Effects of nicotine to the health of unborn children.
The US Surgeon General has concluded that nicotine-containing products are harmful to pregnant mothers and their unborn children. Sick infant syndrome, decreased brain and lung development, auditory processing issues, behavioral and obesity effects, and attention and cognition deficiencies are only a few of the long-term repercussions of fetal nicotine exposure.
Studies have also shown that fetal nicotine exposure is linked to adolescent nicotine addiction. To avoid needless nicotine exposure, pregnant women and women planning to become pregnant should avoid e-cigarettes.
