Study:  Vaping Impacts Adolescent Hearts of Males More than Females
A recent study by The Ohio State University College of Medicine demonstrated that vaping might have more detrimental effects for male adolescent cardiovascular health than for adolescent female hearts.

We don’t know the long-term effects of vaping because it’s only been around since the early 2000’s,” said Researcher Loren Wold.  While this study was done with mice, it can offer insight about how vaping impacts young bodies.

One theory is that female bodies contain an enzyme which breaks down nicotine faster, and offers extra protection against long-term effects.  But that doesn’t mean that nicotine doesn’t hurt females – it still does.
