E-cigarettes could help you quit smoking

E-cigarettes could help you quit smoking

While many advocates of e-cigarettes claim that vaping can be used as a method to curtail smoking habits, the research actually found that using e-cigarettes was likely to increase the amount of tobacco consumption in teenagers who already smoked cigarettes.

Researchers wrote: 'These data indicate that e-cigs should not be considered safe and that they induce significant deleterious effects'. The Tamil Nadu Tobacco Control Coalition had imposed regulations on e-cigarettes previous year, but no ban was imposed on e-cigarettes and hookah bars that provide them easily. He said: 'The findings suggest that among the teenagers who had never smoked, the use of e-cigarettes was a strong predictor that within 12 months they would have tried a conventional cigarette.

Researchers report that more than one-third of the students ages 13 to 14 said they had used e-cigarettes at baseline and 22.6% said they had smoked traditional cigarettes.

She noted that the finding that increases in cigarette prices were associated with quitting smoking in the older population suggests that cigarette taxes may be a particularly effective lever for behaviour change. This comes at a time when a year ago, a major report by the Royal College of Physicians had concluded that e-cigarettes are much less harmful to health and smokers should be encouraged to use them.

Researchers at Columbia University and Rutgers University looked at two years of data from an annual, nationwide household survey and homed in on two groups of people: current smokers and former smokers who quit during or before 2010, the year e-cigarettes were introduced.

British researchers surveyed about 28-hundred adolescents who had never smokes but some had tried e-cigarettes.

This collector's edition will cost $89.99 and will include a slew of content like an art book, bar glasses and more. Sega has announced an official release date for the upcoming Yakuza 6: The Song of Life .

Experts say it might be that e-cigarettes normalize smoking or leads to a nicotine addiction.

U.S. studies have warned teenagers who use the gadgets are more likely to "graduate" to tobacco later.

Despite attempts to account for a broad range of potential influences, there may be other as yet unexplored factors that are responsible, they add. They called for further work to investigate the impact of these devices on smoking risk among young people.

Linda Bauld, a professor of health policy at the University of Stirling, said the study did not provide evidence that using e-cigarettes causes young people to become smokers. "It is important to enforce these measures effectively and remain vigilant by closely monitoring e-cigarette use in minors".

When it comes to the benefits and risks of e-cigarettes, scientists and smokers alike can't seem to agree on much.
