Aging is the process of becoming increasingly older. Our bodies, minds, and lives experience changes associated with advance in age. Health professionals recommend leading an active lifestyle, developing proper eating habits, maintaining a healthy emotional state, and remaining engaged in meaningful activities to promote healthy aging. As we all age, there are useful resources available to help support a healthy and productive lifestyle with age.

Vaping, or the use of e-cigarettes, has become an increasingly popular habit among young and old alike. However, while the effects of vaping on those younger than 18 are becoming increasingly well-understood, the impact of vaping on aging adults is not. Recent studies suggest that vaping may have serious effects on the aging body, increasing the risk of cancer, stroke and heart disease. Further, studies show that changes in blood pressure, oxygen flow and respiratory health may all be connected to vaping. Therefore, it is important for older adults to be aware of the potential negative impacts of vaping on their long-term health.
