In the past two years, the number of e-cigarette teenagers in the US has doubled. This has been claimed in a study published in the New England Journal of Medicine. The survey was conducted among students in eighth, tenth and 12th grades in American schools. According to the 2019 Monitoring the Future Survey, one in every four in 12th grade in the US, one in every five in tenth grade and one in every 11 students of eighth grade is using e-cigarettes. This figure was double that of a year ago. University of Michigan Chief Researcher Richard Meich says parents need to be vigilant in view of the damage to children’s health from e-cigarettes. E-cigarettes make children addicted to nicotine, which has a bad effect on the brain. In view of this, the Trump administration is preparing a ban on it.
According to another report, US President Donald Trump is also preparing to ban it due to e-cigarettes deaths and its dangerous impact on the health of adolescents. He has said that e-cigarette addiction has emerged as a new problem especially in children. So far six people have died in the US with e-cigarettes and 450 people are suffering from lung disease.
Explain that e-cigarettes are easily available in mango, cream, mint, menthol, candy, fruit and alcohol flavor in America. Due to this, children are getting addicted to it. In view of the dangerous impact of e-cigarettes on health, parents of the victims, academics and civil society people are demanding that it be banned. Even New York Governor Andrew Cuomo proposes a ban on flavored e-cigarettes across the state, like Michigan.
