How Does JUUL Work?
JUUL is a brand of electronic cigarettes which work by heating liquid nicotine in order to create a vapor that one can inhale. Electronic cigarettes were once touted as a safe alternative for individuals that wanted to quit smoking traditional cigarettes, but over the years, they have transformed into a whole industry that offers different flavors to a largely impressionable segment of the population that may not appreciate the risks associated with nicotine inhalation.
Is JUUL Bad For You?
To put it simply, JUUL is bad for you as nicotine, in any form, is highly addictive. Over time, an addict needs more of the substance, leading them to a slippery slope of habituation and addiction, and possibly a gateway to substances that are even more addictive and highly dangerous. Over the years, JUUL manufacturers have defended their products stating that they are not intended to be sold to persons under the age of the 18, but the marketing tells a different story: JUUL is marketed with the use of youth-centric images and colors which appeal more to teenagers and children, so it’s no surprise that more and more children are vaping, putting them at risk of severe addiction.
How Addictive Is JUUL?
In addition, JUUL may be more addictive that traditional cigarettes due to the vaporization of nicotine which makes it more absorbable by the body compared to cigarette sticks that one has to puff and inhale.
JUUL, Cancer and The Sale of Contaminated Pods
What’s alarming is the fact that some of the chemicals present in JUUL fluid have been found to be carcinogenic. When people think about JUUL, they do not think about cancer, but the fact is that nicotine is a carcinogen when it is inhaled for extended amounts of time. In addition, JUUL was found to be contaminated with other carcinogens, as claimed by a former JUUL vice-president who was fired when he raised the alarm on the same.
In addition, JUUL as a company failed to recall these contaminated pods, willfully putting the lives of their consumers at risk just so they could make a quick buck. In addition, the former VP claimed that the company was in the habit of selling expired pods that were expired.
How Can I Quit JUUL?
If your child is currently using JUUL and has found it difficult to quit, there are a few resources available to them in order to help them break free. Mayo Clinic has developed a program called Become an Ex which is geared to youth that are addicted to E-cigarettes, and the government has a Quit Smoking resource that you can find HERE. In addition, hypnosis as well as rewarding your child everyday they go without using their JUUL E-cigarette can go a long way in helping them quit.
How Does JUUL Harm Me?
EVALI is an acronym provided by the CDC which stands for E-cigarette or vaping product use associated lung injury. It is typically seen in long-term vaping enthusiasts, and it cannot be diagnosed traditionally save for a medical exam by a doctor.
Here are some of the most common symptoms of EVALI:
- Regular headaches
- Nausea and vomiting
- Shortness of breath
- Difficulty breathing
- Weight loss
- Pain and tightness in one’s chest
JUUL Linked to Popcorn Lung Disease
JUUL has also been shown to cause a condition called Popcorn Lung, or Bronchiolitis Obliterans, which is a lung disease that leads to the inflammation of the air sacs and small airways found in one’s lungs. Doctors typically take a lung biopsy in order to diagnose the presence of the disease, and it is usually preceded by complaints of shortness of breath, coughing, and fever after an extended period of time using JUUL or other E-cigarettes. It is typically treated with corticosteroids, but if the case is severe, a lung transplant may be needed.
