Updated: Mar 3, 2022

Vaping is not a safe alternative to cigarette smoking and can have serious health impacts on your kids. The aerosol from e-cigarettes contain harmful toxins, like metals and carcinogens. These harm the user and those around them, increasing the chances of respiratory illness or nicotine toxicity. What’s inside:

  • Nicotine or THC Cannabis

  • Ultrafine particles that can be inhaled into the lungs

  • Chemicals linked to a serious lung disease

  • Cancer-causing chemicals

  • Hot oils that coat the airways

  • Lifelong addiction

Follow these steps to protect your children from the effects of vaping:

  1. If you vape, go outside. Don’t do it near your children.

  2. Never vape indoors, in your car, or in places that children spend time.

  3. Protect your family from vaping residue by changing clothes and washing hands.

  4. Lock up your devices and supplies to avoid accidental poisoning by children and pets.

And remember, it’s never too late to quit! For free tobacco and vaping cessation support:
