E-Cigarettes & What Your Teen Needs To Know
The Food and Drug association has not evaluated the long-term side effects of using e-cigarettes and studies have found that inhaling the vapors is dangerous as there are chemicals such as formaldehyde in them. Even more dangerous is the fact that the vapor does not have a smell, making it harder for parents to detect, and currently some states do not have an age limit on who can purchase this product.
To increase marketing to young people the flavors that are placed and heated up in the vapors that kids inhale come in flavors such as candy, cherry crush and Pina Colada. With the increased sales, discussions have begun about how safe this product is and what the lasting effects are. In the mean time it is recommended that you have conversations with your kids about the health risks of e-cigarettes.
