Teens may prefer electronic cigarettes to regular cigarettes, but the same is not in the case of their parents. A latest Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) study has found that 12.6% of the US adults have tried an e-cigarette at least once, and about 3.7% are using them regularly.
The numbers are quite less than the 15.2% of the US adults, who smoke traditional cigarettes. They are also below the 13.4% of high school students who presently use e-cigarettes.
The new figures are based on data from the 2014 National Health Interview Survey. They have offered that first comprehensive look at electronic cigarettes popularity among US adults. Electronic cigarettes, the battery-powered devices, vaporize a flavored nicotine solution that an individual can inhale like a tobacco cigarette.
Public health experts are worried after seeing the use if e-cigarettes. They are concerned that the largely unregulated devices will hook teens on nicotine, and would increase their chances of becoming tobacco smokers. However, there are a number of adults who already smoke and have now shifted to e-cigarettes to wean themselves off normal cigarettes. There are many studies that support the idea of using e-cigarettes as a smoking ending device.
The new CDC data has revealed that among adults, e-cigarettes are quite popular in current smokers and recent former smokers as compared to among nonsmokers and people who haven’t smoked in years.
