By Any Name, All E-Cigarettes are the Same
It doesn't matter what they are called, they all use a battery to heat up a liquid.  The liquid comes in many flavors and nicotine levels, and it is not just water vapor but an aerosol that contains many chemicals and can leave a residue in the lungs causing damage.

Influenza (Flu)

Influenza causes more hospitalizations among young children than any other vaccine-preventable disease. The single best way to protect against seasonal flu and its potential severe complications is for children to get a seasonal influenza vaccine each year. Flu vaccination is recommended for all children aged 6 months and older. Making healthy choices at school and at home can help prevent the flu and spreading flu to others.
 

Influenza (gripe)

La influenza causa más hospitalizaciones entre los niños pequeños que cualquier otra enfermedad prevenible por vacunación. La mejor manera de protegerse contra la influenza estacional y sus posibles complicaciones graves es vacunar a los niños todos los años contra la influenza estacional. Se recomienda la vacuna contra la influenza a todos los niños de 6 meses en adelante. Hacer elecciones saludables en el hogar y la escuela puede ayudar a prevenir la influenza y evitar contagiar a otras personas.

Baby Dental CareTop of Page

 
Yes, your child's baby teeth will fall out, but that doesn't mean they're less important. These little chompers help kids chew food, speak clearly, and hold space so permanent teeth can grow in straight.

Unfortunately, tooth decay is one of the most common childhood health problems for kids in the United States. Tooth decay is not only painful, it can also lead to other problems, such as ear and sinus infections, difficulty speaking, and a lack of concentration. Kids with dental problems are also more likely to miss school and fall
behind in class. 

The good news is that you can help prevent cavities by encouraging your child to develop good dental habits.
