The study says non-smokers who regularly use e-cigs have a 29 percent higher risk of stroke and 25 percent higher risk of heart attack. For those who smoke regular cigarettes AND use e-cigs, the risk jumps up to 60-70 percent. This is crazy because I thought E-cigs was a healthier way of smoking other than the traditional cigarettes!

Recently, the CDC began to crack down on the use of e-cigs by young people, with reports that up to 11 percent of high school students have used a vape in the last month. Lots of people posted their opinion on the use of these products.

Are you an e-cig user?  Does this make you want to quit using them all together?
