"We help people switch from smoking cigarettes have 3000 to 10,000 carcinogen and it to vaping contains 3 to 10 contaminant which in the majority of e-liquids they are all FDA approved ingredients."

BUSINESS OWNERS SAY "VAPING" OR USING E-CIGORETTES IS AN EFFECTIVE WAY TO STOP SMOKING BUT HEALTH OFFICIALS AREN'T SO SURE OF IT'S BENEFITS.

"Public health officials are not recommending e-cigarette's for used to people quit smoking they haven't been proven safe and effective and they're really not supposed to be marketed that way."

VAPING IS A RELATIVELY NEW HABIT WITH NEW REGULATIONS AND THERE IS STILL UNCERTAINTY ABOUT WHAT THE EFFECTS ARE ON THE ONE SMOKING AND OTHERS BREATHING IN THE SECONDHAND VAPOR.

"We don't necessarily know if there are safe or unsafe but there are recently published article that seem to support that smoke that comes from vaping, even if you're not vaping just in the room can't affect people and cause respiratory problems."

"There's no effects as far as secondhand vaping once you inhale the nicotine vapor exhale has zero nicotine in it."

"As long as the nicotine is not accompanied by the other carcinogens that are found in cigarettes it is basically like drinking a cup of coffee."
