They are bad for you, addictive, yet they are becoming more and more popular among young people and even children: vapes. Experts are very concerned.

This is apparent from research by NOS Stories

A vape is an electronic cigarette that can be bought in different colors with different flavors.

It contains many harmful substances. And in most also nicotine. That is an addictive substance that disrupts the brain.

Nisrine Sahla pretended NOS Stories research on vaping. More than 200 children have indicated that they have vaped.

Schools are therefore very concerned about all the children who vape.

According to experts, the fact that young people and children are vaping more and more is not good. Vaping can make you dizzy and even faint.

Experts think vaping is becoming more and more popular because young people think it’s cool to do.

But it is not, because most young people do not use vape. And you also have to realize that a lot of other young people don’t think it’s cool at all.

According to experts, it is also too easy to get vapes. If you are under 18 it is forbidden to buy them, but you can easily do that online.

New law

In the schoolyard it is forbidden to use vapes, just like regular cigarettes. But there is still little response. However, there will be a law that must ban the flavors, which will probably make it less tasty.
