This week: e-cigarettes, drug dependence during pregnancy and more

Apr 4, 2014

Health authorities are very aware of the increasing popularity of electronic cigarettes. Some think these tobacco products lure teens and young adults to the habit of smoking not only e-cigarettes but traditional cigarettes as well.

The number of high school students using e-cigarettes has doubled from 2011 to 2012. Dr. Leslie Kohman, the medical director of the Upstate Cancer Center, explains some dangers of these devices.

We'll also hear from registered dietitian Juliann Mellen this week. Mellen will cover healthy eating during a very important time in a woman's life -- pregnancy.

Be with us for these stories Sunday night at 9 p.m., as well as an update on reducing the number of babies born to drug-dependent moms.
