Transcript - The Mechanics of Vaping - video

The entire video is animated. A series of 3D elements, diagrams, and text are seen throughout the video, floating on a black background.

Opening music playing.

Black background with white vapour clouds. The word vaping appears followed by the text let's take a deeper look.

How much do you know about it?

Let's take a deeper look.

5 distinctly-shaped vaping devices appear on screen along with labels for each device. From left to right: e-hookas, vape pens, vapes, e-cigarettes, tanks

The devices exit frame except for one of them.

As the narrator reads out the various parts that make up the device, the device separates into the four respective parts and the following text appears on screen: battery, heating element, tank / reservoir, mouthpiece

Vaping devices come in all shapes and sizes. Most consist of... A battery, a heating element, a tank or reservoir, and a mouthpiece.

Cut to a moving grey background that represents the liquid found in vaping devices. Text appearing on screen follows list read by narrator: propylene glycol and/or glycerol, flavours, nicotine.

The vaping liquid in the reservoir ...contains a solvent like propylene glycol and/or glycerol ...and flavours consisting of chemicals.

Many also contain varying levels of nicotine... the same highly addictive substance found in cigarettes.

Cut to Vaping device and cigarette side by side. Cigarette exits frame, vaping device in extreme close-up.

Vaping products do not contain tobacco and do not involve burning or producing smoke.

Cut to extreme close-up of the heating element found in a vaping device. A drop of liquid falls on the heating device and upon contact, creates vapor.

Vaping devices work by heating vaping liquid to form an aerosol

Cut to X-Ray like diagram of human body focussing on the lungs, where aerosol is being inhaled into the windpipe and lungs.

That is inhaled through the user's mouth and lungs...where it is absorbed into the bloodstream.

Cut to a diagram of the blood stream shown as a red background, with circular shapes moving. Bloodstream fades out of frame to black background with cloud of moving vapour.

The words take a closer look appear on screen.

Vaping is less harmful than smoking - however, that doesn't mean it is without risks.

Vaping is not intended for youth and non-smokers.
