Chemicals In Vape Juices
Vape juices come in many different flavors. Unfortunately, these flavors commonly have additives in them that are carcinogenic. This adds a whole new dimension of risks to vaping. Another danger is the fact that particles of toxic metals have been found in the vapor of e-cigarettes. People who vape may not be inhaling the same toxins that are in cigarettes, though they are certainly inhaling something else that is toxic. Recently, it has been found that some of the chemicals in vape juices are harmful to the cilia in a person’s throat and affect the genetics so that cilia cannot properly work.
There are reports of rare occurrences happening where vaporizers explode in people’s faces and death results. This happens as a result of many circumstances.
