The Glenbard Parent Series hosted Matt Quinn from Rosecrance Health Network at a presentation on May 1, 2018, Everything You Need to Know About Vaping.
Takeaways from this program
- Molly Hoerster, Glenbard West parent
"Vaping is likely more harmful than most teens realize. There are still many carcinogenic chemicals contained in the aerosol emitted from a vaping device, even though it isn't smoke. The immune system reacts in a very similar fashion to this aerosol versus smoke, causing damage to healthy lung tissue. Research has also identified damage to brain growth in teens using either nicotine or marijuana vapes. The tobacco companies are again targeting teens with flavoring agents because they know that they need to get them hooked to create lifelong customers."
