Friends or family members may have told you to wear compression stockings when flying, sitting or standing for long periods of time or generally to improve your circulation and vein health. You may have seen cheap compression socks in the grocery store or pharmacy. You may have also seen very expensive compression stockings that are custom fit to the purchaser’s needs. So, which one is useful and are there any drawbacks or risks of using compression stockings?
When vaping was first introduced in 2007, many proponents considered it a healthier alternative to smoking traditional cigarettes and tobacco which are often laced with toxic chemicals. By inhaling an aerosol of purer liquid nicotine or even THC, there would be no toxins entering the lungs.
Unfortunately, the group that has most taken to vaping has been a younger generation of more health-conscious consumers that did not want the smell and health considerations of traditional smoking, however still felt the need for nicotine or THC. As a result, while traditional smoking has been on the decline, we have seen a significant increase year after year in vaping. In fact, it is estimated that 1 in 20 Americans now use e-cigarettes.
