Tobacco and e-cigarette use

Tobacco use increases the risk of cancer, heart and lung diseases, and other illnesses. All forms of commercial tobacco–including cigarettes, chewing tobacco, and electronic nicotine delivery systems (commonly known as e-cigarettes or vapes)–contain nicotine and other harmful chemicals. People with diabetes should avoid using any commercial tobacco.
