ETR is thrilled with the response to our new pamphlet on e-cigarettes: “E-Cigarettes: 10 Things to Know About Vaping.” In an effort to reach even more people with the facts about e-cigarettes, we now offer this National Health Information Award-winning title in Spanish.
With studies showing the use of e-cigarettes growing rapidly among all age groups, there’s a real need for clear information about these products.
Companies aggressively market their e-cigarettes as healthy alternatives to smoking conventional cigarettes and as useful cessation devices. However, the limited research that exists indicates these media messages are misleading.
The new pamphlet debunks the message that e-cigarettes are safe, reports that the products contain some of the same toxins found in tobacco cigarettes, and emphasizes the fact that e-cigarettes are not regulated or approved as cessation devices.
