Electronic cigarettes, or vapes, have been growing in popularity over the past few years, and although they are believed by many to be safe and harmless compared to cigarettes, there is growing research that indicates there should be caution and concern related to the use of these products. This webinar will explore use trends, current research on safety and provide information about potential for addiction, re-normalization of smoking, possible adverse health effects, the lack of regulation and hopefully answer questions about this perplexing product.
