Why do teens think e-cigs are cool?

(NaturalNews) What is the measurement, the "dilution" of nicotine you are receiving with your e-cig nic fit? Do you know? Does it say on the side of the juice "loader" - the "nic-juice" cartridge? Who loaded it, some "reputable company" who exports it from China? What's their guarantee and is that guarantee extended to minors? Does the FDA regulate it? Why not?

E-cigs don't fall under the umbrella of tobacco, so the FDA doesn't have "jurisdiction" - or do they? There's a lot of money to be made, in fact, electronic cigarette sales have doubled in the past couple years. Big investors and no regulations - sounds like Obamacare! Hey, kids, if you want to take a chance with your life and health, just check out the latest craze. It's like a hotel that you check in to but may never be able to check out of. Could it be a trap, a GATEWAY DRUG that leads to commercial "grade" cigarettes? That nicotine is treated with ammonia and delivers about 100mg of nicotine potency per cigarette. I wonder, how much do you get with each e-cig puff or "drag?" Only time will tell.

You see them in parking lots and behind the football stadiums, puffing on what looks like a cigarette, or even a mini-hookah (hukka). You see teenagers laughing and sharing and thinking that they can quit whenever they want, especially because it's not a commercial "grade" cancer stick. Oh, but it looks like one, with the little red tip that lights up, and the "smoke" that comes out, that nifty white vapor. Reminds me of candy cigarettes, and why were those ever legal? Big Tobacco surely had stock in candy cigarettes, along with the American Medical Association (AMA). Didn't they have ads in JAMA of doctors and dentists recommending cigarettes in the 1930s, or am I just hallucinating from the "nic-juice" in my e-cig? Electronic cigarettes and their nicotine juice have all kinds of COOL nicknames to entice the kids and the teens to try it, hooking them on nicotine, the world's THIRD most addicting drug, running close behind cocaine and heroin. Who'd - a - thunk, huh?

What kind of "e-juice" do you have, and does it contain some antifreeze? Wait, you didn't know? (http://www.naturalnews.com)

E-cigs are NOT safe for kids or teens

The research is still "hazy" to say the least. Yet 40 state attorneys general have sent letters to the FDA urging action. Still, you see many media reviews and specials on television touting them, claiming that they are "safer" than commercial "cigs," because they contain less chemical ingredients. Since when are "some" toxins safe at all? Hey, I'm only smoking a little bit of the world's third most addicting drug, and it has less antifreeze! I think its even doctor recommended, but that may have been the other kind, I can't remember. According to the CDC, the total number of middle and high school students smoking e-cigs DOUBLED from 2011 to 2012. 10 percent have at least tried them. Middle school starts in 6th grade, not 7th like when they had junior highs back in the day. That means 11-year-olds are checkin' out some nicotine just to see how cool it is, and wondering if they'll keep doing it, by choice of course! Because that's what it is, right, a choice, when you decide whether or not to continue using the world's third most addicting drug? What's the fourth most addicting drug? HFCS, GMO corn sugar? Plus, many e-cig juices contain DIETHYELENE GLYCOL, an ingredient in antifreeze used as a "cheap substitute for the thickening agent glycerine." Where do you think the "cool" cloud of smoke comes from? Hey kids, look! It's like when you suck on a candy cigarette and blow out some corn sugar powder. Neat-o! Where are the prohibitions of the sale of e-cig devices to minors? Scarce are any, and e-cigs can be ordered online with a click of your mouse.

Nicotine affects the brain and central nervous system

Nicotine interferes with brain development. Insert Obamacare and the DSM-5 manual on psychotherapy and here come all the pharmaceuticals that have side effects of depression, anxiety, bipolarity and of course thoughts of suicide. Add in some horrific violent "real to life" video simulations like GTA 5 (Grand Theft Auto 5) and some "Modern Warfare" and what have you got? Although the industry touts e-cigs as safe, and anyone who got off commercial cigs will brag about them too, they are a health nemesis for children and teens, offering them a dangerous way to begin a dangerous habit that they may never quit. There are 45,000,000 smokers in the United States, and half want to quit. If kids pick up e-cigs thinking they're cool, commercial cigarette addiction could be just a "hop, skip and a jump" away.

If you already smoke electronic cigarettes and you don't like being addicted to nicotine, you can go from e-cigs to "no cigs" in 14 days or less using the all natural method to stop smoking called 14 & Out, available as a downloadable video and paperback book. Doctors and the Health Ranger recommend it (http://premium.naturalnews.tv).
