CDC had issued a warning recently. They have found out from a report that many teenagers are smoking or using e-cigarettes, and that is not a good thing. The scale is large, according to the report, and the warning had been issued. It makes sense if you think about it. Smoking at such a young age is not a healthy thing to do. Someone needs to check this.
The number of teenagers that have been doing and who have known to be using e-cigarettes has reached 2 million. What’s more shocking than the number is that out of the total about more than 80% of those are kids who are middle and high school students.
They are the ones who are preferring to use flavored e-cigs in 2021. The stats are correct as it is all according to a study released by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
Many of the students that have been partaking in this activity were surveyed by them. They found out that about 43.6% of high school students and 17.2% of middle school students have used e-cigarettes in the past month itself.
That is a high percentage of students if we consider it against the population. Moreover, out of those students, 27.6% of high school and 8.3% of middle school students have also admitted to daily use of the e-cigarettes.
They all tend to prefer the flavored ones against the unflavoured ones. The most popular brands of e-cigarette include Puff Bar, Vuse, JUUL, SMOK, and Suorion. Puff Bar is very popular, and it is known for being the go-to among youth.
The coronavirus pandemic had been raging across the country, but that did not slow down the use of e-cigarettes. Karen Hacker, who is the director of CDC National Centre for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion had said that the usage of e-cigarettes is a public health concern. It is important to spread awareness and check the usage of this in order to protect the youth from being sick.
