Study: Nearly Half Of Teenagers Who Use Nicotine Products Vape


(WTNH) — A warning to all of you moms and dads with teenagers.

A new study adds to concerns that electronic cigarettes provide teens a ‘convenient’ way to get nicotine, whether they are interested in smoking actual cigarettes or not.

Researchers say, more than half of the high schoolers who currently use products containing nicotine do not smoke. They actually vape using electronic cigarettes.

Researchers suggest that many of today’s teens who vape might have otherwise stayed away from nicotine.

The study also says findings last month found vaping is a possible ‘gateway’ to smoking.
