(HealthDay News) -- Nicotine use among teens is soaring, but not because of traditional cigarettes. E-cigarettes are the most common form of smoking among youth in the United States, the National Institute on Drug Abuse for Teens says.
Although they're commonly marketed as safer alternatives, they still put teens at risk, the agency says. Young people who use nicotine are at risk for long-lasting effects.
Potential effects include:
- Learning deficiencies.
- Decrease in attention span.
- Decrease in impulse control.
- Mood disorders.
- Increased likelihood to use drugs.
