Vaping Facts

  • Long-term health effects on users and bystanders are still unknown.

  • Vaping has been linked to seizures.

  • Some of the harmful chemicals found in e-liquid include:Diacetyl: This food additive, used to deepen e-cigarette flavors, is known to damage small passageways in the lungs, Formaldehyde: This toxic chemical can cause lung disease and contribute to heart disease and Acrolein: Most often used as a weed killer, this chemical can also damage lungs.

  • In some cases, e-cigarette devices have exploded, causing burns or fires.

  • E-cigarette manufactures target youth by offering kid-friendly flavors and packaging e-liquids to look like common food items.

  • E-cigarettes are the most commonly-used tobacco product among teens. In 2018, over 20% of high school students reported having used e-cigarettes in the last 30 days.

  • “Popcorn lung” is another name for bronchiolitis obliterans (BO), a rare condition that results from damage of the lungs’ small airways. BO was originally discovered when popcorn factory workers started getting sick. The culprit was diacetyl, a food additive used to simulate butter flavor in microwave popcorn. Diacetyl is frequently added to flavored e-liquid to enhance the taste. Inhaling diacetyl causes inflammation and may lead to permanent scarring in the smallest branches of the airways — popcorn lung — which makes breathing difficult. Popcorn lung has no lasting treatment. 

  • Unlike the classic pneumonia caused by infection, lipoid pneumonia develops when fatty acids (the building blocks of fat) enter the lungs. Vaping-related lipoid pneumonia is the result of inhaling oily substances found in e-liquid, which sparks an inflammatory response in the lungs.
