New Study on Teen E-Cigarette Use and Parental Influence
Teenagers with smoking parents have a higher likelihood of trying e-cigarettes, according to a recent study.

A recent study presented at the International Congress of the European Respiratory Society in Spain sheds light on the trend of teenage e-cigarette use. According to the research, adolescents with parents who smoke are 55% more likely to try e-cigarettes.

A team from the Tobacco Free Research Institute (TFRI) of Ireland carried out a crucial study, which also highlighted the growth in the number of young people using VAPE to smoke in the country.

For instance, in Brazil, many young people continue to use e-cigarettes despite the ban on their sales.

Data was collected from over 6,000 teenagers between the ages of 17 and 18. The data reveals that young people who have parents that smoke are 51% more likely to smoke traditional cigarettes. Additionally, young people who have parents that smoke are up to 55% more likely to use e-cigarettes.

Since 2009, Brazil's National Health Surveillance Agency (Anvisa) has banned the commercialization of e-cigarettes.

However, by 2022, 22.7% of teenagers aged 16 to 17 had already tried vaping.

According to the National School Health Survey (PeNSE) conducted by the Brazilian Institute of Geography and Statistics (IBGE), 13.6% of adolescents aged 13 to 15 have already tried vaping.

Although electronic cigarettes look different from traditional cigarettes and have different chemical compositions, they are still harmful to people's health. Therefore, caution must be exercised when using electronic cigarettes.

When inhaling the vapor from an electronic cigarette, it remains warm upon reaching the lungs. The temperature and substances present in e-cigarettes are the main causes of inflammation and lung damage.
