The first thing to know is that for most users vaping is an alternative to the deadliest consumer product ever made: cigarettes The vast majority of regular users of vapor products are ex-smokers or current smokers Nothing compares to the health risks of setting plant material on fire and inhaling the smoke Half of lifelong smokers die prematurely from smoking-related disease
Over the past few months research has turned up evidence that vaping can pose many brand new risks The vapors mess with immunity some studies show Smoker?s cough and bloody sores have begun showing up in teen vapers The hotter a vaped liquid gets the harsher its effects on human cells And a relatively new vaping behavior called dripping ups the heat This threatens to intensify a teen?s risks from those vapors
Fake news is usually written in a way that deliberately avoids explicitly defining the finer details of the topic of the article For example The Ashtray Blog points to an article on the prevalence of dripping amongst teenagers which not only used false figures but also did ?everything they could to make dripping sound like a form of drug abuse [whilst] every piece of coverage did a monumentally awful job of explaining what dripping actually is? This type of evasion is typical of biased reporting which tries its best to avoid facts and figures that don?t support the view it?s trying to put forward Another typical tactic is using evasive language to say something without explicitly stating it eg using words such as ?could?
There have been junk studies claiming that vaping actually reduces the number of smokers who quit Wrong says this study from a group of top-notch British cessation experts They also show that vapers are more likely than those who use other methods to not relapse
In the lab Rahman and his colleagues grew lung fibroblasts in Petri dishes Then they cut into the community of growing cells to mimic a wound Afterward they exposed the growing cells to e-cigarette vapors
However the most shocking aspect of this article is that the author describes dripping as the action of ?dropping e-cigarette liquid onto the hot coils of the device to produce more smoke and flavor? What dripping actually is is directly applying e-liquid to the coil and wick within the e-cig whilst it is at room temperature This soaks the wick enabling you to happily vape away However as dripping means you have to build a custom atomizer and wrap and connect a coil yourself it seems a little far-fetched that this is a habit many teenagers will have taken up The research this article uses also bases its study on the usage of tobacco; which e-cigarettes don?t even contain
