Electronic Cigarettes: A Shocking Caution

Are e-cigarettes really safer than the real thing?

Electronic nicotine delivery devices (e-cigarettes) are a rapidly spreading fad in the USA and other countries. They pose special risks to children and adolescents. The devices are widely marketed on the internet as both safe and better for the environment. But FDA analysis points to the fact that even those labeled "nicotine free" actually deliver varying amounts of nicotine and diethylene glycol.

PositiveTip: Encourage your children to avoid e-cigarettes and resist the aggressive marketing schemes that target youth.
