The American Lung Association warns that our youth’s generation is at risk for irreversible lung damage and disease as a result of e-cigarettes. They are called many different things—hookahs, Juuls, pens, mods, vapes, e-cigs. Whatever you call them, many different age groups view them as harmless. They are wrong.
The CDC recently found that 99% of the e-cigarettes sold in assessed venues in the United States contained nicotine, that some e-cigarette labels do not disclose they contain nicotine, and that some marketed as containing 0% nicotine have been found to contain nicotine. Our youth and adults are being misled.
