Vaping and Young Smokers

Our Kids are getting sucked into Vaping.  Vaping and youth smokers are a national problem.

The World Health Organisation has just come out with a recommendation that electronic cigarettes are harmful. In the past, they endorsed electronic cigarettes as there was not enough evidence that it is harmful.  BUT Now we have had the deaths of several young kids.  Many children are starting to vape at primary school.  Some are as young as eight years old.

The electronic cigarette is just another way to deliver nicotine to the body, and anybody who thinks nicotine is not harmful is deluding themselves. Nicotine is a stimulant, and when it enters the body, it causes the blood vessels to constrict. Doing this increases your blood pressure and thus your chances of stroke. By constricting your blood vessels, nicotine interferes with the proper circulation of nutrients to your body and is, therefore, harmful. The biggest body organ, your skin, shows the effect of smoking quite easily. Long-term smokers look older because their skin does not get the proper nutrients; this is only one organ; what of the other organs in the body?
Nicotine is harmful, and anybody that thinks that they can use nicotine on a long-term basis without harming themselves is deluding themselves.
