PH among top 10 countries for asthma mortality

The Philippines ranks No. 9 in asthma mortality, with up to 7.9 percent of approximately 315 million suffering from the ailment globally. The prevalence of asthma in the Philippines alone was reported at 26.7 percent back in 2002, according to data from the National Asthma Epidemiology Survey.

It resembles a flash drive, but instead of computer files, this device stores nicotine. They take a hit, sucking on the device as they would a cigarette. Then, "they blow into their backpacks ... or into their sweater when the teacher isn't looking," said Elijah Luna, 16, a sophomore at Vista del Lago High School in Folsom, California, about 30 miles east of Sacramento. The vapor cloud is so small and dissipates so quickly that teachers are usually none the wiser, said Luna, who added he's never tried ...Keep on reading: Juul’s so ‘cool,’ kids smoke it in school.....»»
