I don't usually post here, but a news report I watched today was disturbing. The number of teens Vaping has doubled in the past year and there is nothing to support the notion that it's harmless. That's troublesome given all the effort that has been put into preventing our teens to smoke. Dissapointing
It's like the !950's where our parents were not told the real truth about cigarettes. Sadly, this generation will eventually find what vaping will do to them when it's too late. I only blame myself for smoking. My generation knew it was bad for them, unless they lived under a rock.

I saw that on Yahoo & what kills me so much is how can these VAPERS not think twice about inhaling those vapors-I guess people like me with breathing issues worry more about stuff like that, thank GOD after almost 2 yrs of freedom I rarely use my inhaler & I'm sure if I lived in a smoke free house I'd never would use one. To me this vaping thing is like it was 40 yrs ago when we all thought smoking was cool. Its going to be a sad day when the true facts come to light over the harm vaping does.

This is complete BS. They found that the number of teens that had tried an e-cig had increased. They didn't ask aboutcontinued use, or daily use, they asked about ONE TIME use. If you ask a bunch of freshman if they've ever had a puff of a cigarette, and then ask them when they're seniors, I bet the number quadruples.
"Children still are more likely to light up regular cigarettes, though teen smoking rates have dropped in the past decade. More teens now smoke marijuana than tobacco, surveys have found.
But health officials worry e-cigarettes could re-ignite teen cigarette use. They point to a finding in the study that 20 percent of middle school e-cigarette users had never tried conventional cigarettes. When the same question was asked of high school students, only 7 percent had never tried regular smokes.
That suggests many kids experiment with the electronic devices and move on to cigarettes by high school, said CDC Director Dr. Tom Frieden."
Ummmmm. What? What part of this at all suggests that kids start with e-cigs and move on to regular cigs? Where is there any evidence at all of that migration?????? How many of the supposed middle schoolers that haven't smoked a cigarette just start smoking e-cigs and are NOT marijuana users? That's the question that was never asked. Most people that don't smoke, chew, or otherwise use nicotine are not going to pick up an e-cig which has a higher up front cost than any of the other methods to start with. No other "study" and I use the term loosely with this one, has found any significant use of e-cigs as a "gateway to smoking".
