Caution – E – cigarettes are attracting young people to smoke

Electronic cigarettes or popularly known as e-cigarettes are luring a new population of adolescents who might not otherwise have smoked tobacco products, a recent study revealed.

“E-cigarettes are encouraging — not discouraging — youth to smoke and to consume nicotine and are expanding the tobacco market,” said Stanton A. Glantz, Professor at University of California – San Francisco.

Several previous studies have reported that adolescents who start with e-cigarettes are more likely to subsequently smoke traditional cigarettes.

According to researchers, they did not find any evidence that e-cigarettes have caused youth smoking to decline.
