Electronic cigarettes include “vapes”, hookah pens, or Juuls. They are battery powered devices that heat an e-liquid sometimes called “e-juice” that contains nicotine. One Juul pod contains as much nicotine as entire pack of cigarettes. The aerosol cloud produced by a JUUL may not look as thick as cigarette smoke, but it still contains harmful chemicals. The aerosol inhaled from e-cigarettes may contain nicotine, formaldehyde and acrolein
All brands of E-cigarettes are marketed to entice our teens and young adults to start this deadly habit with teen-enticing flavors such as mango, mint, cotton candy, gummy bear and cherry crush. E-cigarettes are small and easy to hide, and they look like a sleek USB flash drive.
In recent weeks, there has been reports about people ending up in the hospital with lung issues, seizures and other health concerns after vaping. There have been six confirmed deaths connected to vaping across the United States in California, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Minnesota and Oregon.
People with a history of vaping who experience lung injury symptoms should seek medical care. Symptoms include shortness of breath, fever, cough, vomiting and diarrhea.
