Did you know that:

· Exhaust emissions worsen asthma, bronchitis, and existing allergies.


· The New England Journal of Medicine reports that exposure to air pollution may cause chronic decreases in lung functions by age 18.


· Children breathe up to 50% more air per pound of body weight than adults, making them more susceptible to both acute and chronic respiratory problems like asthma.


· Every year, hundreds of New Jerseyans die prematurely from exposure to diesel exhaust. Fine particle pollution may actually cause more deaths in NJ than homicides and car accidents combined.


· The American Heart Association has concluded that air pollution increases the risk of death from cardiovascular disease.

Vaping: An Addictive Trend among our Teens

In 2016, more than 2 million U.S. middle school and high school students used e-cigarettes. Electronic cigarettes also known as “e-cigarettes,” “e-cigs,” “vape pens,” “vapes,” and “electronic nicotine delivery systems” are made to look like regular cigarettes. E-cigarettes produce an aerosol by heating a liquid that usually contains nicotine flavorings that help make the aerosol which is inhaled by users. Most e-cigarettes contain nicotine which is highly addictive and harmful to the brain development of teenagers. The risk of e-cigarette use includes addiction, behavior risks, and illness. The e-cigarette product known as JUUL has become popular among high school students due to the variety of flavors. The JUUL device is similar to a USB drive and can be charged in the USB port of a computer. The bottom line is e-cigarettes are harmful to youth and young adults. You can take action by talking to your children about the dangers of e-cigarettes. For more information visit,
