Kids as young as 11 are vaping. A pediatrician says the habit could permanently stunt their brain development.
Nicotine in some vape devices can make the skill-based area of a child's brain develop more slowly than normal."This is extremely complicated and difficult. It's fatal or potentially fatal with half of the cases requiring intensive care," CDC Principal Deputy Director Anne Schuchat told a House Appropriations subcommittee on Wednesday.
Busy Philipps is proving that it's never too late to get passionate about a new sport. The actress and comedian took to Instagram over the weekend to share a video of herself playing tennis—a sport she recently picked up after feeling discouraged about it in the past, she wrote in the caption of her post.© Jordin Althaus/E! Entertainment/NBCU Photo Bank via Getty Images She recently shared a video of herself playing tennis while her daughter, Cricket cheered her on behind the camera.
"Whenever anyone asks if I played sports in high school, my joke is always that I did plays and drugs instead, which is less of a joke and more just totally one hundred percent true," Philipps wrote alongside the video.

Philipps shared that she'd actually never played a sport past fifth-grade softball, which also happened to be the only sport she'd ever tried in her childhood. But tennis is something that's sparked her interest for a while, she wrote in her post. (Did you know that Busy Philipps found her love of exercise after being asked to lose weight for a part?)
"I've always wanted to play tennis but I let a dumb thing someone said to me five years ago discourage me from taking lessons," Philipps shared on Instagram. "But in April, my friend Sarah invited me to join her lesson and I became obsessed. And anyway! Tennis is the greatest."
Natty Is Holding A Costume Contest For People Who Dress As #Adulting Fears Like Bad Credit Scores
Who knew real life was so scary?Natty's Halloween Scaries contest seems to be centered around the fact that many of us who spent college drinking Natty through a funnel are now dealing with the fact that life sort of blows, and that there's actually a lot of normal stuff to be scared of, like student loan debt, acid reflux, and living with your parents forever.
Philipps' video shows her doing about a minute of drills while her daughter Cricket cheers her on behind the camera. "Go, go, go! Move move move!" Cricket is heard saying as Philipps practices her forehand and backhand. "Some of my shots suck and some are kinda great but the BEST is [Cricket's] little commentary at the end of the video," the 40-year-old mom wrote alongside the video. "And also that I finally play a sport!!!" (Here's how Busy Philipps is teaching her daughters body confidence.)

Picking up a new sport as an adult might seem intimidating. But research shows it can really help you win at life: For instance, a 2013 survey of over 800 male and female senior managers and executives found that the vast majority of high-level female execs (including CEOs) have participated in a competitive sport at some point in their lives. What's more, researchers from Deakin University in Australia say that playing sports can help you view winning and losing (both in the heat of a game and throughout life in general) from a healthier perspective, improving your resilience and self-awareness in the process.

These side dishes deserve main event status.
Participating in a sport can help to elevate other aspects of your life, too. Retired professional golfer, Annika Sörenstam told us that playing sports can not only help you gain mental toughness, but it can also challenge you to master new skills and focus on the future—all things that come in handy in the workplace and everyday life.
BTW, you don't have to start young to excel in a new sport (or reap the long-term benefits that come with it). Numerous pro athletes found their sport of choice much later in life. Take world champion mountain biker, Rebecca Rusch for example. "I'm living proof that it's never too late to learn a new sport and get really good at it," Rusch, who admitted she was terrified of mountain biking at the start of her career, previously told Shape. "Everyone should expand their sporting horizons." (Here's why you should try a new adventure sport even if it scares you.)
If you're feeling inspired, Rusch recommends taking the time to educate yourself about the sport you want to try. "Solicit expert advice via a coach, a local club, or a friend who's already involved in the sport," she told us. "Just a few sessions with an expert will save hours of fumbling and learning the lessons yourself the hard way."
U.S. vaping illnesses rise to 1,888 with pace picking up again
An Illinois report brings the toll to 38 deaths in 24 states. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said 1,888 confirmed and probable cases have been reported in 49 states. An Illinois report brings the toll to 38 deaths in 24 states.
As for Philipps, she seems to already be heeding that advice: She's been playing tennis consistently since she started taking lessons with a coach last April, she wrote in her Instagram post. Not only is she slaying backhands left and right, but she's also been making sure to seize every opportunity to wear some seriously cute tennis outfits (naturally).
Slideshow: Celebrities who aren't afraid to lift heavy (Shape)
Chelsea Handler is crushing barbell hip thrusts with some serious weights in this pic. Good news: We've got the deets on how to perform the super-effective move for stronger, lifted glutes. And if you need more inspo from the comedian, just check her out in this Insta video of her killing her morning workout by pushing 400 pounds. #Goals.
Demi Lovato shared this weighted squat video on Snapchat and had us immediately adding more weight to our squats. Yes, it helps build strong and sexy glutes, but research shows adding in a few sets of weighted squats a few days a week helps strengthen your bones too. (Looking to add some variety to this butt-sculpting move? Check out our 30-Day Squat Challenge.)
Ashley Graham takes this rear-foot elevated split squat (AKA a Bulgarian split squat) up a notch with weights for some serious butt and leg sculpting. (There's more where that came from: See 12 Times Ashley Graham Showed Us What Fitspo Was Really About.)

