Vaping is not the harmless alternative that people imagine because it comes in many flavours and seems like 'fun'. It can cause irreversible lung damage. If you vape, have a yarn to your doctor.Vapes are clouded in misconception ☁️. They contain many of the same toxic and cancer-causing chemicals found in regular cigarettes.

One of these ingredients is diacetyl, used in popcorn flavourings for its buttery taste.

When eaten, diacetyl is usually harmless. But, when inhaled in large amounts, can lead to 'Popcorn Lung' or bronchiolitis obliterans. 🍿🫁

Bronchiolitis obliterans is a rare condition that causes inflammation in the airways, leading to scarring and permanent damage. This can make it hard to breathe, and once occurs, can't be fixed. 😮‍💨

The sooner you put the vape down, the quicker your body can rebound and repair itself. Don't get sucked in – it's not worth it.

If you or someone you know needs support to quit, contact Quitline on 13 78 48, or visit quithq.initiatives.qld.gov.au.

Bones play many roles in the body — providing structure, protecting organs, anchoring muscles and storing calcium. So it's important to keep them strong and healthy.Your bones help you move, give you strength and protect your organs. 🦴

As you age, it's vital to keep them healthy to reduce your risk of disease.

Try factoring in these tips to keep your healthy and strong:
🏃 Exercise regularly – any exercise helps bones grow stronger and harder. This may be walking or weight training.
🥛 Drink or eat calcium – eat calcium-rich drinks like milk or foods like cheese, green leafy veggies or fish with edible bones like sardines.
🌞 Get some vitamin D – most of your vitamin D comes from sunshine. Enjoy regular outdoor activities in the sun like walking to the bus or hanging out the washing. Remember to be sun safe as well!
