The topic of sex education has recently become increasingly important around the world. Many high schools have decided to cut sex ed programs in the fear that they promote sexual activity (Serenko), but this is a misconception. There are no studies showing that teaching young adults about reproductive health encourages sexual activity. Sex ed classes have been rightly designed to inform kids about making advised choices regarding sexual activity, or even life choices in general (Serenko).

The Juul, a type of e-cigarette, has become incredibly popular among teens or young adults. The common misconception about the Juul is that it is safer than smoking. While it does not contain the same chemicals as a cigarette, it does contain nicotine, an extremely addictive substance.
