THE MORE YOU KNOW: CDC states smoking linked to 1 in 4 CVD deaths. Vaping does NOT “trade cancer for heart disease,” it LOWERS the risk for heart disease. Vapor products DO NOT contain more nicotine than cigarettes (200 “puffs” is NOT the same as 200 mg,) but even if they did, it’s the SMOKE that causes greatest health risks, not the nicotine. Claiming that vapor products have “more nicotine” is a red herring to distract from the fact that they still don’t carry the same health risks as smoking.

THE MORE YOU KNOW: (UK) Because of ANTZ propaganda, most people believe smoke-free tobacco has a stronger link to oral cancer than smoking. Nothing could be further from the truth. Oral cancers are more frequently linked to smoking, HPV and alcohol abuse.
