The reason for this research are based on one common things which related to combustible counterparts : nicotine.
Undeniable, the research on this are still going on to determine if this association is merely casual, it is very important to note even though e-cigarettes doesn’t contain tobacco, this battery powered devices do deliver nicotine in aerosol foam.
Says K.Vendrell Rankin, director of Texas A&M University Baylor College of Dentistry’s Tobacco Treatment Services -” Any range of age are expose to nicotine addicted but the effect to adolescents, the stakes are even higher”.
Progress of Brain
Mental health as well as key emotional and cognitive systems are one of most important issue for teens.
Quoted the words from Rankin, professor and associate chair in public health sciences at TAMBCD-” Major cognitive functions and attention performance are in developing process during adolescence.Nicotine will increase the risk of developing a psychiatric disorders and also lasting cognitive impairment and consequently resulting disturbance in working memory and attention”.
“In condition reliance on nicotine to manage negative emotions and situations will impairs development of coping skills”, he added.
Nicotine is one of highly addictive item which may affect teens emotion and cognitive development.

This because, nicotine in any form will triggers the release of neurotransmitters such as adrenaline and dopamine, which impacts to body systems. Dopamine will floods the barin and nicotine will increase the cravings.
