    VAPING 

     

    VAPING is the process of inhaling a chemical substance using a small device that may resemble a pen, USB drive, or mechanical cigarette.  Both the CDC and the 2017 Monitoring the Future study caution vaping among youth due to the immediate and long term health impacts.  Choosing not to vape or replacing vaping with healthy alternatives can have health-promoting results on short-term and long-term well-being.  Additional fact sheets on Vaping may be accessed by clicking on the images on this page or are available at: https://www.cdc.gov/tobacco/basic_information/e-cigarettes/index.htmhttps://www.cdc.gov/tobacco/basic_information/e-cigarettes/index.htm
