5 terrifying health effects of vaping

E-cigarettes have gained wide popularity as the best way to get rid of traditional smoking habits. Because they often come in unique flavors, this has given them wide popularity among teenagers.

Most experts believe that vaping is not as harmful as smoking traditional cigarettes. However, various studies have shown the horrific health impact on young people and even children.

Here we take a look at all the ways vaping can harm young people's bodies.

1.  Damaging sperm

Teens who smoke e-cigarettes risk passing damaged genes to their future children.

A study from the Universities of Southampton and Bergen in Norway found that smoking teens increases the likelihood of their children developing asthma, obesity and lung problems in the future, and scientists warned that vaping could also cause similar health conditions.

The results were "more pronounced" in children whose parents started smoking during puberty, compared to those whose parents started smoking sometime before pregnancy.

2. Slow down brain development

Nicotine smoking can permanently affect brain development in those under the age of 25, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Experts said that nicotine consumption during the teenage years can harm the parts of the brain that control attention, learning, mood, and impulse control. It can also change the way new memories are formed, which may increase the risk of addiction.

3. Tooth decay

People who use e-cigarettes are more likely to develop tooth decay.

Dr Michael Heffernan, a dentist at The Wessex Dental Specialist Care, says most e-cigarettes contain dangerous chemicals that can harm teeth. But just vaping and sucking air can itself lead to tooth decay.

He added: “When your mouth is dry, harmful bacteria can grow and overpower the protective bacteria, and increased levels of bacteria can lead to the development of tooth decay and gum disease. This often appears in the form of increased sticky plaque, causing inflammation, swelling and bleeding of the gums, tooth sensitivity and bad odor.” Foul mouth.”

He continued: “We also know that nicotine, found in e-cigarettes, can limit blood flow to the gums, and poor blood circulation can lead to more serious gum disease around the teeth and the potential loss of dental implants. However, these effects are less harmful than Conventional smoking or chewing tobacco products.

4. Heart disease

Many children believe that vaping is less harmful than smoking cigarettes because there is no smoke. However, some chemicals in e-cigarettes can be harmful to the heart.

The American Heart Association (AHA) issued a scientific statement linking e-cigarette smoking among adolescents to cardiovascular disease.

"The latest research suggests that vaping is just as harmful to the body's cardiovascular systems as traditional cigarettes," said Dr. Hoang Nguyen, a cardiologist from MemorialCare Heart and Vascular Institute in California.

Vaping can also cause atherosclerosis (hardening of the arterial wall leading to high blood pressure, excessive inflammatory response and/or acute inflammation) and can lead to blood clots and respiratory distress syndrome, along with increased heart rate and adrenaline release.

These factors combine to increase the risk of heart attacks and strokes, even in healthy children and teens.

5. Lung diseases

Vaping causes breathing difficulties and lung damage in children.

Some chemicals in e-cigarettes are known to cause acute lung injury and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and may cause asthma and lung cancer.

Researchers from the United States found that young people who use e-cigarettes are at greater risk of developing bronchitis and shortness of breath.

The study found that the odds of wheezing (occurring during breathing in response to bronchitis) were 81% more likely among 30-day e-cigarette users compared to those who had never used them.

The odds of developing bronchial symptoms were twice as likely, while the odds of developing shortness of breath were 78% more likely after taking into account age, sex, race, and parental education.

Doctor: Plant suppositories for the ear can be fatal

Dr. Vladimir Zaitsev, an otolaryngologist, warned of the danger of using plant suppositories (candles) in the treatment of otitis media.

According to the doctor, many people place these suppositories (candles) in the ear canal and set them on fire, because they believe that there is a sulfur plug in their ear that will stick to the wax and can be pulled out of the ear. But this is not scientifically proven and poses a risk to their lives.

“But the most important thing is that a person does not know for sure whether there is wax in his ear or not,” he says.

According to him, if there is pus behind the eardrum, its density will decrease and it will become more liquid under the influence of the candle’s heat, and this is the greatest danger. Because pus can enter the middle ear cavity.

He says: "Anatomically, the brain is located slightly higher than the middle ear, which makes it easier for pus to be absorbed and reach the brain, which will lead to secondary meningitis and then death."

For her part, Dr. Tatiana Shapovalenka adds that encephalitis, blood clotting in the sinuses, etc. can occur.

“Everything is progressing very quickly,” she says. “Feeling a severe headache is a sign that the infection has spread to the meninges.”
