#NYecigaretteban #CleanIndoorAirAct #Obamacare2018 #TeenageSelfHarm The state Health Department announced Wednesday that a law signed by Gov. Cuomo in October placing new restrictions on the indoor use of e-cigarettes is now in effect. The measure, adopted by the Legislature in June, extends the provisions of New York's Clean Indoor Air Act to include e-cigarettes, effectively banning their use in most restaurants, bars and workplaces. Advocates for the law argued smoke from e-cigarettes poses health risks akin to those of regular cigarettes. A U.S. government agency reported on Wednesday that the pace slowed in the third week of enrollment for 2018 Obamacare individual insurance as nearly 800,000 people signed up through the federal government website, down about 75,000 people from the previous week. According to a new study from the Centers for Disease Control, self-harm attempts by teen girls have tripled since 2009. The study looked at 43,138 first-time, non-fatal emergency room visits for self-harm cases (self-inflicted hard from overdose/poisoning, cutting and blunt objects) in young people age 10 to 24 from 2001 to 2015.
