JUUL E-Cigarettes Products
JUUL Labs, the maker of the JUUL e-cigarette device, accounts for approximately 75% of e-cigarettes sold in the United States. E-cigarettes have been touted as a “healthy alternative” to cigarettes and an “effective way to quit smoking.” Now, studies are finding that e-cigarette use is being linked to a growing number of serious health issues. These issues have been linked to the chemical flavorings and additives contained in the e-cigarette liquids. In addition, the extremely high concentration of nicotine that is found in each e-cigarette pod is the equivalent to an entire pack of traditional cigarettes. Nicotine is a known toxic and addictive substance.
JUUL and other e-cigarette companies are being scrutinized for specifically targeting youth in their marketing campaigns. They heavily market on social media and hype their fruity and cream flavored pods, which have subsequently been pulled from most of their supplier’s shelves until further investigation by the FDA. The majority of youth regularly using JUUL and other e-cigarette brands say they were not even aware that the pods contain nicotine. The youth-targeted marketing strategy is believed to have an agenda of creating a new generation of addicted smokers.
The bottom line is that adults and youth alike are being led to believe that JUUL devices and e-cigarettes are a safe and healthy alternative to traditional smoking. The reality is that they are not FDA approved and more and more users are experiencing illnesses related to chemical and/or nicotine toxicity.

- Heart disease
- Mental health issues
- Birth defects
- Lung disease
- Bronchiolitis obliterans organizing pneumonia (BOOP)
- Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)

FDA warns JUUL Labs for marketing unauthorized modified risk tobacco products, including in outreach to youth.
While being marketed as a “safe and healthy alternative to smoking traditional cigarettes,” JUUL e-cigarettes have not been approved by the FDA, which has issued a letter of warning for marketing them as such. With that, there have been reports of serious health conditions associated with the use of JUUL devices and other e-cigarettes. These reports include, but are not limited to: severe addiction, seizures, heart attack, heart disease, mental health issues, birth defects, stroke and lung disease. Some events have led to adverse serious clinical outcomes, even death. Complications can be related to effects of high levels of nicotine, as well as other toxic chemicals found in vape liquids.
