causes ingrown toenails too .......... NOT
Um, I'd guess: no, no, maybe, too vague, possibly, and resounding no.
Check this out:
Health and Medical Issues
Can't say for sure about migraines since there are various triggers for different people. As far as cancer, the alternatives are quitting entirely, or smoking, which has been proven to cause cancer. I think I will press my luck with vaping. Studies have shown risk factors for brain tumors include ionizing radiation from high dose X-rays, and possibly family history. There is still much that needs to be studied, but it's pretty much luck of the draw. I have done a lot of reading on the subject since I ended up drawing the short straw. Had surgery in February, radiation in April, and started my first cycle of chemo last week. Started vaping in April because it is the lesser of two evils. If you would like information on the possible health issues of vaping check out the health and medical issues board. You'll probably get better answers there, or have a discussion with your doctor. BTW, my doctor is hugely in favor of it.
I find that if I don't drink enough water when I'm vaping heavily, I'm subject to lightheadedness. When I first got started vaping, I popped out of bed in the middle of the night, got a huge headrush, and fell over. It was pretty scary. However, I found that if I drink a lot of water when I'm vaping heavily, I'm fine.
Yes .. the brain is effected immediately by a slowly building need to buy more equipment and liquid .. as well, an addiction to the ECF website is a by-product ..
LOL... oh come on don't be so mean.
But ya what LucentShadow said. I feel about 100x better than when I was smoking cigarettes soo... If they're any concerns well we all gotta die one day! & more often than not the air we breathe isn't all that squeaky clean either.
But really most "side effects" people experience are more related to quitting smoking than vaping. You do need to drink a lot more water when you vape though... can be a bit dehydrating.

Slow building need? Mine must be in overdrive then! As for affecting the brain, my eyes go wonky...wait that's from reading so much and not due to vaping.
