While smoking bans have cut smoking in many public places to keep the community safe, the use of E-cigarettes is on the rise—especially among young kids. Despite advertising suggesting that E-cigarettes are a safe alternative to smoking tobacco, these products are largely unregulated and can still cause many of the destructive effects of regular cigarettes. This video offers a warning to families that E-cigarettes are exploding in popularity and marketing aggressively to America’s youth. The most effective way to manage your health as a smoker is still to kick the habit completely instead of switching to alternative devices.
