E-cigarettes are devices that use a battery to heat a liquid nicotine solution ("e-liquid'). The heated e-liquid creates an aerosol that is breathed into the lungs. E-cigarettes go by other names such as e-cigs, e- hookahs, hookah pens, vapes, vape pens or mods. They come in many shapes and sizes. Some can only be used once, while others can be refilled. Others have a tank which may hold large amounts of e-liquid containing nicotine, flavorings, and other chemicals. Why are they dangerous? E-cigarettes contain nicotine and chemicals that can cause cancer, birth defects or other health problems. E-cigarettes and e-liquids come in fruit and candy flavors that appeal to children who may taste or drink the e-liquid. E-liquids are poisonous if swallowed, and are harmful if the liquid gets on skin or in the eyes. The e-cigarette batteries are also poisonous if swallowed. h ren't they safer than tobacco cigarettes? E-cigarettes contain harmful chemicals, but not as many as regular cigarettes. E-cigarettes produce an aerosol, not water vapor. The aerosol is a mixture of chemicals and small particles that can hurt the lungs just like cigarette smoke. E-cigarettes are just as addictive as regular cigarettes. People can become addicted to nicotine from using e-cigarettes and then may start using regular cigarettes. Do E-cigarettes help smokers quit? " Studies show that they do not help people quit smoking cigarettes. Instead, many people end up using both products. Are they safe to smoke indoors? No. E-cigarettes pollute the air with tiny particles that get trapped in the lungs. Just like regular cigarettes, the pollution from e-cigarettes may hurt others. Here is what you need to know about e-cigarettes: • They often look like regular cigarettes. • They give off a vapor instead of smoke. The vapor comes from heating a liquid. • The liquid usually has nicotine and other chemicals. • Most e-cigarettes have nicotine, just like regular cigarettes and o her,tob.acco ducts. • Nicotine is very, addieti ce . • Once you start, it is very hard to stop. • Tests show some e-cigarette liquids have toxins such as antifreeze. • Tests have found other chemicals too. Some of them are known to cause cancer. • Pure nicotine is a poison that can kill. • There are no rules or safety labels or childproofing on e-cigarettes or the liquid refill packages. This puts children and pets at risk. • The nicotine and other chemicals in one brand can be much higher or lower than in another. • Tests have shown nicotine is in some brands that claim to be nicotine-free. • People who buy them do not know what they are really getting. • E-cigarettes are very new. No one really knows how harmful they are. • Long-term studies on the health effects have not been done. • There is no proof that the vapor is safe for the person - smoking, or for those who breathe the secondhand vapor. • There is no proof that e-cigarettes can help a person stop smoking. • Some studies suggest they may keep smokers hooked. • They-may also cause people who have quit smoking to start again.
