Roughly one in four surveyed teens who were regular users of e-cigarettes said they had tried “dripping” during ‘vaping’ sessions, researchers report.
‘Vaping’ is the practice of pouring e-liquid directly onto the heating element of an e-cigarette device and inhaling — bypassing the liquid holding tank — produces thicker vapor clouds, which drippers say results in a stronger throat hit and more intense flavors.
The limited research done on dripping suggests that the high temperatures create the thicker clouds of smoke also higher levels of volatile aldehydes. These are carcinogens and can cause higher levels of already present non-nicotine toxins. MORE is NOT better!
FYI: The US Navy has banned electronic nicotine delivery systems (ENDS). So none allowed on board subs ships or aircrafts. Their motivation was the number of explosion from lithium batteries.
