Teens and Nicotine, a Bad Partnership
Dr. Michael Hernandez
There are consequences of smoking nicotine. Michael Hernandez, Critical Care & Pulmonary Medicine Physician, at South Miami Hospital, says some of the effects are increased heart rate and increased blood pressure.
He points out e-cigarettes are built as a cleaner delivery device, but there is a problem with them and that is there are other things within the liquid, other than nicotine, whose long-term side effects are unknown by experts.
In the heating coils of these e-cigarettes there are heavy metals, such as tin and arsenic.
