The problem of the so-called wapow — or electronic cigarettes, no matter get the scale. In March 2018, a 17-year-old from Nevada exploded vaping in my mouth — it burned lips, broken jaw and punched a hole in the chin, some teeth had to be removed. The explosion was powerful. It was the first reported case of explosion of electronic cigarette, which caused damage to a teenager. But it may follow, and others you probably heard about what is happening.
Why blow up weepy?
Over the last 20 years electronic cigarette has gained wild popularity — they are served as a healthy alternative to traditional cigarettes. But how great it is — let us reason together. From 2015 to 2017 in the US there were 2035 cases of emergency service due to the explosion of vaping. In Russia, weepy while only gaining popularity, but you can guess where this is going. Most of the explosions occurred during the use of cigarettes can imagine how unpleasant it is. Was and two deaths. In one case earlier this year, the shrapnel from the explosion cut the carotid artery of a man from Texas, and in 2018 the shard went into the man’s head. Children don’t know that it can happen. Parents don’t know that it can happen. Added to this the fact that wapi are in the most “intimate” places — in your mouth or pocket.
I believe that the cause of the explosion of vaping is a lithium battery — the same that explodes in cell phones on airplanes and Segways. Do lithium batteries have a positive and negative end, which, as a rule, are separated by a very thin piece of plastic that is conductive to the ions. But if this piece of plastic will break, the chemicals inside the battery will begin to heat up. This is especially dangerous in the case of vaping, because inside “swill” is also quite “volatile”. It may not burn in the normal sense of the word, but not extinguish the explosion of the battery.
Worst of all, as parents try to get kids to quit Smoking regular cigarettes, they can buy them VAPI as a “safe alternative”. VAPI not illegal to sell, do not require licenses, and even allowed to “eat” in public places — soar, where I want, not prohibited by law.
Well, perhaps vaping is a good alternative of cigarettes. If only this alternative does not explode in your mouth.
