Side effects

  • Dehydration

    Propylene glycol, an ingredient in vape e-liquids, causes dehydration, dry mouth, and increased thirst.

  • Nosebleeds

    Because many vapers exhale through their nose, propylene glycol, a vape e-liquid ingredient, dehydrates the inside of the nostrils, leading to frequent nosebleeds.

  • Mouth sores

    E-cigs interrupt the body’s immune system, which may cause mouth sores or wounds that won’t heal.

  • Mucociliary dysfunction

    Vaping irritates the throat and impairs the body’s ability to move and expel mucus and phlegm, causing vapers to clear their throats excessively.
