Surgeon General report: E-cigarette use a 'major public health concern'

viernes, 9 de diciembre de 2016

E-cigarette use among youth has increased in recent years at an "alarming rate" and public health professionals and others must work together to address it, the U.S. Surgeon General said in a report released Dec. 7.

E-cigarettes, or devices that deliver nicotine, flavorings and other additives to users via an inhaled aerosol, in 2014 surpassed conventional cigarettes as the mostly commonly used tobacco product among youth, according to the report, which is aimed at raising public health concern about e-cigarette use.

"All Americans need to know that e-cigarettes are dangerous to youth and young adults," said U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Vivek H. Murthy in a news release about the report, which is said to be the first comprehensive federal review of the public health impact of e-cigarettes on U.S. youth (ages 11-17) and young adults (18-24). "Any tobacco use, including e-cigarettes, is a health threat, particularly to young people."
