BC Drug Free Facts

What is in an e-cigarette?  Do you know?  This is a follow-up to our article from last week about the ingredients in cigarettes.  Many people think that it is safer to smoke e-cigarettes compared to a real cigarette, but truth be told, they are both bad for you!  Below is a small list that researchers have compiled as toxic chemicals and metals that have all been found in e-cigarettes:

-Nicotine: highly addictive substance

-Carcinogens: chemicals known to cause cancer

-Diethylene glycol: toxic chemical used in antifreeze

-Heavy metals such as nickel, tin, and lead

-Propylene glycol: used to make things such as antifreeze, paint solvent

-Ultrafine particles that can be inhaled deep into the lungs
