Abstract

Electronic cigarettes, or e-cigarettes, were introduced to the American market in the late 2000’s and have been rising in popularity since. While some states have bans on selling e-cigarettes to those under 21, incidence of vaping has continued to increase in the under 18 population. Although e-cigarettes were initially touted as a “healthier” option to traditional cigarettes, new research coupled with the recent outbreak of vaping associated lung injuries is proving otherwise. This review will examine current vaping trends in adolescents, as well as associated health implications.
