Did you know – most teens don’t actually know what is in vape juice. 66% of teens think it’s just flavoring, 13.7% don’t know, 13.2% say nicotine, 5.8% say Marijuana and 1.3% say other. This is because Manufacturers don’t have to report e-cigarette ingredients so user don’t know what’s actually in them.
Parents, do you know what chemicals are inside a vape, and have you talked to your kids about it? Many parents, kids, and professionals have their own misperceptions about vaping because the products are so new and the research we have is still under way. But there are things we know without a doubt.
We know from the Center for Disease Control that there are many volatile organic compounds inside the “vape juice,” as well as nicotine, ultrafine particles, heavy metals (lead, nickel, tin) cancer causing chemicals, and flavorings such as Diacetyl which has been linked to serious lung disease.
