E-Cigarettes: Know the Facts

Tuesday, April 16, 2013 at 4:28:29 PM

E-cigarettes are battery-powered devices that deliver nicotine through a flavored vapor making users feel like they are inhaling tobacco smoke. The amount of nicotine in an E-cigarette is unknown, and an FDA study found that they also contain toxic chemicals. More research is needed to determine health effects. FDA approved medications such as nicotine patches or Chantix® in combination with counseling are shown to be the most successful. A weekly tobacco cessation support group meets at Stay Health Center, Oakdale Mall, at 6:00 PM and all are welcome. Please call 763-5091 for more information
