4 Your Health: Teens making E-cigarettes more risky

Posted: Updated:

Tucson- The popularity of E-cigarettes continues to grow among young people. And now a warning about "dripping".

A new study finds one quarter of teens who use E-cigarettes have tried dripping liquid nicotine directly onto the heating coils of the device.

Dripping creates a thicker vapor cloud and many teens said it gives a better flavor and a stronger hit. While there is no proof that dripping causes any additional health risks, it may expose users to higher levels of toxic chemicals.

If your pet is taking any type of medication be sure to store it away from small children.

The Central Ohio Poison Center received more than 1,400 calls over 15 years about children exposed to veterinary drugs. Most kids swallowed medication that was left on a counter or a food bowl but some touched an animal with topical cream, which transferred to their own skin.

And despite some challenges, most adult survivors of childhood cancers go on to have fulfilling love lives.

Researchers looked at the sexual development of over 100 survivors and their peers with no history of cancer.

Survivors had fewer romantic partners and those who underwent more toxic treatments were least likely to be sexually active or have children. But despite the findings the experts said the survivors were not necessarily less satisfied.
