Vaping Education from the BC Lung Association

Vaping products are battery-powered devices that heat a liquid solution to deliver an aerosol (vapour/cloud) that the users inhale. The liquid inside the cartridge is called e-juice (vaping liquid or e-liquid) which often contains a carrier solvent of propylene glycol and/or vegetable glycerol, nicotine and flavours consisting of chemicals and other harmful substances.

Youth vaping is threatening to addict a new generation of young people on nicotine. In an effort to address this, the BC Lung Association has partnered with Fraser Health Authority to develop health education resources for youth to provide an opportunity to explore their thoughts and perceptions about vaping.
The toolkit's purpose?
1) To raise awareness and increase the knowledge of educators and parents
2) To help guide youth towards making informed decisions with respect to using vaping products.

Resource for parents and caregivers that includes tips on how to start a dialogue about vaping, as well as potential vaping questions that parents may be asked by their child, accompanied by suggested responses. Information for parents is available in ChineseFarsiPunjabiTagalog, and Vietnamese

There is also an FAQ document with a series of commonly asked questions and answers about vaping products. The FAQ sheet is available in ChineseFarsiPunjabiTagalog, and Vietnamese.
