Is vaping good for a 12 year old?
No. Vaping or JUULing are not good for anyone, especially someone the age of 12.
Most e-cigarettes contain nicotine, the same highly addictive drug in cigarettes. Some can even contain as much nicotine as a pack of 20 regular cigarettes!
The danger with e-cig’s is that they can be viewed as harmless by many teens because some teens think it’s just water vapor or just flavoring, or that their vape says it’s nicotine free, or that because they vape it doesn’t mean that they’re going to smoke cigarettes. None of this is true.
Vaping can expose users to harmful chemicals, even the flavors that claim they’re safe to eat in food. Inhaling flavors still contains chemicals that could lead to ‘popcorn lung’, which has no cure.
Using nicotine as a teen, can disrupt brain development, which continues until you’re 25 years old. These long-lasting effects can increase impulsivity and mood disorders. And, teens who vape are more likely to smoke cigarettes.
Bottom line is that vaping is unsafe for everyone, especially the younger you are.
