You may have heard that vaping is safe. That it’s just water. That there are no harmful effects on your body. But the truth is, it’s not just water. We don’t know for sure how harmful vaping is, so we’re not here to lecture you.  But not everything is up for debate.  

 

BUT FIRST, LET'S CLEAR THE AIR...

We get it. We know that many people think vaping may be better for you than smoking cigarettes. That it’s being used as a technique for smoking cessation. But you know what’s healthier than vaping?  Not vaping.

We can't reverse the past, but we do have control over our future. Below is a list of things that were once thought to be safe, but have since been proven to be detrimental to our health.

 

Cigarettes

In 1954, a national poll took place asking "Do you think cigarette smoke is one of the causes of lung cancer? Over 60% of the population answered "No" or "Undecided". Even large numbers of doctors were confident that smoking was safe. (A separate poll revealed that 43% of all American doctors were still smoking cigarettes on a regular basis).

 

 

Now we know the truth...

  • Cigarette smoking causes about one of every five deaths in the United States each year.
  • Total deaths caused by smoking are more than 480,000 each year.
  • Life expectancy for smokers is at least 10 years shorter than for nonsmokers.
 
 
 
 
 

Cocaine

During the late 1880's, cocaine was thought to be a "cure-all" medicine, and was a key ingredient in Coca Cola. Now we know it's an extremely addictive drug that causes nearly 5,000 deaths each year.

Lead Paint

Used for over two hundred years and in more than 37 million homes before we realized that it causes detrimental damage to the brain and nervous system.

 

Also, testing of some e-cigarette products found the vapor to contain known carcinogens and toxic chemicals (such as formaldehyde and acetaldehyde), as well as potentially toxic metal nanoparticles from the vaporizing mechanism.

it's impacting your generation


 

Its estimated that there are currently more than 3 million middle and high school students who vape. To put that into perspective, you could fill each seat in every NFL stadium and NBA arena, while still having enough students to fill Penn State's stadium, twice. Imagine what the future will look like for this generation if there comes a day when we learn that there are side effects from vaping. Below are the startling statistics. You don't have to be one.

Lancaster County Middle and High School Student Facts

  • 13.5% of teens say they have vaped within the past 30 days.
  • 5% say they have smoked conventional cigarettes within that same time period.
  • 20% did not know what substance they were vaping.

When it comes to vaping, there are still a lot of unknowns, but these are the things we know for sure: it's not just water, its long-term side effects are unknown, and it's impacting your generation. With flavors like bubblegum and lemonade, vaping might seem harmless, but the truth is that you're taking a risk with each inhale.

The choice is yours.
