Despite the impending regulations from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), more and more teens continue to vape because they think it’s “cool.” As the popularity of this new craze continues to increase, the FDA is looking to imply more strict rules on using e-cigarettes, as health concerns over this new fad is still up for debate.
Electronics cigarettes or e-cigarettes can come in many shapes and sizes. E-cigarettes produce aerosol through heating liquid that contains nicotine and other tobacco flavoring. These electronic devices can also be used for marijuana.
Because e-cigarettes are still considered fairly new, it has been difficult for experts to determine just how healthy they are.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the American Cancer Society claim that e-cigarettes are less harmful than actual cigarettes. In January, the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine also released a review on 800 e-cigarettes confirming the same facts.
