Healthcast : A Study on Teenagers & Tobacco Use
"Measures that reduce the appeal of these products to adolescents, like banning flavors, increasing the minimum purchase age to 21, and taxation, would help keep youth from starting to use tobacco in any form", he said to CBS News. Data were included for 10,384 participants (aged 12 to 17 years at baseline) from waves 1 (Sept. 12, 2013, to December 14, 2014) and 2 (Oct. 23, 2014, to October 30, 2015) of the Population Assessment of Tobacco and Health study.
"The estimated health risks of non-cigarette tobacco products should include the additional health consequences of future cigarette use", study authorswrote.
Oklahoma is spending more to combat tobacco use than most states - but it still isn't close to what experts think is needed. When first interviewed at ages 12-17, roughly half of the group reported that they had used e-cigs, hookah, snuff, or other non-cigarette tobacco products, but never cigarettes; the rest said they had always been completely tobacco-free.
People who have a tendency to experiment with tobacco products in general, are also more likely to also experiment with cigarettes.
Teenagers who use e-cigarette tobacco products are twice as likely to start smoking conventional cigarettes, compared to those who have never used such a device, a new study shows. Adolescents who used multiple tobacco products were even more likely to start smoking conventional cigarettes.
The report, published Tuesday in JAMA Pediatrics, comes as e-cigarettes are becoming increasingly popular among adolescents. They found non-users had a 26-percent higher chance of trying a tobacco product after watching online videos or using social networking sites to view tobacco products.
Study Limitations: The study accounted for known risk factors of youth smoking but other unknown factors may have influenced study results.
He added that the clear potential of e-cigarettes and other emerging non-combustible tobacco products to addict teens to nicotine has to be part of the regulatory debate, noting that once teens are addicted, smoking cigarettes may appeal to them as a cheaper, more convenient and more effective method for delivering nicotine.
Smoking cessation researcher Scott McIntosh, PhD, of University of Rochester Medical Center, New York, told MedPage Today that the data examining the usefulness of e-cigarettes for smoking cessation are mixed.
Funding for this research was provided by the U.S. National Cancer Institute and FDA Center for Tobacco Products, the National Institute on Drug Abuse, and the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences.
"We found that the association with future smoking was of approximately the same strength regardless of what type of product adolescents had tried initially", Dr. Chaffee said in an email to The Washington Times.
