A Dublin professor has expressed his concern for young people as he says that vaping is being promoted on TikTok.
Professor Des Cox, chair of Royal College of Physicians Policy Group on Tobacco is worried about the increasing trend of vaping in young people under the age of 18 and he believes that social media is playing a part in it. He told RTE Radio One: “There’s a big issue with the marketing of disposable vapes and the most common form of advertising for people in a recent study was through TikTok. Manufacturers' tactics are that they’re trying to get young people hooked on these devices. That’s what’s concerning.”
