Lung Love Foundation was created after Chance Ammirata almost lost his life to Juuling. After his near death experience he took to social media to spread awareness of the dangers of vaping. It has become an epidemic more widespread than most can imagine. Now this foundation has one goal, and that is to effectively put this epidemic to an end through education , spreading awareness, and giving those teens who have fallen into the trap of nicotine addiction the resources to quit.
We are currently working with the city of Miami Beach to implement our first education curriculum starting locally in fifth grade to educate our youth about the dangers of vaping. We firmly believe had their been more discussions about the dangers of vaping this epidemic may have been avoided. Yet it isn't to late!
LETS NOT REPEAT HISTORY.
We are taught history in school in order to learn from the mistakes we made in the past , and avoid repeating them. It's now clear to me that history is so evidently being repeated.
Cigarettes were the Juul of our parents and grandparents generation. They became tremendously popular, people were able to smoke anywhere, and they were "cool" to have; it was a fad. Not until we learned about the horrible affects cigarettes actually had did people begin to stop, but it was much too late.
According to cdc.gov "Worldwide, tobacco use causes more than 7 million deaths per year. If the pattern of smoking all over the globe doesn’t change, more than 8 million people a year will die from diseases related to tobacco use by 2030." Now cigarette usage is down tremendously , but Juul and other vape companies saw this as an opportunity to create a modern day cigarette that would appeal to the youth.
According to The Tobacco Atlas, estimates of revenues from the global tobacco industry likely approach a half trillion U.S. dollars annually. With numbers like that it is obvious as to why Juul tried to recreate a horrible epidemic that has already ravaged humanity previously. Sleek designs, electronically charged, and to make sure they were able to hook us each pod contains 5 packs of cigarettes worth of nicotine.
