The Truth About Vaping
Vaping and e-cigarettes are in the news a lot these days. Some people claim e-cigarettes are safer than regular cigarettes and that vaping is healthier for you than smoking. But let’s look at some facts:
One Juul pod has the same amount of nicotine as a pack of cigarettes. Nicotine is highly addictive and can damage developing brains in people under the age of 25.
Some studies have found e-cigarettes can contain lead, nickel, formaldehyde and other ingredients linked to cancer and other serious conditions.
If you vape, you’re four times more likely to start smoking cigarettes than if you don’t vape.
E-cigarette companies are targeting teens and young adults. If you look at their social media, the events they sponsor and the flavors they offer, it’s clear who they’re going after—even if they claim otherwise.
The truth is that e-cigarettes and vaping are dangerous: for adults, for teens, for everyone.
