Recent Study: Negative Effects of Vaping

Principal Pugh and administrators continue to educate our school community by providing updated information on various topics in our society today. released a recent study on vaping, calling it a ‘National Epidemic’ with devastating effects on our youth.   
The Food and Drug Administration said Wednesday that vaping may increase the risk of seizures in young people.
“We have reports indicating that some people who use e-cigarettes, especially youth and young adults, are experiencing seizures following their use,” FDA Commissioner Dr. Scott Gottlieb said in a statement.
Since 2010, the FDA has received 35 reports of seizures among teenagers using e-cigarettes. It's not clear that vaping is solely responsible — some of the seizures occurred in those who were vaping for the first time. Others were using other drugs at the time or may have had an underlying medical condition.
