What You Should Know About
Electronic nicotine delivery systems (ENDS), such as e-cigarettes, are smoking devices that are designed to simulate the sensation of smoking. Many e-liquid solutions contain nicotine, the addictive substance found in tobacco.
Here are some associated risks of e-cigarette use:
Vapor from e-cigarettes is not harmless.
Aerosols can contain nicotine, heavy metals, and cancer-causing agents.
Aerosols have high concentrations of ultrafine particles, which may worsen respiratory conditions and constrict arteries.
Addiction: Nicotine is highly addictive.
Impaired youth brain development.
E-cigarettes are the most commonly used tobacco product among Hoosier youth.
The concentration of nicotine in e-liquid solutions can cause overdosing or poisoning.
“Vaping” is Not the Solution.
E-cigarettes are not safe.
There is no conclusive scientific evidence that e-cigarettes are safe. E-cigarettes are being incorrectly promoted as a quit aid, but these devices are not approved as a cessation aid by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
E-cigarettes are NOT FDA-approved cessation aids.
The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine have reported that there is conclusive evidence that e-cigarette use indoors increases airborne concentrations of nicotine and particulate matter from secondhand aerosol.
There are proven quit strategies and treatments available – counseling and FDA approved medications have been shown to help tobacco users quit successfully. 1.800.Quit.Now can help you quit e-cigarettes.
