We do not know That's a bit unsatisfying as an answer, but it's the truth. Vaping is around for somewhat 13 years (invented in 2003), but the international breakthrough was so recent that no long term studies have been conducted with meaningful results. This is all there is to it. Feel free to read extracts from the studies below to get a broader ...
