    FOX's Lilian Woo reports:

    The Food and Drug Administration stepping up efforts to stamp out a electronic cigarette use among young people, announcing plans to include messaging on its dangers when it expands its education campaign: 'The Real Cost' this fall.

    E-cigarettes and other electronic nicotine delivery systems are the most commonly used tobacco product among youth, according to the FDA, which says more than two million middle-and high-school students in the country used e-cigarettes and other vaping devices in 2016 and that half of all middle and high school students who used a tobacco product of some sort used two or more of them.
