    I came across an article about the use of vaping among adolescents a few hours ago. It basically touched on the fact that the CDC is not being forthcoming with the statistics of adolescent vaping. From my understanding , the CDC is bunching non-tobacco vaping into the same category as traditional cigarette smoking when in all actuality, non tobacco vaping is actually 95 percent less hazardous. I think they are putting it into the same category to negate smoking period. I guess if the numbers look bad enough, the parents will be afraid enough to get them to quit. What are your thoughts? I have included the link as well

    However, I can't see how faking some numbers in order to make people tell their children that vaping is dangerous and they shouldn't do it at least until they are 21, is a bad thing. Anyway, lately it seems that I have seen a lot more teenagers and teens who are vaping my country, as it seems that they are adapting easier than adults and elders are to this "new-age smoking".

    I do not really understand those senseless articles, when will they understand that vaping is not an unhelathy thing, just because you're smoking it does not mean it is bad at all!

    Data contradiction, teenager consumption decline Denial, couples e cigarettes with traditional cigar, hyphotesizes unfounded fears .Hahaha It stinks fallacy all over it. Hahaha. All people out there should regard this retarded "very scientific" Press Release as a practice sheet to detect inanities.

    There's a ton of kids vaping these days. The statistics will never show the truth, because they are using such a small sample size to go off of. I see kids in front of the high school I used to go to vaping after school in the parking lot. They're probably doing a little more than that too. The fact of the matter is if it's available a teen will get there hands on it. I'd much rather see a teen vaping then smoking cigarettes like I did back in high school.

    Vaping is the least of kids problems these days. Teenagers have been doing way worse things for a VERY long time, every generation does some rebelling, and this is the issue they want to get up in arms about? Them focusing on vaping is a case of them not seeing the forest for the trees.

    I'm not entirely sure I'm against the way they lump it together. Vaping is vaping at the end of the day. As long as they make a note of it, I wouldn't have much of a problem with it. You are absolutely right though that vaping no nicotine is certainly different than vaping nicotine juices.

    It is almost the same discussion as smoking and teenagers, or underage drinking or DUI. Vaping is just another form on smoking (less damaging for sure) so it is frequent to see the media talk about it I guess.
