Tobacco and E-Cigarettes

Tobacco use is the greatest cause of preventable disease and premature death in Ontario. Smoking causes lung and other cancers, respiratory illness, cardiovascular disease and stroke. There are many tobacco-related products such as cigarettes, cigars, hookah, waterpipes and chewing tobacco. Nicotine is the addictive chemical in tobacco. E-cigarettes do not contain tobacco, but can deliver nicotine. Policies and interventions can help to reduce e-cigarette use as well as tobacco use and related illnesses. These include: industry regulations, youth prevention, protection against second-hand smoke and cessation programs.
