Dear MEL Topic Readers,Vaping now an epidemic among US high schoolers
What is vaping? It is to breathe in an aerosol, or a vapor, using an e-cigarette. E-cigarette is a hand-held electronic device that heats an e-liquid to produce an aerosol. It makes the “smoker” feel like smoking a cigarette.
Though the health risks of e-cigarettes are uncertain, e-cigarettes can lead to nicotine addiction when used by non-smokers. And it is concerned that children could start smoking once they are used to vaping. Health experts are worried about the artificial flavoring chemicals in e-cigarettes that seem appealing to kids. As a matter of fact, the number of e-cigarette use by high school students is rapidly rising in the U.S. Since the vapor disappears quickly and the odor doesn’t remain like cigarette smoking, some high school students are vaping in hallways or even classrooms.
The pleasure of inhaling artificial vapor shouldn’t be allowed in the school environment, especially the ones that make young kids become addictive. Maybe it is time for school administrators to consider installing another detecting device in schools.
Enjoy reading and think of the benefits and drawbacks of artificial something.
