Autism risk in children could be predicted by mutations in paternal sperm The Society strongly endorsed a Trump Administration plan to remove all non-tobacco flavored e-cigarettes from the market, including menthol, when the plan was announced on September 11, 2019. A full flavor ban would help dramatically reverse the skyrocketing levels of underage e-cigarette use. Studies have shown that flavors attract young people to use these addictive products, and if any e-cigarette flavors are left on the market, kids are expected to migrate to them. Recent research shows that youth use of mint and menthol e-cigarettes soared after Juul restricted the availability of other flavors, like mango, in November 2018. In addition, more than half of current youth smokers use menthol cigarettes, according to the 2019 National Youth Tobacco Survey. STS remains fully committed to patient safety and strongly urges the Administration to implement its original plan to clear the market of all flavored e-cigarettes, including menthol. Source:
