Research has shown vaping is harmful to thinking

Two new studies by the University of Rochester Medical Center show there is a link between vaping

and confusion. People who use vapes are more likely to have trouble concentrating, remembering, making decisions.

Previously, similar connections were found in animals.New research is describing correlations in humans for the first time. “Our work adds further evidence that vaping should not be considered a safe alternative to smoking tobacco,” the authors say.

The studies analyzed data from dozensthousands of people. It turned out that regardless of age, people who smoked and vaped were more likely to report problems with thought functions. Vaping is especially bad for people who started doing it between the ages of 8 and 13.
