A recent report by the World Health Organization found that vaping devices emit about 3.7 million tons of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere every year, a figure that’s rising faster than any other industrial sector.
That’s a significant contribution to climate change.
The WHO’s report says that the average electronic cigarette contains up to 2.8 pounds of carbon emissions.
In a statement on Monday, the World Lung Foundation, an advocacy group that has tracked e-cigarettes’ emissions, said that they’re also a big source of aerosol pollution in the air.
E-cigarettes are widely seen as a safer alternative to traditional cigarettes, but they also can cause lung cancer and other health problems, particularly among young people.
The organization estimates that about one in five smokers try to quit.
The group says that more than 80 percent of those who try to stop using an electronic cigarette eventually quit.
“Smokers who are more than 20 years old are more likely to continue to use electronic cigarettes, despite the fact that they are less harmful to health and have fewer harmful health effects,” the statement says.
The World Lung foundation also says that many older smokers who are using e-cigs are also likely to get lung cancer as a result of the use of e-liquid, particularly if they’re heavy smokers.
“As they age, these older smokers are more susceptible to inhaling these harmful particles,” the organization said.
A 2014 study in the journal Pediatrics found that the use and uptake of electronic cigarettes by children is up 50 percent since 2012, and that the increase is more dramatic for girls and young women.
Ectothermics and ecig-friendly brands have become a growing trend in the past year.
Many companies have announced they’re transitioning to a zero-tolerance policy for e-cig use.
Earlier this year, Vape Wild, the leading manufacturer of e.liquids and e-juice, announced that it was banning e-liquid sales and distribution, as well as vaping accessories and accessories for e.cig products.
Last month, the UK’s Office for National Statistics announced that e-vapor sales were up 30 percent from last year.
Vaping has become a popular alternative to tobacco cigarettes in recent years, thanks to the widespread availability of eJuice and other vaping products.
In addition to helping smokers quit, e-mills have also been shown to help reduce the risk of cancer and cardiovascular disease, according to the CDC.
