Vapes and E-cigarettes - the real facts.


E-cigarettes are also called e-cigs, vape pens, mods and pod mods (which often look like USB drives). These devices heat a liquid into an aerosol that’s inhaled by the user. The aerosol from e-cigarettes is not just harmless water vapor. It contains a mix of potentially harmful chemicals that are not safe to breathe. Most e-cigarettes also contain nicotine. Nicotine is very addictive and can harm brain development, which continues past adolescence into the mid-20s.
