E-Cigarette’s & Vaping: A Tool to Quit Smoking or Growing Danger for Youth?

Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School

While cigarette use for high school students is at an all-time low (8%), 21% of students in the United States report using e-cigarettes in the past month; the highest level to date. The use of e-cigarettes--or electronic cigarettes often called vaping--has increased tremendously for young people over the past few years, making health care professionals and parents question its potential harm on health. This is unfortunate considering the hope that e-cigarettes could represent a less-harmful alternative to traditional cigarettes for current adult smokers. Michael Steinberg, MD, MPH, at Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, discusses the potential risks of e-cigarettes for teenagers, as well as the benefits for adults undergoing smoking cessation in a video produced by the medical school.
