The American Lung Association and the American Academy of Pediatrics just launched a joint campaign to help youth quit vaping and using electronic-cigarettes. Recent request by several public health experts at five major universities have also asked that CDC to correct misinformation about the dangers of vaping and its connection to lung cancer. Experts say it is more about illicit substances added to vapes rather than traditional vapes or e-cigarettes. Dr. Basel Shoua from Arizona Oncology discussed the dangers.
As Shoua points out, there is a different between traditional cigarettes and vaping. With traditional cigarettes, the user inhales smoke, and with vaping, the user inhales vaper. But what’s in the vapor may cause health issues.
