Public Health poster warning about the dangers of vaping.E-cigarettes, also known as e-cigs, e-hookahs, vapes, vape pens, mods and tank systems, are battery operated devices that change a liquid chemical (e-juice) into an aerosol that can be inhaled. Knowing the facts about the risks of vaping can be tricky as the e-cigarette industry is new and growing rapidly.

To help, Public Health has developed an e-cigarette fact sheet to answer frequently asked questions like: What is an e-cigarette? How common are they? Are they safe? Can they help you quit smoking?

Know the facts about vaping and start a conversation with your child about the risks. Visit Public Health’s website to access the fact sheet and more vaping-related material:
