Potential Injuries and Health Risks from Using Juul Vape Pens
Juul vape pens or e-cigarettes have been promoted as a safe alternative to traditional cigarettes. However, the evidence is inconclusive that vaping products are safer than tobacco products.
E-cigarettes, including Juul vape pens, heat liquid to create a vapor you can inhale. The pens have batteries to supply the energy for the heating coils. The liquid or “juice” contains various ingredients, including flavoring and nicotine.
Juul lawsuits allege a link between vape pens and adverse health conditions. For example, “popcorn lung,” a severe, irreversible respiratory impairment, has been linked to some of the flavorings used in e-cigarettes and vaping products.
Other health conditions that could be linked to Juul vape pens include, but are not limited to:
- Respiratory failure
- Nicotine addiction
- Birth defects
- Seizures in young adults
- Lung disease
- Cardiovascular disease
- Heart attacks
- Mental health issues and behavior problems
- Suicidal thoughts or attempts
Research continues as experts try to determine the extent of damage consumers might experience when using vaping products. Additional adverse health conditions might be linked to Juul vape pens in the future.
