A recent study found concerning evidence of vaping’s potential to compromise the immune systems of exposed youth. The study, conducted by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, found that youth who vape are more likely to show signs of immune system suppression including reduced activity of certain white blood cells than non-vapers. This immune system suppression could potentially open exposed youth to infection and may worsen existing health problems. Additionally, the researchers found that vaping by youth can increase their exposure to harmful contaminants and chemicals contained in the aerosol. Vaping can potentially have serious implications for youth health and well-being, and should be taken seriously.
