E-cigarettes, a tobacco product
Dr. Michael Hernandez
E-cigarettes have nicotine derived from tobacco, so they are considered a tobacco product. Michael Hernandez, Critical Care & Pulmonary Medicine Physician, at South Miami Hospital, highlights the recommendations are avoiding the use of e-cigarettes or vaping around pregnant women, people with lung conditions and around kids as well.
He says teenagers are using this delivery device and getting heavily addicted on nicotine and it is becoming a gateway to combustible cigarettes.
