The potential health hazards of vaping for teens

vaping WFewer teens are picking up smoking these days, but what they are doing instead could be even more dangerous and toxic than cigarettes.

Nationally and locally, teens are “vaping” or using “e-cigarettes,” which deliver nicotine and other chemicals in vapor form through a battery-operated device. And manufacturer-added flavors, such as chocolate and strawberry, contribute to the appeal.

The bitter facts about sugar

Many parents have no idea just how much sugar their children are eating.

Most would never pack two Krispy Kreme glazed donuts for their children’s lunch. Instead, they’d probably opt for more traditional items like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich on whole wheat bread, yogurt, an apple and a juice box.
