Negative Side Effects Of E Cigarettes
count the ways: Nicotine paralizes cilia in lung causes more serious infections, cough, gross phlegm. Co weakens you and has the same effect as anemia. The smoke destroys the lung leading to emphesema. Your skin gets coarse and premature aging. Teeth/fingers get yellow. You smell gross. Oh yes, cancer of lungs, mouth, stomach and other organs. Also, anxiety, depression. But it might look cool. ...Read more
See below: E-cigarettes contain only nicotine vapor. They don't contain tobacco. Nicotine does not cause lung cancer or heart disease. It is the 200+chemicals produced when tobacco burns that cause disease. So E-cigaretts are much safer that tobacco. However, E-cigaretts can be just as addicting as tobacco and there is concern that they are being heavily promoted towards young adults>lead to smoking tobacco. ...Read more
Nicotine: E-cig contains nicotine but not tar. All the effects of nicotine are still there including addiction. You can easily google the effects of nicotine. I, for one, think that e-cig is not for fad, but for treatment for smokers to be able to quit smoking more safely by using e-cig at decreasing doses and decreasing quantity. ...Read more
That's the problem: Tobacco companies producing e-cigs have not had to do any research because courts ruled that it is just another kind of cigarette, and the fda has no jurisdiction. The propellant is propylene glycol, which is in an oil. What this does when inhaled is simply unknown in humans. The additives, flavorings, preservatives and whatever else is in them also have not been studied. We simply cannot say now. ...Read more
Nicotine: The e-cigarette still contain nicotine but not the tar. The side effects of nicotine that include vasoconstriction, and high bp, atherosclerotic effect, osteoporotic effect, gastritis and ulcer development, are still going to be there. In short, e-cigarette is used to wean down smoking to zero but not a permanent substitute for smoking, it still will be addicting. ...Read more
How safe are electronic cigarettes? (and compared to cigarettes as well?) any long term effects? Any side effects? Thank you very much! :)
Flavor = Risk: The risk is in the liquid. How much safer are tobacco flavored liquids? Probably some but you are still inhaling tobacco. Non-tobacco flavors are PROBABLY safer but it’s one thing to eat strawberries, it’s quite another to inhale them. We do not know the long-term effects of inhaling strawberries. The safest liquids are flavorless. Experienced "Vapers" make their own liquids to be sure. ...Read more
What are the side effects of smoking weed and cigarettes but taking a break from weed and start to smoke cigarettes more?
Respiratory/heart: Neither is good to use, so taking "a break" from both would have the side effect of better health. Smoking tobacco or weed creates the same dilemma for lung health -inhaling partially combusted botanical material laced with chemicals. Equally, cardiovascular health is compromised by using either. Infections occur more frequently in smokers too. So quit both & try not to rationalize their use. ...Read more
Could you tell me if my dad suddenly stopped smoking cigarettes would he have any bad side effects?
What is the side effects of Nicotine Gum? And For how long I can use it? It is better than smoking cigarettes?
Nicotine gum: Is better than cigarettes but not by much. If you keep using it you will keep ingesting nicotine. Please consider finding a support group at a local hospital to help you stop smoking completely. Set a target date to stop, chew gum, drink water, to satisfy oral cravings. Please see your doctor for support. You can do it and will be glad that you did. Peace and good health. ...Read more
Let me help: E-cigs may be particularly appealing to kids and may encourage nicotine addiction among young people. And while manufacturers of the e-cigarette claim that it's the cigarette you can "smoke" anywhere, regulatory agencies around the world are taking a close look at these gadgets and instituting a range of restrictions on their use. ...Read more
Nope, none: Any vaccine injection can result in a little pain at the injection site. But that's the only side effect of Gardasil®, the HPV vaccine. Don't let fear of side effects prevent you from being immunized. That said, you may be old enough that you don't need it. HPV immunizatio is not recommended beyond age 26, since new HPV infections are uncommon. Discuss with your doctor. ...Read more
Not much: It can serve forever if you take good care of it. The disadvantage is that if you get a chronic kidney disease, the longevity of having one kidney function is less than that of 2 kidney functions. Not your survival, the kidney function survival is what's at stake if you develop a disease in it. Kidney donors' function survival is excellent because they go through work up to ensure appropriateness. ...Read more
"side effects??? ": I don;t think I would consider chronic bronchitis and emphysema (COPD), being unable to get enough oxygen and going into heart failure, developing arteriosclerosis and having heart attack or stroke, or getting any of large number of cancers (mostly lung, head and neck, but many others) to be "side effects." They are the complications of using a poisonous substance over time. And there are more. ...Read more

What does molly consist of and what are the positive and negative side effects. Can you die from taking this drug?
What are some 7 day crash diet negative side effects? I have a headache and this is my 2nd day on dr. Furhmans diet
They don't work: They don't call them "crash" for nothing. Your metabolism will crash as you drastically & abruptly alter your nutritional status, sometimes with the addition of drugs. I am unfamiliar with the specific diet you name, but any diet which involves depletion of nutrients (not just "empty" calories) will cause adverse effects--consider prisoner-of-war health issues arising from extreme "diets". ...Read more
On 37.5 mg started today. So far not to many negative side effects. Klenopin if anxiety gets to bad. How long till side eff goes away?
Need to name Rx: You need to name the Rx. Also, it's good the effects are not too bad. The durations are often quite individualistic but a nice thing I've observed is that the fortunate ones are fortunate there too. Not too bad may mean not too long! ...Read more
I wore 25% Deet for 2 weeks while hiking in Central America. This was a month ago. If I had negative side effects, would they have shown up by now?
Don't worry: High concentration DEET insect repellent can be alarming - the spray melts some plastics including BPA free water bottles - but if you have been fine for a month after returning from your trip you are not having a reaction to the DEET. ...Read more
I go to bed at 3-4am. Wake up at 12-1pm. Does this late schedule have a negative effect on health? What are the side effects of this lifestyle? I'm 26
Delayed sleep phase: Based upon your sleep schedule you appear to have a circadian rhythms disturbance known as delayed sleep phase disorder. This condition does not pose any negative health implications but simply indicates that your circadian rhythm or internal clock is set for a bedtime that is later in time, i.e., 3-4 am, and a wake time that is approximately 8 hours later. ...Read more

Some side effects: I have not heard of being ravenous as a side effect, but side effects may occur. The most common might be nausea, but this is more likely if taken on an empty stomach. It is also not unusual for people to be allergic to vitamins- many contain soy, corn, gluten or other allergenic substances and some also react to fillers and binders like magnesium stearate. Hypoallergenic vitamins are available. ...Read more
Many!: Apart from disease, it makes sex less special. This a major problem today. Violence can be desensitized, but sex and it's importance can be too! I do not believe in too much sex between couples. The exact opposite is true: I believe that too much sex between " partners" diminishes the importance of sex between lovers. That is a sham! ...Read more

Yes.: All medications have the potential for negative side effects. More common side effects include dizziness, lethargy, drugged feeling and headache. More serious side effects can include retrograde (going backward) or anterograde (going forward) amnesia, hallucinations, complex sleep-related behavior, worsening depression and suicidal ideation. ...Read more
Here's a few: If you don't have a partner, you will usually find you need to masturbate. It won't increase your circle of friends, but it won't make you sick or a bad person. Vary your grip -- otherwise it may be harder in the long run for you to be successful with some partners. Especially, if you've decided to save sex for that one special person, you're making a great decision. ...Read more
