Vaping Seems to Lead to Smoking

Vaping increases the risk of teens later becoming smokers by four-fold.

Researchers following a group of high school students found using e-cigarettes significantly predicts future cigarette or other smokable tobacco product use. E-cigarette users were 4.27 times (P>0.001) more likely to use "combustible tobacco products" (cigarettes, tobacco hookah, and cigars) and 2.65 times (P>0.001) more likely to become cigarette smokers than those never using e-cigarettes. Vaping has tripled in U.S. middle and high school students in the last year!

PositiveTip: Inhaling an addictive substance is not good for anyone. Support swift regulation of these dangerous products.
