Seizures and Vaping – level 1

12-04-2019 15:00

An American government organisation has 35 reports from 2010–2019. These reports show that people have seizures after they use e-cigarettes.

The organisation is worried. It wants to know more. It asks people to give more information.  They can put the problems on its website.

Young people are in many of the reports. It is not obvious if vaping makes the seizures happen. However, cigarettes or e-cigarettes can make seizures happen. They have nicotine in them which can cause seizures. Nicotine is a chemical.

Difficult words: government (the group of people who are the leaders/bosses of a country), seizure (when your brain suddenly stops working correctly), vape (smoke an e-cigarette).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
