E-cigarettes appear to be dangerous products

E-cigarettes were introduced to the world as another means to assist people in their desire to quit smoking. E-cigarette use morphed from being a smoking cessation tool to the latest fad among teens in Tennessee and elsewhere. In recent months, the juice used in the electronic smoking devices has resulted in them being identified as potentially dangerous products.

Recently, many teenagers have been hospitalized with severe breathing problems in several states. The one common denominator was that many reportedly used electronic cigarette devices in the weeks leading up to their illness. Some of the teens experienced seizures that could not be readily explained.

Use of e-cigarettes is increasing in popularity among the nations middle and high school students. According to a report released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), one in 20 middle school students and one in five high school students say they have tried it. The Cumberland County Sheriff's office recently announced that it would destroy any and all tobacco products, including e-cigarettes, found to be in the possession of a minor. This followed a report from the FDA that the agency was opening an investigation into a possible link between the use of the devices and seizures.

Protecting the health and well-being of the children of Tennessee is paramount. Seeing one's child suffer and being helpless to ameliorate the suffering is a horrible feeling. If a child in Tennessee has suffered an ailment that may have been caused by the use of dangerous products such as e-cigarettes, a conversation with a legal professional may apprise one of legal options that may be available.
