So now that it’s been documented that vaping is dangerous to your health, the next step to follow is for health insurance companies to charge more for those who take up the nasty habit.  

Currently, Kansas tobacco users are charged up to 50% more for their health insurance compared to non-smokers. 

Because e-cigarettes were first promoted as a safe smoking cessation tool, we assume manufacturers were able to escape from it being closely evaluated. But the truth is, vaping doesn’t help smokers kick the habit. And its high nicotine and chemical content are causing all sorts of lung-related illnesses, just as with tobacco products.
