E-cigarette attracts youth towards tobacco consumption

Though e-cigarettes are known as a medium to get rid of tobacco, the University of California- San Francisco has something different to state. It suggests that these electronics cigarettes are attracting more number of youths towards the actual use of tobacco in the later phase of their life. The whole research has been published in Pediatrics.

A team of scientists from the University Of California in the United States of America tried to arrive at the real truth and for the same; they conducted a research upon the same. Their study concentrated the phase between the years 2009 to 2014. However, they didn’t notice any decline in the use of tobacco due to e-cigarettes, instead, it has increased, told lead author Lauren Dutra.

She also claimed that the recent degradation in the smoking cigarettes is due to the control program over tobacco consumption, not due to the implementation of e-cigarettes. The researching team also found out that kids who are at very less risk of starting nicotine with cigarettes were using e-cigarettes.

The research also carried out behavioural inspection among the e-cigarette smokers. The study showed smokers to poses some different characteristics than the non-smokers. Those who smokes like to mingle with those who either smoke or get dressed which displays the logo of any tobacco product. However, this kind of behaviour is little less when it comes to the case of e-cigarette smokers.

Another research was conducted in California last year by the researchers at the University of Southern California. The test was to judge the side effects that smokers are developing in their health due to e-cigarettes and it resulted that as compared to conventional tobacco smokers, e-smokers are showing minimal symptoms of health hazard.

The data for this research are collected from around 140,000 middle and high school students who have pledged their active support in CDC’s National Youth Tobacco survey that took place in between 2004 to 2014.
