Vaping Affects Lung Function – Covid 19

Health experts say smokers and vapers not only have a higher risk of suffering the effects of coronavirus but also spreading it to others. COVID-19 is a respiratory disease that impairs breathing, so smoking may increase the risk of Coronavirus complications.

Vaping Affects Lung Function Among People?

Vaping is no different from Smoking. Vaping or e-cigarettes are mostly common among people. While there are not a lot of analysis about the long term effect of e-cigarettes due them being relatively new, researches do know that these contents contain a large amount of nicotine which if swallowed can cause serious damage to the body such as lungs. Also studies show that vaping can cause COPD, asthma and lung cancer which is why health experts strongly recommend a stronger regulation against vaping especially among the youth. The Daily Sabah comments that it only takes 20 minutes for the heart to return to its normal resting rate and it
takes 72 hours for healthy cells to be replaced so with quitting vaping and smoking you can regain normal blood pressure and blood circulation and healthy lungs.

E-cigarettes are still relatively new, and researchers need to conduct more analysis over a more extended period to know what the long-term effects may be. What they do know is that these products contain high concentrations of nicotine, which if swallowed, can be poisonous and cause side effects such as seizures in lungs mainly in the yound adults and teens.

A recent study in the journal Cancer Prevention Research, found that just one month of vaping altered the lungs of people who had never vaped before. The research team discovered that the lungs of people in the vaping group did see some small changes in inflammation over the course of four weeks.

Keep in mind that it is best to seek professional help if the symptoms lasted for a long time.
