Electronic cigarettes mostly used by teenagers


Electronic cigarettes are back in trend for those who smoke. They are readily available and cheaper in cost. Hence many teenager and adults have switched to them. Most experts say they’re less harmful than cigarettes because the vapors don’t contain tar and other cancer-causing byproducts of burning tobacco.

Supporters aim to make electronic cigarettes less appealing to teenagers. “They must look at cigarettes and say, cigarettes are disgusting. Tobacco is disgusting,” said Trish La Chica, an advocate.  “So take away the cotton candy, take away the flavors that look like they belong in an ice cream shop, and they wouldn’t be attracted to start in the first place.”

The FDA said it would prioritize removing vaping products that clearly appeal to kids. For instance, packaging that resembles juice boxes, candy or cookies.

A 2017 Hawaii Health Department study found 16 percent of middle schoolers and 26 percent of high school students were current users of e-cigarettes. The number of high school students experimenting with vaping jumped four-fold between 2011 and 2015, the study said. The National Youth Tobacco Survey found youth vaping surged 78 percent between 2017 and 2018 across the U.S.

These kind of addictive drugs might not be so dangerous. But it will have long-term consequences. So it’s better if consumption is stopped now.

He covers all the main beats but never passes up the opportunity to discuss anything related to Netflix & Amazon Prime Originals. Akhil spends way too much time reading comics, watching movies, and playing games, and he's still wondering just what exactly is on page 47. But hey, at least all that knowledge enables him to make obscure pop culture references in conversations (though that probably isn't a good thing). And his tea addiction comes does in handy whenever it comes down to writing up breaking news and hot takes.
