New research done by the Radiology Society of North America has revealed the negative effects of vaping.
The study showed that short-term vaping with nicotine-free electronic cigarettes can affect the flow in your blood vessels.
Dr. Mina Makaryus, a pulmonologist at Northwell Plainview Hospital, says the study revealed that changes to blood vessels were reversible for first-time users. He says vaping can still hurt users' lungs.

"We've seen cases where people were vaping infrequently that developed lung injury," Makaryus said.

Doctors say the long-term effects of vaping are not yet known because it hasn't been around long enough.

Makaryus says that short-term effects of vaping can include fever, coughing, fatigue and diarrhea.

He says that people should stay away from vaping, while others like Matt Flax, still see it as a safer alternative to smoking.

Flax, who owns VaporVille in Hicksville, says anyone in doubt about how vaping may affect them should ask a doctor.
