Teens' use of e-cigarette and other electronic vaping devices has skyrocketed. Kids think e-cigarettes are a "safe" alternative to smoking. This program gives students the facts and urges extreme caution. Viewers learn the truth about nicotine addiction and its impact on health. They will understand that the supposedly "safe" water vapor contains other harmful chemicals as well. E-cigarettes are unregulated by the FDA and the amount of nicotine in each e-cigarette varies, so that the user never knows what’s inside. E-cigarettes are not approved by the FDA for smoking cessation. Viewers will also learn that big tobacco companies are using advertising techniques to lure in users and hook them for life.
