E-cigarettes


Hi, I’m Dr. Anita Chandra, with today’s tip for kids from the American Academy of Pediatrics. Did you know e-cigarettes can be just as addictive as regular cigarettes? This is especially true for teenagers, whose brains are still developing. Parents should learn the names for e-cigarettes, and what they look like. Talk to your teen about the dangers of nicotine. Often, teens who start with e-cigarettes take up other forms of tobacco. For more information, visit HealthyChildren.org, and talk with your pediatrician.
