U.S. Surgeon General warns about e-cigarette usage


The U.S. Surgeon General made a call to action for parents, teachers and health professionals.

Doctor Jerome Adams is warning about the spike in e-cigarette use in teenagers.

Adams issued an advisory Tuesday about the negative health consequences of e-cigarettes.

He says one out of five high school students is currently using the product.

One survey reported a 50-percent increase in vaping among middle school-age children.

Adams says no amount of nicotine is safe.

The chemical can do particular damage to young brains because they are still developing.
