Long-Term Effects of Teen Vaping
Are you or someone you know vaping? This can lead to an assortment of health issues. Specialists at, Granite Recovery Center in New Hampshire, one of many outpatient drug rehab centers in New Hampshire, can help. Below is more information about the long-term effects of teen vaping.
Vaping is inhaling and exhaling the vapor from e-cigarettes. E-cigarettes do not make tobacco smoke. They make an aerosol that is made up of fine particles. Many toxic chemicals make up these particles.
There are several long-term effects of teen vaping. The first effect is the possible abnormal development of the brain. The next long-term effect is the risk of the client becoming addicted to vaping. Teens that vape are also more likely to use other substances, such as marijuana and alcohol.
The fourth long-term effect is that teens will usually use more than one tobacco product. Last but not least, vaping can cause cancer.
Abnormal Brain Development
The brain is not completely developed in teenagers. These clients put themselves at risk of developing long term health and brain development issues from nicotine use. Mood disorders, low levels of impulse control, addiction to nicotine, and lack of attention and learning are all long term brain-related health issues to vaping.
Addiction to Vaping
The brain continues to grow until around the age of 25. This means that the long-term effects of teen vaping affects the development of a teenager’s brain. Addiction is a type of learning, which makes teens more at risk for developing an addiction to vaping since their brains are still developing. This addiction to vaping can also lead to other drug addictions, such as an addiction to cocaine.
Other Behavior Related Risks
Teens that vape expose themselves to other behavior risks, such as marijuana use, alcohol use, and using other tobacco products. Other behaviors that may be a sign of an individual vaping include being secretive, money disappearing, not wanting to hang out at home and changing moods and more irritable due to being addicted to nicotine.
Using Two or More Tobacco Products
Young adults who vape are also more likely to use more than one tobacco product at a time. Many young adults and high school students who use tobacco products use both burned tobacco products and e-cigarettes. Cigarettes and other burned tobacco products are the main cause of tobacco-related diseases and death in the United States.
Risks of Using Aerosol
The chemicals in the aerosol also expose teens to health risks. Chemicals in vaping products include diacetyl, nicotine, benzene, tin, lead, and nickel. These chemicals can cause lung cancer and other health issues. E-cigarette batteries have also caused explosions and fires due to faulty devices, which can cause injury to the people nearby.
