F D A Commissioner Scott Gottlieb declared youth vaping an "epidemic," the agency will halt sales of flavored electronic cigarettes if the major manufacturers can't prove they are doing enough to keep them out of the hands of the youth!The FDA is giving mfgs of #Juul, #Vuse, #MarkTen XL, #Blu & #Logic 60 days to submit “robust” plans to prevent youth #vaping. If the agency doesn’t like their plans there products are off the market. These 5 brands control 97 percent of the U.S. market for e-#cigarettes as per the FDA. Over 2 million middle school, high school, college students, staff use the battery-powered devices to heat liquid-based nicotine into an inhalable vapor containing harmful added ingredients. #Ecigarettes are the most popular #tobacco product among teens: With luring packaging, directed advertising & creative sales it is no wonder there is a opioid addiction problem amongst the youth. Parents need to talk to your kids! E Cig addiction & related health risks can be avoided! Parents do need to regulate there kids. Manufactures need to regulate there packaging, sales & marketing!
