A new study shows that teenagers from the United States are less interested in smoking cigarettes. However, e-cigarettes are becoming more popular every year. According to the report, fewer students tried smoking cigarettes between 2012 and 2014. This could be great news, especially after the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention did their best to convince teens not to smoke.
Most teens begin to smoke because they are curious or because they to look cool in front of their friends. Unfortunately, there is nothing cool in smoking cigarettes. Even though teens could feel good at first, in the future they could have a lot of health problems because of their habit. Do not forget the lung cancer is one of the main causes of death in the United States.
What is really interesting is that teens are more interested in e-cigarettes and smokeless tobacco. According to a study made by the CDC, 11 percent of students smoked a cigarette in the last 30 days, while 23 of them used electronic products. It seems that the technology is developing in all areas and teens are more interested in those products that have different flavours and can be used no matter where they are.
However, health officials are advising teens to pay more attention. Smoking is harmful no matter if you use a cigarette or an electronic gadget. If it has nicotine, it is dangerous for your body. However, the goo news is that there are fewer students who tried smoking cigarrete. There were a lot of them who did not tried nicotine and they are not interested in the future.
There could be a lot of students who tries e-cigarretes because they are curious about these products. When something new is on the market, most people want to try it and find out what it is about. Teenagers always know about the latest gadgets. This could be the main reason why so many of them are using e-cigarretes.
Even though the study shows that teens seem less interested in smoking, there a lot of people who suffer from lung cancer every year. Smoking is able to damage our health and make us more vulnerable to diseases. We are expecting more laws against this habit in the future because authorities seem to focus on this problem.
