Figure inhaling aerosol

Test: Water vapor or aerosol? _date: 06/01/18

Do vapes, usb-like devices, and e-cigs produce water vapor or aerosol?
Subject:
Males/Females Ages 13-25
Materials:
Vaping device, e-juice
Results:
CONCLUSIVE

Conclusion: An e-cig heats e-juice, creating an aerosol that contains chemicals like diacetyl, formaldehyde and benzene. An aerosol is a mixture of liquid particles suspended in a gas and can contain many chemicals. The aerosol produced by vaping is inhaled deep into the lungs, along with compounds like nicotine, a highly addictive substance, heavy metals, such as tin, nickel, lead, and ultrafine particles. The standard for what we breathe in should be clean air, free of aerosol and toxic secondhand smoke.

Figure surrounded by fruit

Test: Fruity Flavors _date: 06/01/18

Do fruit flavored vapes contain harmful chemicals?
Subject:
Males/Females Ages 13-25
Materials:
E-cig, multi-flavored juices
Results:
CONCLUSIVE

Conclusion: Don’t be fooled, fruit flavorings only mask the chemicals in vapes, such as diacetyl and nicotine. Research has concluded that fruit flavored products play a major role in drawing youth and young adults to tobacco products, as they are often mischaracterized as less harmful than non-flavored tobacco products. Additionally, research has found students who vape in high school are 6x more likely to smoke cigarettes as adults. Don’t get caught in the flavor trap.

Hammer hitting figure on the head

Test: Vaping and nicotine _date: 06/01/18

Do most vapes contain nicotine?
Subject:
Males/Females Ages 13-25
Materials:
Vaping device, fruity and non-fruity flavors
Results:
CONCLUSIVE

Conclusion: E-juice manufacturers are not currently required to report the ingredients used in their products. This means vape users do not know what ingredients or how much of a certain ingredient is used in their vape juice or cartridge. While some may think they are not vaping nicotine, a 2015 study found that nearly all (99%) of e-cigarettes sold in the U.S. contained nicotine. Additionally, of the nearly 8,000 flavors of e-juice, many contain nicotine at variable levels. For example, usb-like products, such as a JUULpod™ contains 5% nicotine, the same as a pack of cigarettes. While many other e-juices have been found to be inaccurately labeled. Nicotine impairs brain development up to age 25, decreasing the ability to focus and pay attention. Exposure can also be detrimental to fetal lung development.
