Smoking is not meant for children, similar for vapes too.
Recently, the Inforoadblock Facebook page shared a video of a toddler being given a vape from which she takes a sip. The page added that the incident is believed to have taken place in Sabah.
“A viral video of a child that is a year old or more, being given a smoking pod (electronic cigarette) by her parent.” it wrote in the post.
In the video, the little girl can be seen given the vape by an adult before she takes a sip and blowing it out through her nose.
Surprisingly, the adult seemed proud that the toddler knew how to do that and wrote in the caption of the video “through the nose”.
Meanwhile, vaping can be dangerous for children. According to Kids Health, vaping puts nicotine into the body, which can be highly addictive.
Other side effects in children are slowing their brain development and affecting memory, concentration, learning, self-control, attention and mood.
Apart from that, allowing children to use e-cigarettes may lead to irritation in the lungs, serious lung damage and even death.
Eventually, it will increase the risk of other types of addiction as they grow older.
With that, we hope that the authorities will take action against the irresponsible adult who gave the little girl the vape and for teaching her such bad habits at such a young age.