"Pushed 527lb today, thats basically 3 baby elephants," Nina captioned this video of her pushing a sled with weights AND a fully grown man. We are bowing down.
Ellie Goulding is all about strong over skinny and, as evidenced from her Instagram, always up for a new challenge, whether it's adding weights to her sit-ups to help sculpt her killer six-pack, or doing a weighted wall sit to target her quads, hamstrings, and glutes. (We aren't sure if that's 50 pounds or kilograms, but either way, damn!)
Kate Upton's trainer posted this video of the model as she supersets heavy landmine reverse lunges (and shows off some dance moves!). Up next: Check out the Celebrities Who Aren't Afraid to Break a Sweat.
When it comes to fitness, Brie Larson is nothing short of a beast. Over the past year, the actress has gotten insanely strong prepping for her role as Captain Marvel. We're talking upside-down indoor rock climbing, pull-ups with steel chains, and insane abs workouts that will have you feeling sore just watching. She's been been wowing us with her ability to hip thrust 275-pound and 400-pound weights, so clearly this girl isn't afraid to lift heavy. (Feeling inspired? Here's how to perform a barbell hip thrust—and why you should.)

Emma Stone is known for her pretty svelte figure but the actress gained 15 pounds of muscle for her role in Battle of the Sexes, all thanks to some serious heavy lifting. While she didn't love upping the weights at first, she got to the point where she was like, "Can we do more? How strong can we get?" her trainer Jaso Walsh previously told us. (Related: Emma Stone Opened Up About Her Biggest "Flaw" and So Many Women Will Relate)
Even though she's far past training for BOTS, Stone continues to lift heavy and loves it. "She likes it now, it feels good," Walsh told us. "Now she equates the strength training with being healthy and pain-free and living a better quality of life."
Alison Brie didn't mess around when it came to prepping for season two of her hit show GLOW. The actress previously mastered all the strength training basics with her trainer Jason Walsh while prepping for season one so training for season two was all about upping the ante. That included things like 200-pound deadlifts, heavy hip thrusts, front squats, weighted bear crawl sled drags and weighted pull-ups, Walsh previously told us. "We would start with a 10-pound weight vest and work up to a 20-pound weight vest, then a kettlebell around the waist," he said.
While her hard work in the gym has definitely scored her the physique of a female wrestler, she's also gained some body confidence along the way. "She's really proud of where she's at, very comfortable and confident-more so than ever before," Walsh told us. "It comes from being proud of what she's been able to accomplish and what's in the mirror."
Expert: This Is The #1 Balance Transfer Card
TV personality Jeannie Mai made headlines last year after opening up about her 17-pound weight gain. After over a decade of focusing on being "skinny" and being a self-proclaimed cardio bunny, Mai fell in love with lifting as it helped her appreciate her body in new ways. "You just feel so victorious after lifting heavy," she previously told us. "There's something so gratifying about testing your strength and feeling surprised by it. It makes you realize that there's no limit to what your body can do if you put your mind to it."
