A poster based on the winning high school design in the “Vaping’s Not My Thing” student contest. This poster was originally designed by a student and was inspired by the student’s thoughts on vaping and their interpretation of the health consequences of youth use of e-cigarettes. The information in this poster is based upon the following scientific facts: --Teens who vape are more likely to start smoking cigarettes. --Teens who vape may end up addicted to nicotine faster than teens who smoke. Vapes may be used more frequently because they are easier to hide and may expose users to more nicotine. --E-cigarette aerosol exposure may damage the respiratory system by negatively affecting lung cellular and organ physiology and immune function. --Some e-liquids and e-cigarette aerosols contain chemicals that have been reported to damage lung cells in laboratory studies. --Teens who vape may be exposed to toxic chemicals such as: acrylonitrile, acrolein, propylene oxide, acrylamide, and crotonaldehyde. --Vaping can deliver metal particles, like nickel, lead, chromium, tin, and aluminum, into your lungs. --Known and suspected carcinogens such as formaldehyde and acetaldehyde have been identified in some e-cigarette aerosols. Formaldehyde can cause irritation of the skin, eyes, and throat. --Fruit flavored e-cigarettes with or without nicotine may have higher levels of acrylonitrile. Acrylonitrile is a carcinogen and respiratory irritant.
