Parents speak out about the risks of vaping




NO USE ABC AMERICA, FOX, CNN, UNIVISION, TELEMUNDO, BBC AMERICA, NBC, OR THEIR DIGITAL/MOBILE PLATFORMS. NO USE CHICAGO, ILLINOIS MEDIA MARKET WEBSITES.** Tim Johnson is warning of the dangers of vaping, after his daughter nearly died from pneumonia related to her use of the tobacco products.

Her mother Ruby Johnson insists all children need to be educated about the dangers of vaping.

The Food and Drug Administration has found the oil in vaping products used by everyone who has gotten sick was contaminated with an oil derived from Vitamin E.

Illinois and Oregon have both reported deaths from respiratory illnesses tied to e-cigarettes.

The Centers for Disease Control reported at least 215 possible cases of vaping-related illnesses in 25 states as of August 27.

Exposure to secondhand chemicals emitted from e-cigarettes is on the rise among middle- and high-school students, a new study suggests.

A survey that included tens of thousands of U.S. teens found that exposure to secondhand aerosols from e-cigarettes rose from one in four students in 2015 to one in three in 2018, researchers reported in JAMA Network Open.

Other research has found that secondhand exposure to e-cigarette vapor can "pose health risks to bystanders," said the study's lead author Andy Tan, an assistant professor in social and behavioral sciences at the Dana Farber Cancer Institute and the Harvard T.H.

Chan School of Public Health in Boston.

"The vapor contains elevated levels of nicotine, particulate matter, glycerin propylene glycol, formaldehyde, polycyclic aromatic carbons and heavy metals," Tan said.

"These substances are known to have health risks in vulnerable populations, including children and teens."
