Abstract: According to foreign reports, parents have been warned because electronic cigarettes are banned in schools in Britain.
According to foreign reports, parents have been warned because electronic cigarettes are banned in British schools.
A 10-year-old child was found smoking flavored electronic cigarettes in the toilet during lunch break.
Evelyn Forde, principal of the Mill Hill Cophall School in northern London, said that e-cigarettes were not allowed - but children still smoked e-cigarettes.
Ms. Forde now wants to spend thousands of pounds installing sensors to prevent students from using them in the toilet.
She said that electronic cigarettes are prohibited in our school. They are prohibited like cigarettes or knives.
"We attach great importance to this matter because we see the threat to their health."
Teachers ask parents and older siblings not to buy electronic cigarettes for minors because they contain.
According to the annual YouGov smoke-free adolescent smoking and health action survey, the proportion of children who smoke electronic cigarettes more than once a week has increased from 1.3% in 2020 to 3.1% in 2022.
Experts now warn that the fear of electronic cigarettes will not only lead to brain development problems, but also may become a way for other drugs.
Ministers are also discussing how to prevent electronic cigarettes by taxing disposable atomizers such as ElfBars.
The price can be raised to the same level as the reusable vaporizer, so that children can't afford it.
Sir Chris Whitty warned this week that as the number continues to rise, the country must combat the use of electronic cigarettes by children.
The outspoken health director said it was totally unacceptable to sell these products to young people.
He explained that some brands are specifically targeted at children and should not be allowed to do so.
Although this will disrupt the booming industry, charities and activists strongly support these proposals.
These plans were proposed as part of the government's response to the Khan review on smoking.
The report calls on ministers to do their best to prevent children and young people from smoking electronic cigarettes, including prohibiting child-friendly packaging and descriptions.
It was also suggested that the age of smoking should be raised every year to help solve the electronic cigarette crisis in Britain.
