HEALTH UNIT: SMOKING WEEK MESSAGE

 

(From Elgin-St.Thomas Health Unit) – “Whether it comes from tobacco, electronic cigarettes, cannabis or a hookah pipe, smoke is smoke and you should limit your exposure to it. That’s Elgin St. Thomas Public Health’s message for this National Non-Smoking Week. Many of the same cancer-causing chemicals, carbon monoxide and heavy metals that are found in tobacco smoke are found in cannabis smoke. Hookahs are water pipes used to smoke flavoured specialty made tobacco and herbal shisha. The smoke from both tobacco shisha and herbal shisha contains carbon monoxide and other toxic chemicals that increase the potential for smoking related cancers as well as heart and lung disease. Elgin St. Thomas Public Health recommends that everyone limit their exposure to tobacco, electronic cigarettes, cannabis and hookah smoke. This is specifically important for children, pregnant women, older adults and those with pre-existing health conditions, such as asthma, lung and heart disease.”
