The talk you should have with your teen about e-cigarettes

Macao puts new tobacco control law into effect

Around three million adults in Britain have used e-cigarettes in the decade or so that they have been on the market.

Teens who use e-cigarettes, hookah, chewing tobacco and other cigarette alternatives are nearly twice as likely to eventually smoke cigarettes than teens who never use those alternatives. They studied ever, former, and past 30-day use of noncigarette tobacco products in 4 categories: e-cigarettes, hookah, noncigarette combustible tobacco (bidis, cigarillos, filtered cigars, kreteks, pipes, and traditional cigars), and smokeless tobacco at baseline.

"The elevated risk of cigarette use uptake in young populations who use e-cigarettes is strong and consistent, and this risk is amplified by the presence or amount of nicotine in e-cigarettes", Leventhal, who wasn't involved in the study, said by email.

Study Rundown: Use of noncigarette tobacco products by youths has increased recently, and there is concern that this may lead to increase in cigarette smoking. "Non-cigarette tobacco use is increasing and could stimulate subsequent conventional cigarette smoking in youths".

The success rate for people who used e-cigarettes was 40 percent lower than the rate for people who did not use the products, the study found. Mean age was 14.3; about half were female and half were white.

"95 percent of those people will be smoking again in one week from the day they try to stop".

However, YouTube has also faced backlash for removing certain content, including its removal of videos from war-torn Syria. After saying he's "ashamed of myself" and "disappointed in myself", he went on to "promise to be better".

Cigarette ever use at follow-up ranged from 18.8% to 19.2% for youths who, at wave 1, had used e-cigarettes, hookah, non-cigarette combustible tobacco, or smokeless tobacco at baseline.

Teenagers who use electronic cigarettes are almost twice as likely to go on to smoke tobacco, a major study shows.

A study in Pediatrics suggested teenagers are more likely to start smoking after viewing tobacco marketing online. Though this study did not determine how noncigarette tobacco products increase cigarette use, whether by nicotine dependence, changing perception of cigarettes, social mediators, or other factors, it sheds light on the need for policy changes to limit use of noncigarette tobacco products and prevent health risks associated with it.

The Food and Drug Administration banned sales of e-cigarettes to teens back in 2016. "Even if youths do not progress to smoking cigarettes, any tobacco use is harmful". That's important because cigarette smoking rates have gone down in teens, which could be seen as a win by health advocates.

"We should think about the overall public health burden, and their potential to convert non-cigarette users to cigarette users, when we are making choices about the regulation of these product", Watkins said.

"I'm perhaps surprised about how similar the relationships were for each product across the board", Watkins said.
