E-Cigarettes as a Public Health Problem

10/1/2022; 46 minutes

E-cigarettes were first sold in the United States in 2007. These battery-operated devices heat a liquid made of flavorings and other chemicals, including some with high levels of nicotine, to make an aerosol that users inhale into their lungs. Recent studies show there has been a dramatic increase in their usage – data from 2017 found 1 million American youth aged 14 to 17 years old became new daily tobacco users within the past two years. By 2019, more than three quarters of these youth were vaping e-cigarettes daily. This program examines the latest research into the personal and public health impacts of e-cigarettes. (#38114)
