INTERVIEW: The Impact of Vaping


Tito had the chance to interview Dr. Mandie Svatek from UT Health San Antonio & Metro Health Anti-Vaping Coalition on the topic of vaping and the negative health effects vaping has on teens and young adults.

  • 1 in 4 High School students have been associated with vaping.
  • 1 in 10 Middle School students have been associated with vaping.

The symptoms can include coughing, shortness of breath, chest pain, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, tiredness, and fever. Vaping can also initiate lung damage which can cause severe symptoms if an e-cig user gets COVID. Vaping can also lead to use of other drug use and cause behavioral problems.
