How Harmful is Vaping for Your Health?
Vaping and e-cigs have gained a lot of popularity over the past decade, with many people thinking it is harmless compared to smoking regular cigarettes.
The fact of the matter is this – when it comes to any type of smoke inhalation, it goes without saying, you should not be doing it if you value your health.
When it comes to your health, vaping can lead to:
- Inflamed gums (redness, tenderness & swelling)
- Excess bacteria in your mouth that can lead to gum disease, decay, and cavities
- Dry mouth and irritation of the mouth
- Throat irritation
- DNA damage (death of your cells)
- Bad breath
- Periodontal disease
- Tooth and bone loss
As vaping is quite new, more research is needed to know further ways in which it can negatively affect you. That said, we’d say this is plenty of info to say no to this terrible habit.
It’s never too late to quit. Health is your greatest wealth!
