Fewer American Adults Are Smoking Than Ever Before

As of Monday, the companies must note the potentially deadly consequences of smoking, as well as how tobacco companies have designed cigarettes to enhance the delivery of nicotine, making them more addictive. But just how safe are these trendy e-cigs?

Fewer U.S. adults are smoking cigarettes, according to new government data.

There hadn't been much change the previous two years, but it's been clear there's been a general decline and the new figures show it's continuing, said K. Michael Cummings of the tobacco research program at Medical University of SC.

'Everything is pointed in the right direction, ' including falling cigarette sales and other indicators, Cummings said.

In the early 1960s, roughly 42 percent of United States adults smoked.

This means the figure will likely jump to eight million in little more than a decade.

Tobacco companies also must disclose the lack of significant health benefits of smoking low tar and light cigarettes and note the adverse effects to exposure of secondhand smoke.

Teens are also shunning cigarettes.

In the early 1960s, roughly 42 percent of US adults smoked. The survey shows data from 2017 to 2006, when the adult smoking rate was almost 21 percent. It was common almost everywhere - in office buildings, restaurants, airplanes and even hospitals. In 1965, 42 percent of American adults smoked cigarettes, according to CDC data.

Approximately 14% of American adults said they were smokers previous year, according to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS).

Now, federal officials are grappling with a new challenge - how to regulate e-cigarettes. For both sexes, smoking is most common among adults between the ages of 45 and 64.
