E-Cigarettes are not recommended 

E-cigs are not recommended as an alternative to conventional cigarettes nor as a cessation device. They contain toxic chemicals and metals including: propylene glycol, formaldehyde, cadmium, lead and nickel. Health consequences include: 
  • airway irritation 
  • asthma
  • impaired lung function

E-cigs do not emit "harmless water vapor." The secondhand aerosol contains nicotine, ultra-fine particles, and low levels of chemical and metal toxins that are known to cause cancer.  

Lung Cancer Screening                            

The Augusta University Medical Center is offering FREE lung screening to smokers, ages 50-80 years that smoked a pack of cigarettes a day for 20-30+ years. Additional screening criteria apply.
