are using e-cigarettes, because they think it’s healthier than smoking based on a report from the American Academy of Pediatrics.

“Many kids think that these e-cigarettes have just water vapor when, in reality, it sees infinitesimally small metal particulates. Once you start to juul, it's very very hard to stop. We felt that it was important to educate teenagers on exactly what's going into these e-cigarettes. There's a huge massive disinformation that teenagers are subscribing to. Like cigarettes, juuling can lead to tobacco addiction. Some of my friends have tried using cigarettes and it’s because they have been juuling because they’re so used to juuling that they just think it’s ok to use cigarettes. If you take away those flavors, then you really take away the initiation. And that's all about prevention. And that's really what we're all about at Students Against Nicotine. We're connecting with passionate youth across the nation, and like-minded organizations to advance our initiative and our vision of a tobacco-free youth population. There have been deaths and there have been a lot of other problems. People think it’s an easy solution to cigarettes, but it’s turned out that it has its own difficulties,” explains Jack Solomon.

The expression “juuling” comes from the Juul — a popular vaping device. Jack Waxman produced Juulers against Juul — to spread awareness. His goal: subject e-cigarettes to the same rules as Cigarettes — and ban flavors. At least six people have died from vaping-related lung disease. On September 11, 2019, President Trump announced that the FDA would remove non-tobacco flavored e-cigarettes from the market.

    Thanks for the video, BRUT. Most of the dumb fuc*s in the country do not understand why the govt wanted to ban e-cigarettes. They made a mockery of the announcement.

    It's pathetic how the youth is being misled today. So much for the outcry by the nicotine addicts .. if you want to stick to your addiction , it is better you pay the price .

    Nirmala Sitharaman's announcement of the ban is targeted towards the youth, with first-time violators facing up to one year along with a penalty of Rs 1 lakh: https://indianexpress.com/article/india/e-cigarettes-banned-india-nirmala-sitharaman-6006478/

    This video is faulty on multiple counts. The message and the content is wrong. Here are the facts: (1) Vaping actually SAVES LIVES. It is 95% safer than smoking tobacco cigarettes, science says that. Health Canada, Public Health England and even CDC of the US agree that. (2) Nicotine is NOT the enemy, "cigarette' smoking is. And there is a difference between the two. (3) Besides, teen vaping is a misnomer. Those who do, would've smoked anyway. And if they chose vaping over smoking ~ they genuinely acted wisely. (4) Vaping is NOT about harm "elimination". It is about harm "reduction". (5) Bottomline: No one disagrees that "no smoking and no vaping" is the correct way to go. However, if one decides to pick-up a cigarette ~ then vaping is a safer alternative.

    So as an adult I don't know what to and what not to consume? Let an individual decide what they want to inhale, drink, or eat. LET ME DECIDE WHATS GOOD AND WHATS BAD FOR ME.

    Juul contains nic salt, which is high dose of nicotine, upto 50mg nic salt, but regular Ejuice normally contain 3mg or 6mg nic. Those are not for minors , then how those guys get those ? They are 14 15 years old school kids. They don’t even know what they doing. That’s why they are hospitalise . Even if they smoke cigarettes, they will eventually get some lung problems.

    What kind of morons are ruling this world, they are claiming only 6 people have died of vaping related lung disease. Tobacco has claimed so many lives it may in millions. But no tobacco ban and ban on non tobacco vaping products. Such idiots!! Their only aim is to aid tobacco companies from which they huge revenues and corruption. F## k this shit!!
