ONCE upon a time the bad kids at school would be busted for smok­ing cig­a­rettes in the toi­let block, but how things have changed; now they’re get­ting in trou­ble for va­p­ing...in­side the toi­let block.

A high school in North Van­cou­ver has found the num­ber of kids sneak­ing off to vape so preva­lent that they have been forced to lock the doors to wash­rooms dur­ing class time.

A spokesper­son for the North Van­cou­ver School Dis­trict said the school made the de­ci­sion be­cause too many kids va­p­ing at once was: “a health and safety con­cern and as a school we need to stop it”.

Lets hope the kids learn their les­son and kick the habit, is there such a thing as a vape patch? AS THE old health adage goes, you are what you eat, but are we also how we smell? Well ac­cord­ing to Dr Sam Hay in his ar­ti­cle for kidspot.com.au the odour a per­son omits can say a lot about their phys­i­cal health.

For ex­am­ple, if some­one’s breath smells “fruity”, then it could be a sign they have di­a­betes and might need a check-up.

Also, any­body keep­ing them­selves hy­drated shouldn’t ex­pe­ri­ence smelly pee, how­ever Dr May sug­gests that any­one find­ing their urine “a bit pongy” should step up their wa­ter in­take as it can re­sult from de­hy­dra­tion cre­at­ing con­cen­trated pee.
