Celebrating Arbor Day

Celebrate National Arbor Day Last Friday of April – Plant a tree or take a walk in the woods today and enjoy connecting with nature. Dogtown and Ravenswood in Gloucester and Coolidge Reservation in Manchester-by-the-sea are favorite places to enjoy a peaceful and relaxing walk in the woods. The Arnold Arboretum in Boston is another great place. For more strenuous hiking, head to the Green and White Mountains of Vermont and New Hampshire or Acadia National Park in Maine. #NationalArborDay

National Kick Butts (and E-Cigarettes) Day

E-cigarettes pose serious health risks for kids. “The U.S. Surgeon General has found that youth use of nicotine in any form – including e-cigarettes – is unsafe, causes addiction and can harm the developing adolescent brain, affecting learning, memory and attention. Studies also show that young people who use          e-cigarettes are more likely to become cigarette smokers.”

Use of Electronic Cigarettes by Teenagers is On the Rise – According to a survey supported by the FDA and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) “E-cigarette use among high school students had skyrocketed from 1.5 percent in 2011 to 16 percent in 2015 (a more than 900 % increase.) 

A Cochrane Review of the literature included 2 small preliminary studies looking at electronic cigarettes showed they may help reduction tobacco use, but more long-term study looking at negative side-effects is needed.  Electronic cigarettes are NOT approved by the Federal Drug Administration (FDA.)

The U.S. Federal Drug Administration (FDA) finalized new rules for tobacco products August 2016.

Electronic Cigarettes (E-cigarettes) – contain nicotine, the addictive component found in cigarettes and may promote smoking. E-cigarettes are also known to contain heavy metals and carcinogens and while less so than cigarettes, e-cigarettes are still considered dangerous. Some people continue to smoke while using e-cigarettes, adding to their risk. E-cigarettes can lead to nicotine addiction for those just starting, and re-ignite addiction in those that have stopped smoking cigarettes. There is no safe nicotine product.

Dangers of Electronic Cigarette Batteries Igniting and more information about electronic cigarettes.    E-Cigarettes and vaporizers have been banned on planes due to danger of exploding and risk of fire.
