E-cigarettes and vaping are still risky

More Evidence That E-Cig Use Leads to Smoking

More Evidence That E-Cig Use Leads to Smoking

"Comparing cigarettes to e-cigarettes can give us a false sense of what dangers exist because it misses the gap in understanding how people use them and how they can make people dependent", said lead author Matthew Olonoff, doctoral student at Northwestern University in Illinois, US.

"The amount of nicotine in cigarette" e-cigarettes can vary widely, which doesn't provide enough consistency of the device and smokers' behaviour.

In September, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration said teen use of e-cigarettes has reached "epidemic" levels and called on makers of the most popular e-cigarettes to keep their products away from youngsters.

"The commentary distils articles and published studies that compare cigarette" e-cigarettes to cigarettes and supports the importance of investigating cigarette" e-cigarettes as a unique nicotine delivery system.

"This study suggests that not only are teens who vape more likely to start smoking; they are also more likely to use both e-cigarettes and cigarettes more frequently as they get older".

NHS figures show more than a third of 15-year-olds have tried an e-cigarette.

The results confirm the claims of other experts that e-cigarettes may act as a "catalyst", getting children hooked on nicotine and making smoking socially acceptable so they later turn to tobacco.

"Teens could potentially be getting addicted to something risky and harmful to their health", Olonoff said.

"For young people, using these products may actually lead to more harm in the long run", Dunbar said. E-cigarette use was also significantly associated with subsequent marijuana use in the study.

The relative ease with which teens can use e-cigarettes - such as Juul selling a USB drive-like e-cigarette - might be enticing youths to think the devices are safe, Olonoff said.

"We've seen a number of studies recently suggesting that e-cigarette use in teens increases the likelihood that they will smoke cigarettes", Dunbar told MedPage Today.

We aren't telling you that you shouldn't use e-cigs or vape, but we do encourage you to do your own research about the health risks of vaping. "With respect to the role of shared risk factors, ARCL models indicated that trajectories of both electronic cigarette use may be influenced by other substances or mental health problems - suggesting that there are "other reasons" why youth are increasing their electronic cigarette or cigarette use over time".
