Myths about 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?
