JUUL and other types of electronic cigarettes – which are sometimes called e-cigs, vape pens, mods, or tank systems – were marketed and sold to consumers as a harmless substitute for traditional tobacco cigarettes. Now, these products have been linked to thousands of product liability cases involving consumers who have suffered major health issues or death due to vaping.
E-cigarettes like JUUL often contain potentially damaging additives, including vitamin E acetate and diacetyl, which can cause inflammation when vaporized and have a high toxicity. Health problems that have been connected to e-cigarettes and vaping include:
- Popcorn lung (bronchiolitis obliterans)
- BOOP (bronchiolitis obliterans organizing pneumonia)
- COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease)
- Heart attack
- Respiratory failure
- Collapsed lung
- Death due to any of the above
- Nicotine addiction

What are the dangers of vaping? How do e-cigarettes affect your health?
Vaping with JUUL and other types of e-cigarettes can have a negative impact on your health due to their harmful and potentially toxic ingredients. Many e-cigarettes contain:
- The same amount of addictive nicotine as an entire pack of traditional cigarettes
- Diacetyl, which has been associated with lung disease
- Heavy metals, including nickel, tin, and lead
- Damaging microparticles that can be inhaled deep into the lungs
- Volatile organic compounds that may cause cancer
Nicotine addiction is also a danger associated with vaping, especially for children and teens who are more prone to addictive habits because their brains aren’t fully developed. This is why companies like JUUL Labs Inc. and other e-cigarette manufactures should be held accountable. Not only did they create fruit-flavored vaping products that were attractive to children and teens, they marketed vaping as a safe alternative to cigarettes even though they come with their own health risks. Furthermore, there have been cases of consumers sustaining severe injuries when their e-cigarette batteries exploded or caught on fire.
What are the side effects of vaping with JUUL e-cigarettes?
Whether they contain nicotine, THC or synthetic cannabinoids, vaping with JUUL or other types of e-cigarettes can come with health risks. Some of the common symptoms that may suggest a serious health issue due to vaping include:
- Sharp pain in the lungs
- Chest pain
- Shortness of breath
- Chronic cough
- Sore throat
- Vomiting / Nausea
