The increase in youth vaping is nearing crisis levels and it’s important for every community to have the most up-to-date facts regarding these devices and the potential harm they’re causing. As medical professionals and scientists learn more about the long-term effects of these products it is important to take a cautionary approach, increase educational outreach, especially to teens and young adults, and strongly urge people not to vape.
