Caring for Children, BBPPKS Padang Promotes Vape Hazard
PADANG (March 11, 2020) - Laboratory Installation of Professional Social Work and Media Practices Laboratory of the Center for Education and Training (BBPPKS) Padang Promotes Vape Hazards to Youths at SMPN 7 Kota Pariaman, West Sumatra.
In this socialization, BBPPKS Padang gave an explanation of the Dangers of this Vape.
The assumptions that exist in the community who consider Vape safer to smoke than cigarettes are beyond mistaken.
Nicotine, a dangerous substance contained in cigarettes is also available on Vape. Everything can cause addiction (craving), headache, depression, lung cancer and narrowing of blood vessels, as well as heart attacks which lead to death.
In addition to children, nicotine exposure from Vape can discuss brain development and improve memory. The long-term effects of nicotine cause life problems in children such as mental health problems, problem problems, and actual changes in brain structure.
This information is what would be conveyed by the Installation of the Professional Practice Laboratory of Social Work and the Media of the Padang Social Welfare Education and Training Center (BBPPKS) through the Vape Hazard Socialization event on Tuesday (10/3).
At the time of socialization, it was revealed the fact of the 30 students, 99% agreed to be exposed to Vape, both for fun and fulfilling curiosity due to association. But there are also those who claim to use wine because they like the taste, coffee and wine are their favorite choices.
Of course this is quite surprising and needs to be the attention and concern of all parties to prevent the widespread expenditure of Vape use on children and adolescents considering the importance it causes.
The Vape Hazard Socialization Activity for Teenagers at SMPN 7 School took place using a fun method. Submission of material presented is also interactive.
It is expected that participants stop using Vape and don't try to buy again, also they can learn to learn and not easily discuss negative things that are obtained from peers, the environment and the internet.
The activity was attended by 30 students from grade 7 and 8.
