E-cigarette vaping is being promoted as less harmful than smoking cigarettes, but that doesn't mean it is harmless. Far from it! Studies are underway to determine the long term risks of vaping. What is known, however, is that vaping is becoming more popular with Ontario students. They risk becoming addicted to the nicotine found in the many flavours of e-juices available with attractive smells and tastes. Vaping, like tobacco, is banned on school property at all times, but the newer vaping devices can be easy to disguise and use without attracting attention. It's important we work together at school and home to talk about vaping and encourage our kids to make healthy, vape- and tobacco-free lifestyle choices. Find out more at www.simcoemuskokahealth.org.
