Vaping: Is it really that harmful? What are the side effects and dangers to young people?

Vaping in Scotland is on the rise. Worryingly, there’s been an increase in the number of children and teenagers vaping, and this is causing concern. To tackle this problem, the Scottish Government is launching a vaping information campaign to help stamp out the growing habit among children and young people. The campaign targets parents and carers of children aged between 10 and 17 and encourages them to talk to their children about the serious health risks of vaping, getting them to rethink picking up a vape and beginning a habit that could have harmful consequences.

12.90% of the adult population are current smokers. There are approximately 7.2 million current smokers in United Kingdom 14.60% of men are current smokers but only 11.20% of women.
