Vaping: What You Should Know About This Trend

Are your teens vaping? They may be, as e-cig usage has tripled among teens in the past year.



Chances are you’ve been warning your kids not to smoke since they were little. Better chat with them about saying no to “vaping” too. Statistics from the Centers for Disease Control show that e-cigarette use has tripled among American teens in just one year. Use by middle schoolers jumped from 120,000 to 450,000 and from 660,000 to 2 million among high schoolers, according to the CDC’s National Youth Tobacco Survey.

Though common perception is that e-cigs are “safer” because they’re smoke-free, they’re still full of nicotine and other harmful chemicals. And since they’re new, not much is known about their health risks, according to the American Lung Association. Bottom line: Nicotine’s a dangerous, addictive substance in any form.
