Generation Z was almost the generation that overcame the tobacco industry. Almost. Vaping was supposed to be a safer way for those with nicotine addictions to beat their addictions. But now, vaping has become the new ‘it’ trend for teenagers. Everywhere you go, you can find teenagers with small USB sticks in their mouths, blowing clouds of candy-scented smoke into the air.

When something first comes out, it’s easy to say that it’s safe. But that is simply because there hasn’t been enough time to prove otherwise. When teenagers first began to vape, they could confidently say that there were no proven negative health effects. Now that it has been a few years, however, people have begun to die from vaping. All of a sudden, some are wondering if it really is so “safe” after all.

What was meant to be a tool for adults with smoking addictions soon became a trend for underage teenagers. JUUL, an American e-cigarette company, became a fan-favorite of teenagers. What some of those teenagers failed to realize, however, was that they were creating nicotine addictions for themselves. In fact, one JUUL pod contains as much nicotine as a pack of 20 cigarettes.

The first vaping-related death was reported on August 23 in Illinois. Besides the few deaths that have come about, many more have been hospitalized for vaping-related illnesses. On November 8, officials announced they had linked the presence of vitamin E acetate in the lung fluids of those who were suffering vaping-related lung diseases.

Hopefully, people will begin to wake up and realize that it has some serious side effects on health. Until then, all we can do is wait for more research to be done, and learn what the true effects of vaping are.
