U.S. Surgeon General Vice Adm. Jerome M. Adams has sent out a public warning about the risks of vaping, says UPI. Adams said, “We need to protect our kids from all tobacco products, including all shapes and sizes of e-cigarettes.” According to the Dept. of Health & Human Services, youth e-cig use “has skyrocketed in the past year at a rate of epidemic proportions.” Between 2017 and 2018, e-cig use among high schoolers increased by more than 75%. The CDC says that nicotine can harm the brain development of young people.
