e-cigarettes and vaping have risen to popularity in recent years because many people thought they were safer than smoking traditional cigarettes. It turns out they are not.
In 2016, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) extended the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act to cover e-cigarettes in order to control the sales and marketing of them. The American Lung Association1 has been sounding the alarm on e-cigarettes for some time now and reported a 900 percent increase in teenager’s use of e-cigarettes between 2011 and 2015. They are far from alone. There are numerous studies showing the high risks of e-cigarettes and vaping.
