It’s NOT just water vapor!

The main ingredients in e-cigarettes include nicotine, propylene glycol, vegetable glycerin, and flavorings that when heated, release aerosol particles containing toxic metals like lead, nickel, tin, and cancer causing chemicals like formaldehyde.

What’s the big deal about YOUTH & E-CIGARETTES?

 By now everyone knows smoking cigarettes is harmful to our health.  While cigarette rates continue to drop, a new tobacco product has emerged. Since 2014, e-cigarettes have been the most commonly used tobacco product in middle and high school students, creating a new generation of tobacco users.

It is known that diacetyl, one of the chemicals found in e-liquid flavors, is linked to a SERIOUS lung disease known as “popcorn lung”.  Early symptoms include coughing, wheezing and shortness of breath and the disease can lead to irreversible lung damage.

Will you take the bait?

With over 7,700 tempting flavors like gummy bears and cotton candy, e-cigarettes seem harmless.
