There are 7 comments on Vaping Could Make You 40 Percent More Likely to Get Respiratory Disease

  1. No surprises. If you inhale what is in effect ~90% warmed anti-freeze vapour it’s bound to result in tissue damage and have a detrimental effect to health.

  2. I smoked cigs for 2 years and the switched to vape form only 2 years. (19 to 24~25) Products were safes, no wierd mixes. I’im from EU.
    I’m now 27 and i nave developed COPD, with no familiar history of such disease. Stay away from vaping, it il will kill you faster then the the regular cigs.

    1. Something isn’t right here. You need genetic testing. Vaping has been around for 10’years now and has improved the health of many people who have COPD. Either you are lying or you were vaping black market juice. Stop fear mongering.

  3. I smoked a pack of cigarettes a day for 30 some years. I was very short of breath and coughing. I finally quit cigs by first chewing nicotine gum than vaping. I slowed down nicotine a little at a time till I’m down to the lowest mg. Have now been vaping for 7 yrs. My chest is clear, I’m breathing normally again and I haven’t had a cold or bronchitis in 10? yrs. Am I the only one that has had this outcome? I’m great and if it weren’t for weight gain I’d go down to 0mg, Just giving my input, not pushing vape at all.

  4. There are many peoples that are unknowns about vaping, including what chemicals make up the vapor and how they affect physical health over the long time. We need to understand that electric cigarettes are dangerous to your health,
