Youth Smoking Rate Stops Dropping after Decades of Declines

Youth Smoking Rate Stops Dropping after Decades of Declines

"It's putting a new generation at risk for nicotine addiction", Redfield said. The U.S. Surgeon General also warned that their use is skyrocketing among minors, with one in five high school students reporting past year that they used e-cigarettes at least once in the last month.

About 4.9 million middle and high school students were current users of a tobacco product in 2018, up from 3.6 million in 2017, according to results from the annual National Youth Tobacco Survey. "If the current trend continues, tobacco use will cause more than eight million deaths annually by 2030 around the world".

The regulation of e-cigarettes falls to Health Canada, which announced last week it was looking at new measures of restricting ads and limiting their visibility to youth.

For adult smokers, e-cigarettes are supposed to be a safer alternative, but only if a smoker switches completely. "Youth use of any tobacco product, including e-cigarettes, is unsafe", he adds.

Further, among current tobacco product users, almost 2 in 5 high school students and 1 in 3 middle school students reportedly use more than one tobacco products.

The nicotine in e-cigarettes also pose other health hazards, said Dr. Anne Schuchat, the CDC's principal deputy director.

"The kids using e-cigarettes are children who rejected conventional cigarettes, but don't see the same stigma associated with the use of e-cigarettes", Gottlieb said in a statement.

According to the new CDC data, about 8 percent of high schoolers said they had recently smoked cigarettes in 2018, and about 2 percent of middle schoolers did. Both singled out the huge growth in sales of the e-cigarette brand Juul - introduced to the market in 2015 - as a major contributor to rise in youth e-cigarette use. "We know very little about the health effects of these new devices, so we designed this research to compare them with cigarette smoking and vaping", added Sharma.

"JUUL also has a high nicotine content, among the highest of any e-cigarette on the USA market", King continued.

Battery-powered e-cigarettes heat a nicotine liquid that users inhale, and have been gaining popularity in the United States and overseas. Almost all tobacco product use begins during youth and young adulthood, according to the report, and the new numbers signify a reversal in recent progress to reduce overall tobacco product use among adolescents.

You must already be at least 21 years old to purchase tobacco products in the Garden State, which also prohibits smoking in public places, including (as of last month) parks and beaches. Men also used tobacco products more frequently than women.

The CDC said the ongoing rise in vaping among teens threatens to undo past progress in reducing rates of tobacco use among minors. The figure dropped to 21.7% of Hispanics and was down to 18.4% of non-Hispanic other race.
