A new research has indicated that young people suing e-cigarettes are much more likely to take up smoking compared to those who do not use e-cigarettes.
A study including nearly 700 teenagers in the United States showed that out of 16 who tried e-cigarettes, about 11 went on to smoke compared with only 18 per cent of those who did not try e-cigarettes. Most of the subjects had shown aversion to smoking at the beginning of the study. The researchers from the University of Pittsburgh have found that se who tried e-cigarettes became addicted to nicotine and also became used to the action of smoking.
Dr Brian Primack, study lead author, said: “Especially considering the rapid increase in e-cigarette use among youth, these findings support regulations to limit sales and decrease the appeal of e-cigarettes to adolescents and young adults.”
Supporters of electronic cigarettes have said that they are useful in helping people quit the nasty habit. However,health officials say there is no concrete evidence to prove that and warned that such devices also known as vape pens and e-hookahs may lead people into the habit of smoking.
