Young Adults Don’t Know What’s in Nicotine Products They Vape

Nicotine pods used for vaping need clearer labels to help young people understand what they are inhaling, a Stanford study concludes.

“Teens are not using these pod-based products more than other e-cigarettes because of health or the flavors offered,” Halpern-Felsher said. “They tell us, ‘It’s because we can hide these, and the smell produced is less obvious.’ This ability to ‘stealth use’ is concerning.”
