Vaping was thought as the solution to smoking, but it is now causing an addiction amongst children as young as 10. Capitalisation on the trend for financial benefit by the introduction of new flavours entices and markets towards young children as they can buy vapes from many retailers without ID, as well as through online outlets.
Teenagers think that vaping is something casual but do not fully understand the risk of them. In a vape there are several harmful chemicals such as –
- Ultrafine particles that can be inhaled deep into the lungs
- Flavorants such as diacetyl, a chemical linked to serious lung disease.
- Volatile organic compounds
- Heavy metals, such as nickel, tin, and lead
