Straight from the world wide news desk:
For every 20 people you walk past today, at least one will possess vaping products. Of those individuals, one in three vape daily and a majority of smokers double-down and vape.
That’s not all.
According to a recent vaping study published in the Annals of Internal Medicine journal, half of the vaping community is 35 years old or younger and are prone to be risk-takers.
“Electronic cigarette use is also closely associated with other high-risk behaviors,” Dr. Michael Blaha, a senior study author, told Reuters. “The most common pattern of use in the U.S. is dual use, i.e. current use of both traditional cigarettes and electronic cigarettes.”
Based in Baltimore, Blaha serves as the director of clinical research for the Johns Hopkins Ciccarone Center for the Prevention of Heart Disease.
Of the study’s participants, only 1.4 percent claimed to have never smoked traditional cigarettes but experienced vaping. Meanwhile, 14.4 percent of current smokers and 7.6 percent of ex-smokers like to vape, the study stated.
Here’s more breaking news, in case you missed it.
Apparently, vaping helps traditional cigarette smokers quit.
The recent study backs up research released last year by the American Heart Association (AHA).
Director, Tobacco Research and Treatment Center, Massachusetts General Hospital Dr. Nancy Rigotti told Reuters: “Current smokers and recent quitters are the groups in which e-cig use is highest.”
Another study advised United Kingdom officials to distribute e-cigarettes as a way to help more smokers quit, according to Reuters.
The UK research indicated that if e-cigarettes were distributed at no cost by social service organizations for a brief time period will ultimately aid individuals in their attempts to discover alternatives to combustible cigarettes.
That’s news for you.
