    It's a dangerous trend.

    At least there is published data on the dangers of tobacco.

    No one knows what the long term affects of vaping is.
    It could be worse long term than smoking.

    This bad. Not good.

    Don't believe the "vaping is safe" bullshit that is force fed down everyone's throat.

    it is true that long term (10+ years) effects are not know. to believe otherwise would not be a smart move.

    by the looks of things its much safer than smoking, but hindsight is 20/20.

    He's saying that we don't know 100% if vaping is safe, though with saying that all we do know is that it is safer than traditional cigarettes. There will be more information available to all of us very shortly. And more to the point of temperature control as well. Till Professor long name (someone can help me here) proves that vaping is safe. Don't count them chickens to anyone. Especially and never to under age smokers. I hope you understand that when anyone mentions vaping is safe with 100% information in their hands and its OK for under aged smokers to take on, all it does is ruin our chances of even getting the information WE as vapers require to know for OUR own future.

    Look. As long as smoke/vape is coming out of a child that is 4ft high, i don't think it's a good look myself. That's my personal opinion. And opinions are like bums (without being rude). Everyone has one

    No one knows at the moment.

    The main things that have been noted with people that have vaped >3-4 years are:
    - Lowered metabolism
    - Acrolein sensitivity leading to "Asian flushing"
    - Hormone inbalances

    The problem is whether they are trends or statistical noise.
    Answers are complicated with the fact that users are generally smokers who have pre-existing conditions.
