Corboy & Demetrio Releases PSA on Danger of Youth and Teen Vaping
Corboy & Demetrio, like the public, is concerned with the growing rate of adolescents who are using e-cigarettes, many candy-flavored and seen by our youth in advertisements. E-cigarette use among U.S. middle and high school students increased 900% during 2011-2015. Currently, more than 3.6 millions U.S. youth are vaping, according to CDC statistics.
While vaping can be a safer alternative for longtime smokers of tobacco, we believe it is dangerous and a significant health risk for adolescents who have never smoked.

The Surgeon General warns that adolescents are “uniquely at risk” for long-term effects of exposing their developing brains to nicotine. The risks include nicotine addiction, mood disorders, and permanent lowering of impulse control. Nicotine can also be harmful to the parts of the brain that control attention and learning.
