FDA said in a note issued by the tobacco product connectivity forum Center: ““ new information is particularly focused on how nicotine is addictive to adolescents.”.
This is the first time that FDA has explicitly solved the problem of teenagers using electronic cigarettes. The The Real Cost campaign launched in February 2014 focused on millions of teenagers who started smoking or had tried cigarettes when they were 12 to 17 years old.
A study supported by the FDA independent research institute shows that this award-winning movement has stopped smoking among teenagers aged 350 thousand and 11 to 18 between 2014 and 2016. In view of this, taking into account the current use of electronic cigarettes in about 2000000 American teenagers, the agency is expanding The Real Cost, in order to clearly respond to smoking behavior of adolescents.
FDA director Scott Gottlieb said: ““ expanding our very successful public education, including informing young people about the dangers of using these products, is an important part of helping kids stay away from all tobacco products.”.
