Study: E-cigarettes can encourage youth to smoke
from Counsel and Heal
Several large cities throughout the U.S. have decided to ban the use of electronic cigarettes in public areas, such as restaurants. Even though studies have not determined if these products are safe to use, some of the state officials have expressed concerns over effects of smoking e-cigarettes, called "vaping" on young children. Now, in a new study, researchers reported that middle and high school children who vape are also more likely to start smoking real cigarettes and less likely to quit.
