Is Vaping Better Than Smoking? Long-term Effects and Risks

Do you vape Guys? You shouldn’t, though. A recent study found that vaping may be more harmful to you than smoking. Flavorings in e-cigarettes have been found to irritate the lungs, according to Greek researchers.

Both smoking and vaping have risks and adverse side effects. E-cigarettes are not a safe alternative to smoking, according to science, even though scientists are still unsure of their long-term health effects.

Vaping entails inhaling an aerosol through an e-cigarette or another device that contains several chemicals, including nicotine and flavouring. Teenagers are becoming more and more accustomed to vaping.

Many people think vaping is safer than smoking, but this isn’t always true, according to the American Heart Association (AHA)Trusted Source. Vaping may be dangerous, according to growing evidence.

Both smoking and vaping are harmful to people’s health. The evidence that is currently available suggests that smoking is more dangerous than vaping. This does not imply that vaping is secure, though.
