Transcript of "E cigs, what you need to know"

  1. 1. E-Cigs: What You Need to Know
  2. 2. The Electronic Cigarette Industry • Smoking contributes to 80% of lung-cancer deaths in women; 90% in men, according to the American Lung Association • E-cigs have 450 times lower levels of toxicants in their vapors than can be found in cigarette smoke • At just $1.2 billion, the e-cig market is still small • Only 1% of the $89 billion tobacco industry
  3. 3. The Electronic Cigarette Industry • E-cigarettes, which do not contain tobacco, resemble traditional cigarettes but use a battery to heat a liquid nicotine solution, which creates a vapor – not smoke -- that users inhale. • There is no second-hand smoke with e-cigs; however, the FDA has warned the effects are unknown. • Gives users their nicotine fix without the toxins and carcinogens generated by burning tobacco.
  4. 4. The Electronic Cigarette Industry • Between manufacturer price hikes on cigarettes, increased taxes by local, state, and federal governments, and bans on public smoking, cigarette sales will continue to fall • There is no federal excise tax on e-cigarettes • Sales are estimated to hit between $3 billion and $10 billion over next 5 years • Could surpass regular cigarette sales within the next decade
