Vaping seems to have a detrimental effect in the gums, mouths and throats of teen vapers. The hotter the e-liquid becomes when inhaled, the worse the irritation caused by vaping seems to get, causing mouth sores and inflamed throats that take longer to heal.
It is not clear, however, if they might have the same effect on lungs, impairing the healing process. But it is worrying to note young vapers have reported suffering from chronic bronchitis in larger numbers than non-vapers.
The youth of most of the people who take part in the study is what concern researchers the most, because some seem to be showing similar conditions to smokers while the popularity of vaping skyrockets among teenagers.
