This is fair, especially with street mixes where contents aren't provided. But more respectable juices do publish their contents on the bottles. The reason I know this is because my husband vapes so I have access to confirm that this is true. That said, inhaling anything into the lungs might have negative consequences like air pollution.inhaling anything into your lungs that is not meant to be inhaled is probably not safe. i don't care if you vape, just admit that we don't know the full dangers
Nicotine isn't the same in a e-cigarette as in a 'normal' cigarette. In a normal cigarette the nicotine gets burned and it ends up in your lungs. This doesn't happen with an e-cigarette. Nicotine is never healthy, but an e-cig most likely reduces the risk of getting lung cancer. (And ever since I stopped smoking and starting vaping- my condition has turned back to normal)
Not the best description, but I don't feel like going into it now. But I think this picture explains it well.
If you choke on a vape and it burns it simply means that you can't vape and/or their nicotine level was probably high, or that the PG/VG* balance of their liquid was high. (Higher PG causes a sharp feeling in the throat, PG is not harmful) Most people choke on a vape the first time they try to vape.
*PG: propylene glycol
*VG: vegetal glycerin
I also don't get where people in America even get those 'illegal liquids' from. Are legal liquids that expensive to begin with? As far as I can see they are not more expensive in America than they are here. Weird. I wonder what drives people to go for an 'illegal' liquid anyway.
Drugs. People like to vape marijuana and it is not legal here in every state.
But marijuana isn't harmful in a sense that it kills people from simply smoking it. There are legal CBD oils you can put into your e-cigarette. From what I have heard, those vaping incidents were with liquids people tried to 'make' themselves. Or e-cigarettes exploding (there can be multiple causes for this). So I wouldn't blame marijuana in this case (only people being stupid, it's like putting water in the gastank of your car and expecting it to work. If they want to smoke marijuana, they could at least try to be smart enough and research how to smoke it properly.).
Eh, in some way I can believe that vaping can cause health issues. The issue is that one day you'll hear people dramatize a whole story about how unhealthy vaping is, that people died and are getting 'mysterious lung diseases' (corona, is that you?),... And the next few months it's suddenly quiet again. If it's really that unhealthy/dangerous, then why does no one properly research it? Though I think most research has already been done since our government wouldn't allow an extremely harmful product to be sold publicly.
