Juuling is Cool, Chic, and Artistic

Well, except for the wet lung thing, the exploding device, and all those pesky toxins that get inhaled. Other than that, though, e-cigarettes including the Juul are all the rage, at least that’s what the marketing, directed at children, says.

“There’s what appears to be the first death by vape, once considered the millennial response to cigarettes, the potential safe replacement to the oddly human oral fixation of sticking something that blazes fire on one end into one’s mouth. Firefighters responding to a fire earlier this month found 38-year-old Tallmadge D’Elia with severe injuries to his face. Officials believe the lithium battery, used to generate heat for the smoke that’s emitted at the end of a vape, got so hot it exploded, causing the fire and killing D’Elia. Then there was the case of an 18-year-old hostess at a rural Pennsylvania restaurant who decided to try using e-cigarettes, according to a case study in Pediatrics. Within three weeks, the woman developed a rather nasty condition—“wet lung”—that included coughing, labored breathing, and stabbing pains in her chest, eventually sending her into respiratory failure.” (https://www.thedailybeast.com/vaping-killed-vapers-dont-care).

Yeah, yeah, but adults successfully use e-cigarettes to quit real cigarettes, right? Maybe not. “Some people believe e-cigarettes may help lower nicotine cravings in those who are trying to quit smoking. However, e-cigarettes are not an FDA-approved quit aid, and there is no conclusive scientific evidence on the effectiveness of e-cigarettes for long-term smoking cessation. It should be noted that there are seven FDA-approved quit aids that are proven safe and can be effective when used as directed.” (https://www.drugabuse.gov/publications/drugfacts/electronic-cigarettes-e-cigarettes).

2,100,000 VAPING KIDS AND COUNTING

2.1 million middle and high school students were e-cigarette users in 2017 — far surpassing traditional combustible cigarettes.” (https://childmind.org/article/teen-vaping-what-you-need-to-know/).


Why Should I Quit? (https://kidshealth.org/en/teens/e-cigarettes.html)

Wanting to be the best, healthiest version of yourself is an important reason to quit vaping. Others include:

Addiction: Addiction in the growing brain may set up pathways for later addiction to other substances.

Brain risks: Nicotine affects your brain development. This can make it harder to learn and concentrate. Some of the brain changes are permanent and can affect your mood and ability to control your impulses as an adult.

Use of other tobacco products: Studies show that vaping makes it more likely that someone will try other tobacco products, like regular cigarettes, cigars, hookahs, and smokeless tobacco.

Toxins (poisons): The vapor made from e-cigarettes is not made of water. The vapor contains harmful chemicals and very fine particles that are inhaled into the lungs and exhaled into the environment.

Sports: You want to do your best in sports, and vaping may lead to lung inflammation (irritation).

Money: Vaping is expensive! The cost of the cartridges over time starts to add up. Instead, you could spend that money on other things you need or enjoy.

To go against tobacco company advertising: Many e-cigarettes are made by the same companies that produce regular cigarettes. Their marketing targets young people by making fun flavors for e-cigarettes and showing young, healthy people vaping. They’re trying to make you into their new, lifetime customer.

Unknown health effects: Many of the long-term health consequences or vaping are not known.

#Acetaldehyde + #acetone + #acrolein + #aerosol + #aldehydes + #drypuff + #formaldehyde = #Electroniccigarette

“Substances identified in e-cigarette liquids and aerosols include nicotine, solvent carriers (PG and glycerol), tobacco-specific nitrosamines (TSNAs), aldehydes, metals, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), phenolic compounds, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), flavorings, tobacco alkaloids, and drugs. Most reviewed studies have evaluated nicotine and impurities in the liquids such as TSNAs and nicotine-related impurities, while other studies have focused on identifying potentially harmful chemicals in the aerosol, such as carbonyl compounds, VOCs, TSNAs, metals, and silicates. Various chemical substances and ultrafine particles known to be toxic, carcinogenic, and/or to cause respiratory and cardiac disease have been identified in e-cigarette aerosols, cartridges, refill liquids, and environmental emissions. Some of the identified TSNAs, aldehydes, metals, VOCs, phenolic compounds, PAHs, and tobacco alkaloids are harmful or potentially harmful constituents.” (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/books/NBK507184/).

What’s Your Favorite Flavor of Poison? Cool mint, brulee, mango, fruit medley, Virginia tobacco, cool cucumber, classic menthol, or classic tobacco?

“A paper released in March in Chemical Research in Toxicology pulls no punches. It calls out Juul’s e-liquid formulation, arguing that the combination of nicotine and flavoring chemicals in the pods are a “cause for concern,” even compared to other vape manufacturers.” (https://www.inverse.com/article/54783-juul-pods-effects-health) “(1) some JUUL flavor pods have sufficiently high concentrations of flavor chemicals that may make them attractive to youth and (2) the concentrations of nicotine and some flavor chemicals (e.g., ethyl maltol) are high enough to be cytotoxic in acute in vitro assays.” (https://www.inverse.com/article/54783-juul-pods-effects-health).
