Vaping in Teens


Mar­ket­ed as a healthy alter­na­tive to smok­ing, vap­ing is a rel­a­tive­ly new trend that is grow­ing at a fast rate. In Sep­tem­ber of 2019, the Cen­ters for Dis­ease Con­trol (CDC) and the U.S. Food and Drug Admin­is­tra­tion (FDA) issued a pub­lic warn­ing, urg­ing peo­ple not to use e‑cigarettes. Pedi­a­tri­cian, Dr. Kevin Ger­mi­no, shares facts, risks and tips on talk­ing to your teens about the dan­gers of vaping.
