E-cigarettes are known by many different names. They are sometimes called e-cigs, vapes, vape pens, tank systems, or mods. In recent years, e-cigarettes have become ubiquitous and can be seen everywhere. It is common to see people vaping in the streets, in their cars and even in some eateries.
Two new studies of e-cigarettes may bolster the United States (US) government’s efforts to stem what it calls a growing epidemic of youth vaping.Children and teens who had used e-cigarettes were four times more likely to have taken up cigarette smoking than those who didn’t vape, according to a study published Friday in the Journal of the American Medical Association.
