from journal Circulation Research

Very little I’ve read supports e-cigarette use among teens. On the contrary, nearly all the scientific evidence shows short-term and lifetime health risks. The latest comes from the American Heart Association suggesting e-cigarette use over a lifetime increases the risk of cardiovascular and lung disease. The statement, appearing in the journal Circulation Research, urges action to reduce e-cigarette use among teens, including removing all flavored e-cigarettes from the market. The FDA has taken action against some types of e-cigarettes. All that said, some people consider e-cigarettes as an aid to stop smoking traditional cigarettes. Instead, they may end up using both.
