Numerous laws and government policies are forcing tobacco companies to inform consumers of the health risks that smokers should take in consideration before buying a pack of cigarettes. However, tobacco companies are not doing the same with e-cigarettes and therefore, there’s a false misconception that vaping products are harmless. Well, this is not the case at all and today we are going to shed some light on this matter.
A recent study from the “Centers for Disease Control (CDC)” is showing that there are more than two million young Americans buying and using e-cigarettes every month. This study is highlight the fact that American Youth is oblivious to the risks of using e-cigarettes. Therefore, today we are going to present some of the biggest health risks that e-cigarettes users should know about.
While this might seem like a horror story to scare away little kids from touching e-cigarettes, there are many people who got serious injuries from malfunctioning batteries. While cases of exploding e-cigarettes are rare, they still appear from time to time and no one should use something that’s likely to explode, especially put in their mouth.
