According to Singapore’s Union Newspaper on the 27th, the World Health Organization recommended that governments should take measures to prohibit people from selling vapes to young people. The World Health Organization also recommends that people should be banned from vaping in public buildings until research shows that the smoke from e-cigarettes is harmless to the people around them.
Earlier, the US health authorities said that between 2011 and 2013, the number of teenagers trying to use e-cigarettes in the United States has doubled, and many people worry this will lead to a new generation of “addicts”.
According to the US Center for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 250,000 young people who have never smoked cigarettes used vapes in 2013. According to the Journal of Nicotine and Tobacco Research, this is twice the number of young people using e-cigarettes in 2011.
A survey of junior high school and high school students in the US Youth Tobacco Survey showed that more than 79,000 teenagers tried the e-cigarettes in 2011, and the number was more than 263,000 in 2013.
Bonner, deputy director of the US Center for Disease Control and Prevention, said: “The trend of more teenagers vaping is a warning to parents and health care workers.” She said: “especially for young people who have used e-cigarettes. For them, the odds of smoking traditional cigarettes are twice that of teenagers who haven’t tried the vapes.”
The study found that 44% of non-smoking teenagers who have tried e-cigarettes said they plan to try the conventional cigarettes in the second year. However, in the non-try grope of young who have never tried e-cigarettes, only 22% said they would try traditional cigarettes.
The vape is a device shaped like a conventional cigarette, which evaporates a solution containing a small amount of nicotine into an aerosol, which is inhaled by a vaper, like a conventional cigarette, but no smoke came out.
These e-cigarette devices are currently unregulated in the US market and allowed be sold to teenagers. Experts point out that fruit and candy-flavored e-liquid of vapes are more harmful to minors.
