What you need to know about vaping from the experts


CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL TO SPEAK TO MY FRIEND, DR. LOWERY. ♪ MARANDA: IT IS TIME TO TALK VAPING. DR. LOWRY, AND TEENS ARE VAPING, IT IS A REALITY. YES, YOUNGER, FREQUENT, AND MORE OFTEN PRINT PARENTS NEED TO BE AWARE. MARANDA: WHAT DO PARENTS NEED TO KNOW? PARENTS NEED TO BE AWARE THAT EVEN YOUR 11-YEAR-OLD OR 12-YEAR-OLD CAN BE EXPOSED TO VAPING. MARANDA: THOSE ARE YOUNG NUMBERS. IT IS. BUT IF YOU ASK AND TALK TO THEM, IT GOES ON AT THE SCHOOL, AND THEY MAY NOT BE DOING IT, BUT THEY KNOW SOMEONE AND HAVE THEIR FRIENDS WERE VAPING. MARANDA: WHY IS IT SO DANGEROUS BECAUSE THERE IS THE PERCEPTION THAT IT BEATS SMOKING A CIGARETTE? IT IS THE PERCEPTION THAT IT IS SAFER NICOTINE BECAUSE YOU ARE NOT VAPING NICOTINE, BUT AS MORE AND MORE PEOPLE ARE VAPING, WE NOTICE MORE AND MORE COMPLICATIONS. RISK OF SEIZURES, LUNG INFECTIONS, RESPIRATORY ILLNESSES, SO UNFORTUNATELY, THE MORE PEOPLE VAPE, THE MORE INCIDENTS OF THE CHALLENGES THAT WE ARE HAVING AND PEOPLE ARE VAPING MORE. WHEN YOU SMOKE A CIGARETTE SCUMMY SMOKING CIGARETTES. WHEN YOU SMOKE MARIJUANA, YOU ARE AT THE AND OF A JOINT, BUT VAPING, PEOPLE ARE VAPING OVER AND OVER, AND YOU CAN TAKE 10 OR 20 PUFFS, AND YOU CAN SMOKE MORE THAN A PACK OF CIGARETTES IN ONE DAY. SO WHAT IS YOUR ADVICE FOR PARENTS WHEN IT COMES TO VAPING, BECAUSE I FEEL LIKE IT IS EVERYWHERE. WE PROBABLY HAVE MARGINALIZED TO SAY IT IS OK. PART OF THAT IS WHEN VAPING FIRST CAME OUT, A LOT PEOPLE SAW FOR ADULTS IT WAS A WAY TO STOP SMOKING. AND FOR ADULTS, SOME PEOPLE HAVE USED IT. BUT IT IS HAPPENING, IT IS OUT THERE, AND LIKE ANY CONVERSATION THAT YOU HAVE LIKE WEARING A SEATBELT, NOT DRINKING, NOT SMOKING, BEING AWARE THAT VAPING IS OUT THERE, UNLIKE SOME OF THOSE, YOU WILL SMELL CIGARETTE SMOKE, YOU WILL SMELL MARIJUANA IF IT IS SMOKING, BUT HER VAPING, IT USUALLY IS ODORLESS. DESPITE WHAT SOME PEOPLE ARE SAYING WITH MARKETING, IT IS MARKETING THAT IS INTENTIONAL TO YOUNG PEOPLE. BUBBLEGUM, FROOT LOOPS, SERIAL FLAVORS. MARANDA: SO YOU’RE NUMBER ONE MESSAGE IS VAPING IS NOT AS SAFE AS YOU THINK IT IS. BE AWARE. LIKE WITH ANYTHING, HAVE THE CONSISTENT ONGOING CONVERSATION WITH YOUR TEENAGER, YOUNG ADULTS, AND EVEN YOUR TWEENS. MARANDA: THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME.
