Minnesota Tobacco Prevention Resources

“A study from the University of North Carolina found that the two primary ingredients found in e-cigarettes—propylene glycol and vegetable glycerin—are toxic to cells and that the more ingredients in an e-liquid, the greater the toxicity.” ~American Lung Association

Tobacco Prevention is of extreme importance due to its profound impact on individuals and public health worldwide. The use of tobacco products primarily through smoking and chewing, poses significant risks mostly for the smoker but also for those who are exposed to secondhand smoke. Tobacco use is the leading cause of many preventable diseases worldwide such as lung cancer, heart disease, COPD, and pregnancy issues related to tobacco use. Tobacco use is also associated with an increased risk of certain cancers, including mouth cancers, throat cancers, esophagus, bladder and pancreas. By aiming our focus on tobacco prevention we can reduce the incidence of these life threatening conditions, enhancing overall public health, and create a healthier and more productive society for the future generations. Tobacco prevention resources serve as an important base for establishing better tobacco cessation and prevention in communities.
