    Vaping flavors may worsen addiction

    Flavors added to vaping products, if they contain a certain type of sweetener, may do more than just appeal to young people; they may worsen the addiction.

    Animal research has also shown that acetaldehyde, another chemical in tobacco smoke created by the burning of sugars added as sweeteners, dramatically increases the reinforcing properties of nicotine and may also contribute to tobacco addiction.

    sugar addiction. I am really so tired of the government banning everything, taking care of me and making all my personal decisions. I don't smoke, don't enjoy it but it is not up to government to determine what I can do and what I can't.

    I'm not gonna say berry flavors and whatever else are specifically marketed to get the kids hooked but I do think they'll be much more likely to try something they know won't leave a bad taste in thier mouth.

    I've never particuarly liked the flavor of a cig, the first hit of the first one of the day always, but from there I never smoked for the taste it was for the relief of the growing tension, having not had a cigarette in 5 minutes.

    Dip I do like the taste of and it's more concentrated on the nicotine so it was harder to quit.

    I'm betting something like cotton candy or blueberry smash will be harder still for anyone hooked on it, especially kids who first tried it because they were enticed by the flavor.

    The only issue I see is insurance must pay for any medical treatment. End that and the "problem" will solve itself

    Hey, maybe vaping will kill off the millennials before they can cause problems.

    In other words, I don't care, if they want to breathe that crap into their lungs, then more power to them.

    Vaping has became very popular and has taken a large market share from tobacco sales.Pull all vapes off the shelves immediately yet that huge rack of cigarettes at the local convenience market are still there. Something stinks here and I think it is big tobacco money.

    * I don't think either are good for anyone, just sayin'. But,that's your choice right? Just like alcohol vs marijuana neither are good but one has a fat wallet therefore it is accepted.

    Dang!

    Not ALL vapes are filled with nicotine or thc.

    Some vapes are just 'flavored juice'.

    you might care when they end up in your local emergency rooms or hospital beds .. not able to pay of course and driving your costs up. that was the problem with tobacco .. smokers that finally get sick are tough to treat and take longer times to recover. also they have the nicotine or vape monkey on their backs. same with any destructive addiction I guess.
