Healthcast : A Study on Teenagers & Tobacco Use

Macao puts new tobacco control law into effect

A new study adds to a growing body of evidence linking the use of electronic cigarettes and other non-cigarette tobacco products to future use of conventional cigarettes in teens. Data were included for 10,384 participants (aged 12 to 17 years at baseline) from waves 1 (Sept. 12, 2013, to December 14, 2014) and 2 (Oct. 23, 2014, to October 30, 2015) of the Population Assessment of Tobacco and Health study.

Teens who had tried more than one type of tobacco product at baseline had an adjusted odds ratio of 3.81 (95% CI 2.22-6.54) for past 30-day cigarette smoking at follow-up than did baseline never-users of tobacco products.

The research also showed that teens who used more than one tobacco product were more likely to move on to traditional cigarettes.

"Cigarette "ever" use is a meaningful outcome given that nicotine dependence can manifest in adolescents soon after their first puff, but other smoking milestones, such as daily smoking, can take years to develop", the report said. Previous studies have demonstrated associations of use of individual products such as e-cigarettes, smokeless tobacco, and hookahs with future cigarette smoking.

The success rate for people who used e-cigarettes was 40 percent lower than the rate for people who did not use the products, the study found.

"95 percent of those people will be smoking again in one week from the day they try to stop".

Consequently, the gains made in public health as cigarette smoking has declined in recent years may be at risk if the use of novel tobacco products continues to rise, according to the authors of the study, published Tuesday in the journal JAMA Pediatrics.

The researchers asked 10,384 teens between 12 and 17-years-old if they'd ever used e-cigarettes, hookah, dissolvable tobacco and other similar products. Even though the odds of smoking were higher among youth who had tried other products, the number of smokers contributed by each of these groups was minuscule. That's important because cigarette smoking rates have gone down in teens, which could be seen as a win by health advocates. "Regulation of these non-cigarette products should reflect the fact that all of them are associated with greater risk of youth smoking", he said.

Funding for this research was provided by the U.S. National Cancer Institute and FDA Center for Tobacco Products, the National Institute on Drug Abuse, and the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences.

Last June, the University of Texas System became the first entirely tobacco-free university system in the state, officials said, and the largest single employer prohibiting tobacco use statewide.
