E-Cigarettes/Vaping: A Community

"Forget what we told you before...."
-Help you quit smoking
-Smoke these anywhere
-Won't bother anyone


Many of you have probably seen someone smoking an e-cigarette..

These devices are projected to rake in 1.7 billion this year..(Forbes, 2015)

Next year industry growth = 40-50%, eventually surpassing cigarettes

American Heart Association states that cigarettes are #1 preventable cause of death. (480,000 Americans dead in 2014)

Are we willing to risk another 480,000 people dying?
FDA statement
(2015): E-cig research is INCONCLUSIVE,
so it is unknown:
The health risks
Nicotine quantity
Any benefits?
Enticing to youth?
The World Health Organization's 2014 report emphasized:
The health risks (addiction, respiratory distress)
Need to ban flavors
Need to minimize toxins
California Department of Public Health's 2015 report.
E-Cigarettes: A Community Health Threat
In 2014, youth used e-cigs regular cigs
Same report from California Department of Public Health found disturbing facts about advertising:
E-cig advertisement in ALL media. Cigs banned 40 years ago.
3 years=12 fold increase in $ spent advertising e-cigs
Camel and Marlboro launched their own e-cigs nationally in July 2014
Most smokers try
their first cigarette around the age of 11
-Peer Pressure
-Smoking is a way to rebel
-Tobacco ads target teenagers
It's good
for you
"you can
trust me"
How did it all start ?
"get in
There's something new
The new argument
"What we say now .."
But there's more to it
-Contain Nicotine
-Unknown Long Term Effects
-E-cigarette "fluids" are sufficiently high for inhalation exposure by vaping to be of toxicological

A High-Tech Way To
Hook A New Generation
On A Bad Nicotine Habit?
What can we do about it

-18 & Over Require-ID at door of vape lounges.

-Stop marketing of “E-Juice” and
fruit/candy flavors in public areas.

-Obtain childproof packaging for
E-cigarettes and E-liquids.

-Same marketing restrictions used
with cigarettes.



-Impact of additives used in E-cigs

-Heavy Metals used in E-cigs

-Long Term impact on inhaling vapor

-Long Term Cost of using E-Cigarettes
6.3 % 7th graders,
12.4 % 9th graders
14.3 % 11th graders
Used e-cigarettes in the past 30 days.
Smoking = #1 preventable cause of death
E-cigs = similar in process

FDA, WHO, CDPH have inconclusive or negative e-cig research. Children susceptible the most.

Big tobacco taking over. Advertisement in all media. Shows no signs of stopping.
What we propose...

In conclusion...
Long-term consequences
Require proper ID for lounges
End E-juice marketing
Childproof packaging
Marketing restrictions
3-12 months
1-3 years
Educate the public
Unknown health risks
What we know...
10 chemicals
found on California’s Proposition 65 list
Indirect Youth Exposure
Secondhand Vapor
"Harmless Water Vapor"
Nicotine Exposure
Third hand nicotine
How to educate for change...
E-cigarette poisonings have increased
since 2012
Appeal to children
increased poisoning

E-cigarettes emit aerosol
toxic to human cells
