Local health experts in Sioux City, Iowa are warning about the potential dangers of electronic cigarettes and vaping.

Electronic cigarettes containing nicotine and the cartridges in them are easily addictive, despite many people believing they are less harmful than traditional cigarettes. Doctors warn that electronic cigarettes are not subject to any safety regulations from health agencies, which does not mean they do not pose a significant threat to overall health.

Vaping was initially thought to be a safe substitute for smoking, but we gradually discovered that it is not," said Dr. David Ensz.

Doctors say that the likelihood of developing respiratory illnesses such as pneumonia is higher in people who use electronic cigarettes. Similar to regular cigarettes, electronic cigarettes still contain toxic substances.

Dr. Ensz says that electronic pod devices contain toxic chemicals, including one substance they are currently researching, which is Vitamin E. When heated and inhaled into the lungs, it can cause inflammation and harm.

If you are struggling to quit smoking, please reach out to your doctor who can help you create a personalized plan that you can stick to.
