Have you or somebody you loved under the age of 26 suffered from using the popular JUUL brand of e-cigarette?
JUUL currently has over 70% of the e-cigarette market in the United States. The small size of the devices make them easy to conceal and allow the user to “stealth vape” in places like school and work.
The company argues that its product is aimed at adults looking for a “safer” alternative to cigarettes.
Critics, however, note that JUUL aggressively targeted teenagers and young adults with eye-catching ads on social media platforms such as Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.
JUUL also offered sweet, candy-like flavors that were popular among younger generations of users, until pressure from the Food and Drug Administration convinced the company to pull those flavors off the market.
They even have had in-school presentations for high school students, where the company claims that their product is “totally safe” and “about to be approved by the FDA.” Neither of these claims is true.
Far from harmless
Despite the claims that vaping is safer than smoking traditional cigarettes, the chemical flavorings and additives in e-cigarettes can cause significant health problems, including:
- Heart attacks or heart problems
- Lung or respiratory failure
- Severe addiction
- Nicotine poisoning
- Psychological issues
