    Young people soon won't be able to "vape" at all. A new law has recently been passed that makes it illegal for a merchant to sell vaping products to anyone under the age of 21.

    From what I have read it is just certain vaping products that are dangerous - not all of them. People should do some research on this and only continue vaping when they are happy in the knowledge that their particular purchase is a safe one.

    For the same reason people are still smoking (albeit in lower numbers) despite the millions of deaths due to tobacco use (rather than just half a dozen from vaping.)

    Nicotine is very addictive. People figure they will quit in a few years, or 20 years, before it has time to hurt them.  People figure it won't happen to them.  People figure that they're going to die anyway, so they may as well enjoy life while they can.

      Nicotine is extremely addictive. But as with most addictive substances, some people are more or less susceptible to it.

    For the obvious reasons: manufacturers are dishonest and put addictive chemicals in the stuff.

    Your lungs are meant to breathe clean air only.

      Nicotine is addictive. This isn't any kind of secret.

    "The only way to keep your health is to eat what you don't want, drink what you don't like, and do what you'd rather not." - Mark Twain, American Author 1835-1910

    Vaping is not 100% safe. Life is not 100% safe either. We're all going to die and the only questions are how,when, where. Vaping can be dangerous. Batteries explode, chemicals can have contaminants, people could have medical conditions affected by vaping. Ethanol alcohol is a poison.  Fatty foods, lack of exercise, vitamin deficiencies, and on and on.

    People vape because they choose to do so.

    Vaping is not dangerous. Contamination and toxins in the vape fluid is what's dangerous. If the vape fluid is properly made, it is not any more dangerous than breathing air in cities.

      And we don't yet KNOW how dangerous it might be.  The dangers of tobacco weren't fully known for hundreds of years.

    Vaping was originally marketed as a safe alternative, so people latched on. It's only now that they're realizing that it's possibly even worse.
