Do You Believe Any of These Three Myths about JUUL Electronic Cigarettes?

- MYTH:JUUL Products Are Safe Compared to what? While the product manufacturer says they can help people stop smoking cigarettes, and cigarettes are indeed deadly, that does not mean that JUUL products are automatically safe. There are several health concerns about these products including the vaporize pods being full of nicotine – much more than in other e-cigarettes. Long-term health aside, these products have been known to explode and cause serious burn injuries including death. No matter how you look at, these products should be classified as “safe.”
- MYTH: The Fact that JUUL is Legal Means It is Government-Approved No. The truth is that health agencies at the city, state, and federal levels did not pay much attention to e-cigarettes when they were first introduced to the public. In 2019, after years of risk-reporting, legislation and regulation started from coast to coast regarding how these vaporizers could be sold. States have passed laws that go even further than government regulations. However, do not make the mistake that because they remain legal, the government has tested this product and deemed it safe. This is false.
- MYTH: JUUL is Marketed and Sold Only to Adults While it is true that you must click “I am 18 years old” to enter the website of JUUL, you will find that many people who use these products are in high school or even middle school. According to the FDA, about 3.5 million children and teens had used an e-cigarette as of 2018. There is evidence that JUUL not only knows this but has encouraged it. Examples include creating vape flavors with sweet, fruity flavors that are more likely to appeal to younger users, advertising on channels watched primarily by teens, and sending JUUL representatives to high school classrooms to tell teens that their products are a safe alternative to cigarettes.
