Australian experts report there is a ‘vaping epidemic’ sweeping across the country, impacting young Australians the most.

A study from the Australian National University (ANU) revealed adolescents smoking vapes were three times more likely to start smoking cigarettes.

Health Minister Mark Butler says vaping is now the biggest behavioural issue in primary schools across the country, making this important now more than ever for young Australians to be aware of the health effects of vaping, and the health of those around them. 

The Wire’s Chloe White spoke to Australian Scientist and advocate on the harms of vaping, Dr Karl Kruszelnicki  on the necessity for more education on vaping truths and the health concerns that come with vaping, especially at a young age.
