During the past year, there was a constant spotlight in news coverage during the year due to increasing health concerns, vaping being a safer alternative to smoking. Depending on these concerns, the New England Journal of Medicine Thursday published study results found that nicotine evaporation was more than doubled among teenagers between 2017 and 2019.
One in four of 12th grade graduated staff from the Universities of Michigan and Minnesota surveyed in 2019 was vicid nicotine in the previous month. About one in five of the ten graders and one in 11 of their graders used the previous e-cigarettes in the previous 30 days. The staff surveyed 42,531 students in the 8th, 10th and 12th grade in 2019.
In comparison, in 2017, about 11% of 12th graders, 8% of the 10th graders and 3.5% of graders from the 8th after the decline in the previous 30 days, showed the research.
"New efforts are needed to protect youngsters from using nicotine during adolescence, when the developing brain is very susceptible to permanent changes from nicotine use and almost all nicot addiction is established," the researchers said in the study.
The Food and Drug Administration announced a criminal search during Thursday as theto 530. So far, eight died. Earlier this month, the FDA brought an "epidemic" to the use of e-cigarette cigarettes.
