Vaping tied to higher odds of Asthma in Teens
What are E-cigarettes ?
E-cigarettes or electronic cigarettes which is also known by different names, including electronic nicotine dispensing systems (ENDS), alternative nicotine dispensing systems (ANDS), hookahs, mods, vape pen vaporizers, shisha pens, e-cigs, and e-pipes are just some of the many terms used to describe these products.
Electronic cigarettes are batteries-powered devices people use to heat liquid or vapor to inhale. E-cigarettes use heat to turn nicotine or nicotine-free e-liquid into a vapor solution that can be inhaled.
Vaping, the act of inhaling or exhaling aerosols, refers to the vapor produced by e-cigarettes or similar devices. The term is often used interchangeably with e-cigarettes, which do not produce tobacco smoke, but aerosols are often confused with water vapor, which consists of fine particles.
Vape pens heat up nicotine extracts, tobacco flavors, and other chemicals to create an aerosol that can be inhaled. Although e-cigarettes do not emit smoke like tobacco cigarettes, they can expose people to passive aerosol vapor, which can contain harmful substances.
Although e-cigarettes contain fewer chemicals than regular cigarettes, they can contain heavy metals such as lead and flavorings associated with lung disease, as well as small particles that, when inhaled, can contain lung cancer-causing chemicals.
E-cigarettes related to Asthma:
Research has shown that e-cigarette aerosols can contain potentially harmful substances including flavorings such as diacetyl (associated with lung disease), metals (such as lead), and other carcinogenic chemicals
Although some regulated FDA products such as nicotine inhalers are safer than e-cigarettes, they are still considered less safe than burned tobacco products such as cigarettes and cigars.
While some think vaping is a safer alternative to traditional cigarettes; Canadian research suggests vaping can increase the risk of developing Asthma and Asthma attacks in adolescents and adults.
The Consensus Study Report, which evaluated more than 800 different studies conducted by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine1, found that moderate evidence is that adolescents who use electronic cigarettes are more likely to suffer from Coughing, Wheezing, and Asthma worsening
Although vaping is considered a safe alternative to smoking, e-cigarette use among teens and adults could increase the likelihood of either developing Asthma or having an Asthma attack, according to a study presented at the ATS 2021 International Conference.
Recent epidemiological studies have shown a link between e-cigarette use and Asthma in children and adults with respiratory diseases.
A study in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine found that people who used electronic cigarettes were 30 percent more susceptible to lung diseases such as Asthma and Bronchitis. Among the study participants who had never smoked or used an e-cigarette, there was no significant association with Asthma.
In addition to unknown health effects, early indications suggest that vaping could serve as an introductory product for children and adolescents who later use other nicotine products, including cigarettes, known to cause disease and premature death.
It is important to stop the use of tobacco products, including electronic cigarettes, as soon as possible to reduce health risks and prevent nicotine dependence.
