Malaysia, don’t wait for the law to protect children from the dangers of nicotine


After talking to 8,000 schoolchildren on vaping, Subbarow says 'Children don’t realise they're addictive' because vape products 'often highlight fruit flavours'. — 123rf.com

Parents, protect your children. Tell them to beware of the thousands of vape products flooding the market, targeting children with bright colours, fruity flavours, and cute cartoons. Tell them that while children can now legally vape (crazy, yes), vaping has been shown to cause lung scarring (“popcorn lungs”), organ damage, and breathing problems.

Tell them that ecigarettes and vapes in Malaysia can be highly addictive, comprising even 5% liquid nicotine – close to the level where it is toxic (6%) and far above concentrations in countries regulating vape (2%-3%).
