There’s a new epidemic in the United States, and as of 2017, more than 2 million teenagers are involved. They’re using e-cigarettes, otherwise known as vaping. Recently, the FDA created a new education campaign to warn teens about the risks of vaping. It is an extension of the “Real Cost Youth E-Cigarette Prevention Campaign.” It will also place warning ads in 10,000 high school bathrooms across the country. Dr. Vaughan Rees joins us today to discuss this epidemic and ways that we can spread awareness. Dr. Rees is the Director of the Center for Global Tobacco Control and a Lecturer on Social and Behavioral Sciences at the Harvard Chan School of Public Health.
