$6

High School use?

1-6 high school students used e-cigarettes in 2015.

$14

Continued use?

12-14% of individuals who try e-cigarettes become daily users. (Schoenborn and Gindi., 2015)

$20

Who has tried e-cigs?

More than 20% of 18-24 year olds have tried e-cigs. (Schoenborn and Gindi., 2015).

$50

Arterial Function

Carnevale and colleagues discovered electronic cigarette vapor reduced arterial function during reactive hyperemia immediately following e-cigarette exposure. (Carnevale et al., 2016)

$100

Arterial Stiffening

A 2016 study by Vlachopoulos et al., found that aortic stiffness and blood pressure both increased after electronic cigarette use in a sample of young smokers.

$500

Tobacco and Heart Disease

Tobacco has been linked to increased risk of heart disease and stroke. The inhalation of combusted chemicals leads to damage of the arterial wall which in turn leads to greater deposits of plaque.
