legislator rhoads is hosting a presentation on: 

VAPES & VAPING: WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

 

Wednesday, January 29th – 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM

Brookside School – 1260 Meadowbrook Rd., N. Merrick

 

Legislator Rhoads is hosting this important presentation along with the Bellmore Merrick CHSD and the Bellmore Merrick Community Coalition to teach parents and children what they need to know about the dangers of vaping.


Some known risks of vaping are:

E-cigarettes contain high levels of nicotine. The nicotine content of one JUULpod is equivalent to one pack of cigarettes.

Because of these high nicotine levels, vaping is extremely addictive.

E-cigarettes and similar devices contain carcinogenic compounds.

Vaping can cause lung irritation akin to that seen in smokers and people with lung disease and causes damage to vital immune system cells.

Several deaths and hundreds of cases of lung illness have been attributed to vaping.

Vaping can increase heart rate and blood pressure, causing an increase in circulatory problems.
