Many teens believe vaping is safer than smoking cigarettes, but it's not!

Part of the problem is they don't realize what's in vaping products.

What's Really in an E-Cigarette?

  • Nicotine, which is addictive and can harm
    brain development 

  • Ultrafine particles are inhaled deep into lungs 

  • Flavoring such as diacetyl, a chemical linked
    to a serious lung disease 

  • Volatile organic compounds 

  • Cancer-causing chemicals 

  • Chemicals that can lead to heart disease, COPD and asthma

  • Heavy metals such as nickel, tin, and lead

Secondhand vapor is harmful too!

According to the American Lung Association, "In 2016, the Surgeon General concluded that secondhand emissions contain, "nicotine; ultrafine particles; flavorings such as diacetyl, a chemical linked to serious lung disease; volatile organic compounds such as benzene, which is found in car exhaust; and heavy metals, such as nickel, tin, and lead."
