Michigan State University Helps You Understand Vaping

Data Shows A Rising Number of Young People Using E-Cigarettes


When they go for
the respiratory system,
chronic lung diseases
like emphysema
leave their victim fighting
for every breath.
MATT HOLBROOK: Yep,
this is really gross...
..and it's meant to be.
Over the years,
the Australian government
has paid for ads like this
to teach us about
the dangers of smoking,
and it's mostly worked.
The number of kids
and young people smoking
has been falling for years.
Now just 1% of 12 to 17-year-olds
in Australia smoke daily.
But there are worries
that more young people
are picking up a different habit.
One in 10 young people in Australia
have tried an e-cigarette,
and of those, one third had used
an e-cigarette in the past month.
E-cigarettes first came on the scene
in the noughties.
They don't contain tobacco
or some of the other chemicals
that are in cigarettes,
and some people say
it's helped them quit smoking.
But that doesn't necessarily mean
they're safe,
which is why Australia
has strict laws about them.
They're only allowed to be sold
to people over 18.
It's also illegal in Australia
to sell vaping juice
that contains nicotine.
That's the poisonous chemical
in cigarettes
that makes them addictive.
They're not allowed
to be advertised either
but there are worries
the packaging and the flavours
make them appealing to kids.
If you were to put them
next to lollies
or packages for popcorn,
you wouldn't be able
to tell the difference.
So, the vials are
very, very colourful,
they're really enticing
towards the adolescents
and young adults.
Many see that as a big problem.
Experts say
there's a lot we don't know
about the health effects of vaping.
Recently in the US,
there have been lots of reports
of people getting lung diseases
which some think
are related to vaping.
They have different laws over there
about e-cigarettes,
and while it's not known exactly
what caused so many people
to get sick,
America's Food
and Drug Administration, or FDA,
is planning to ban the sale
of all flavoured e-cigarettes,
except for the ones
that are tobacco flavoured.
Authorities say
it's to protect young people.
We have a problem in our country.
It's a new problem.
It's a problem nobody
really thought about too much...
..uh, a few years ago,
and it's called vaping,
especially vaping as it pertains
to innocent children.
And they're coming home
and they're saying,
"Mom, I want to vape."
Back in Australia,
there are no changes planned
to e-cigarettes,
but experts say the best advice is
to simply stay away.
