E-cigarette and Formaldehyde Exposures Chart
This chart is a visual tool to demonstrate how low the level of “toxic” formaldehyde is in second-hand vapor compared to other possible exposures. Anti-vapor groups often claim the chemicals found in vapor products are “toxic” and could cause harm. Formaldehyde is frequently mentioned. Clearly, although the chemicla has been “detected,” the levels found couldn’t possibly be harful to bystanders.

This chart is a visual demonstration showing no increase in youth smoking and tobacco use since 2009, in spite of increased experimentation with vapor products. Anti-vapor groups often claim that the increased youth use of vapoir products will lead to nicotine addiction and act as a “gateway” to smoking. Although vapor products have been available in the United States sine at least 2007, youth smoking rates have continued to decline. If vapor products were leading to smoking, the smoking rates of youth would be rising, not declining to historic lows.

Solid Particulates vs. Liquid Particulates Graphic
The graphic is a visual analogy to demonstrate the difference between solid and liquid particulates. Anti-vapor groups have been claimijng that studies showing that vapor products deliver “particulates” deep into the lungs, but fail to distinguish the vast differnce between damaging solid particals, which may lodge in tissues and cause damage; and liquid particals, which can be absorbed and flushed from the body.
