Hazards can refer to a large variety of potential dangers. Common hazards can include environmental hazards, health hazards, radiation, road hazards, workplace hazards, as well as other potential risks. Natural disasters, extreme weather, and animal hazards are some of the more common environmental hazards. Health hazards can range from chemical, biological, and physical agents. Radiation hazards can come in forms of direct radiation and exposure to nuclear energy, and radiation from electronics and medical equipment. Road hazards, such as potholes, defective traffic signals, and uneven shoulders can all be potentially dangerous. Lastly, workplace hazards can include loud noises, poor ventilation, inadequate lighting, wet floors, and heavy machinery. No matter what type of hazard, it is important to take safety precautions to protect yourself while at home, on the job, or while traveling.

Vaping has been linked to liver damage. Studies have found that regular exposure to e-cigarette vapor damages the liver in a number of ways. These effects include increased fat accumulation in the liver, an increase in liver enzymes, and impairment of the liver’s detoxification ability. Furthermore, the nicotine and flavorings in e-cigarettes could potentially cause liver inflammation and oxidative stress, both of which can lead to long-term damage.
