Poster

Scholastic Contest Winner – Middle School


A poster based on the winning middle 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: --Nicotine from e-cigarettes reaches the brain within 10 seconds. --Teens who vape may not realize how much nicotine they are exposing their brain to in a single session. --Exposure to nicotine as a teen can cause short-term and long-term effects on attention, learning, and memory that promote addiction to nicotine. --Nicotine exposure as a teen can cause long-term changes in brain structure and activity that remain after exposure to nicotine has ended. These changes occur in parts of the brain responsible for addiction, learning, and memory. --E-cigarette aerosol exposure may damage the respiratory system by negatively affecting lung cellular and organ physiology and immune function. --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. --Fruit flavored e-cigarettes with or without nicotine may have higher levels of acrylonitrile. Acrylonitrile is a carcinogen and respiratory irritant. --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.
