NEWS FLASH! (I’m being sarcastic),
California health officials said in a report on January 28th that electronic cigarettes are a health threat, especially to children, and should be strictly regulated the way tobacco products are. The officials said e-cigarettes emit cancer-causing chemicals and also get users addicted to nicotine. The report came out one day after new U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murthy said that public health officials are, quote, “in desperate need of clarity” about e-cigarettes. Researchers haven’t finished much research on e-cigarettes, and what has been done came out with inconclusive results.
I knew that it was only a matter of time before a report like this came out. I honestly thought, when the e-cigs were on the rise, that there was something unsafe about it. Now we know.
