Chromium, Nickel, Zinc and Lead are not just elements from Chemistry class. These are toxic metals that many students are breathing in every day. None of these metals, especially lead, are safe to consume.
In Southern Door, an increased number of students are abusing E-Cigarettes. Vaping is more common than smoking tobacco cigarettes at this high school. It has come to the point where posters about vaping are hung in the hallways, classrooms, and bathrooms. Students are continually using vapes while the school finds initiatives to reduce the numbers.
Many teens transfer, or begin to, vape because they think it's the safer option. That's the question: Is vaping safer than smoking cigarettes? Well, what mainly sets vaping aside from cigarettes, besides the electronic casing, is the lack of tobacco. Tobacco is cancer causing, but that is not the only cancerous ingredient that is held in these addictive traps.
E-Cigarettes are not fully regulated, so not all that vape juice contains is listed on the box. When vaping, water is not what is being consumed. E-Cigarettes contain an E-Liquid that turns to an aerosol with each breath in. If this isn't enough, nicotine, too, is held in each inhale.
Vaping under the age of 21 is illegal. Before your next drag, think about what you are actually consuming and the consequences involved.
