"We will not stand idly by as these products become an on-ramp to combustible cigarettes or nicotine addiction for a generation of youth". He added that the issue concerns US First Lady Melania Trump as well.

"Health Canada is concerned about the uptake in youth vaping and has been pursuing a comprehensive suite of actions to address youth vaping, including a national public education campaign to increase awareness about the harms and risks associated with vaping products". The devices, available in the United States since 2006, work instead by heating a liquid that turns into vapor and is inhaled. Every school should have a curriculum that provides information on vaping, including the various destructive chemicals found in vaping pods.

Trump, whose son Barron is 13 years old, said vaping has become such a problem that he wants parents to be aware of what's happening.

The proposed ban on flavors is expected to take several weeks to implement.

"People think it's an easy solution to cigarettes, but it's turned out that it has its own difficulties", Trump told reporters at the White House as he held a meeting with the Health Secretary on vaping. No single vaping device, ingredient or additive has been identified as the cause. The only way to solve the current vaping crisis is for adults to take personal responsibility for their actions. We must act swiftly against flavored e-cigarette products that are especially attractive to children. The jarring rate at which teens have adopted devices like the compact, easy-to-hide one made by Juul Labs Inc. has made health officials in Washington and around the country snap to attention. They argue that flavoring is largely to blame for a rise in vaping among US teenagers. Metal levels are actually comparable to or even higher in e-cigarettes than they are in traditional cigarettes, even though vaporizer companies try to paint these products as healthier in every way. But "at that point all flavored e-cigarettes other than tobacco flavor would have to be removed from the market". That includes menthol, common in real cigarettes.

Martin Dockrell, head of tobacco control at PHE, said it plans to publish a comprehensive evidence review on the safety of e-cigarettes early next year.

Azar suggested that the ban on flavors could be the first step of many to keep children from vaping. Juul, one of the best known manufacturers, has grown into a huge business by selling mint, fruit and dessert flavored-nicotine products. The agency notes that scientists still have a lot to learn about whether e-cigarettes are effective for quitting smoking, and that additional research is needed to understand long-term health effects.

"Any tobacco product use, including e-cigarettes, is unsafe for youth".

Cardenas, a lawyer and senior partner at Squire Patton Boggs, later retweeted a story stating that a Mexican man in ICE custody in IL since last week died on Tuesday, marking the eighth death in the federal agency's custody this year.

Health officials have called the trend an "epidemic", and they fear teenagers who vape will eventually start smoking.

More than 80 percent of underage teens who use e-cigarettes say they picked their product because it "comes in flavors that I like", according to government surveys.
