How do e-cigarettes affect the brain and teen health


The nicotine in e-liquids will absorb from the lungs into the bloodstream when a person uses an e-cigarette. Once entering the blood, nicotine stimulates the adrenal glands to release the hormone epinephrine.
Epinephrine stimulates the central nervous system and increases blood pressure, and heartbeats. As with most addictive substances, nicotine activates the brain’s reward circuits and also increases levels of a chemical messenger in the brain called ‘dopamine’. Pleasure caused by nicotine’s interaction with the reward circuit encourages some people to use it all over again, even though will risk their health and brain.

The teen ages are critical for brain development, which continues into young adulthood. Young people who use nicotine products in any form, including e-cigarettes are more risky for long-lasting effects. It is because nicotine affects the development of the brain's reward system, continued e-cigarette use can not only lead to nicotine addiction, but it also can make other drugs such as cocaine and methamphetamine more pleasurable to a teen's developing brain.

Nicotine also can affect the development of brain circuits that control attention and learning. Moreover the risks include mood disorders and permanent problems with impulse control failure to fight an urge or impulse that may harm oneself or others.
