Vaping regrets: Multiple Inflammation of brain, heart, lungs and colon.

Researchers at University of California San Diego School of Medicine have released a new study showing that continued use of pod based e-cigarettes, can alter the inflammatory state across multiple organ systems including the brain, heart, lungs and colon.

Their major finding was the raising of inflammatory markers of the brain in the nucleus accumbens region. Neuro-inflammation of this region has been linked to anxiety, depression and addictive behaviours.

One month of vaping usage severely elevated inflammation markers in the colon, increasing the risk of gastro-intestinal disease. Click here for a report on chemicals in vaping products.

Another study of 21,000 over a number of years found that compared to people who had never used e-cigarettes, those who vaped were 30% more likely to develop asthma and 60% were more likely to develop chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)[1] E-cigarette use has also been shown to increase blood pressure, heart rate and leads to hardening of the arteries.

In February 2020, the (US) Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) confirmed 2,807 cases of e-cigarettes or vaping use-associated lung injury (EVALI) and 68 deaths attributed to that condition. A Johns Hopkins University study on vaping ingredients in October 2021, revealed thousands of chemical ingredients in vape products, most of which were yet to be fully identified. Among those found were pesticides and two flavourings that have been linked to respiratory irritation.

What does vaping do to your lungs? Short answer … it destroys your lungs. For more information I suggest this informative read from Johns Hopkins University.
