Don’t be fooled-E-cigarettes are Dangerous!

Addictive

In addition to containing toxic substances,

  • E-cigarettes and e-juices contain addictive levels of nicotine.
  • Nicotine is as addictive as heroin and cocaine.
  • Despite widespread claims by e-cigarette advocates, there’s no scientific evidence that e-cigarettes help smokers successfully quit or reduce their use of traditional cigarettes.
  • E-cigarettes have NOT been proven safe or effective by the FDA as a quit-smoking aid.GummyBearJuice

Not safe

E-cigarettes and e-juice are not tested or regulated. You really don’t know what you’re inhaling.

  • Nicotine affects the heart and central nervous systems, raising the pulse and blood pressure.
  • Nicotine adversely affects maternal and fetal health during pregnancy, contributing to low birth weight, pre-term delivery, and stillbirth.
  • Teenage exposure to nicotine may harm brain development and predispose youth to future tobacco use.
  • The vapor emitted by an e-cigarette has been found to contain several cancer causing chemicals, such as formaldehyde, acetaldehyde, lead, nickel, and chromium.
  • Though the quantity of these harmful compounds is often less than that in conventional cigarette smoke, at least sodium, iron, aluminum, and nickel have been found in higherconcentrations in emitted vapor than in cigarette smoke.
