Over the past few decades, there has been an impressive campaign against smoking. According to the American Lung Association, the proportion of people smoking more than 24 cigarettes a day decreased 76 percent between 1974 and 20181. Some say vaping, or the use of electronic cigarettes, has contributed to this reduction in smoking.
Nevertheless, e-cigarettes are still dangerous. Early information has revealed that vaping has significant risks, including higher rates of lung cancer. People with chronic lung conditions who use e-cigarettes are at an even greater risk of developing serious health problems. However, at this time, more research is needed to determine if vaping can cause cancer.
