Relationship between E-cigarette Use and Asthma Risk
E-cigarette use among teenagers may independently increase the risk of asthma, according to a study published in the Journal of Preventive Medicine.

A recent study published in the Journal of Preventive Medicine reveals the association between e-cigarette use and asthma among adolescents who have never smoked traditional tobacco products.


This study suggests that teenagers who use e-cigarettes may independently increase their risk of developing asthma compared to those who smoke traditional tobacco products.


In order to conduct a comparative study, researchers analyzed data from 3,000 teenagers aged 13-17 in Texas, as well as over 32,000 teenagers across the United States.


In the investigation, researchers asked participants whether they have ever used an e-cigarette, the frequency of use in the past 30 days, and if they have been informed of an asthma diagnosis.


The study also included information on gender, age, race, body mass index, and symptoms of depression.


Furthermore, data analysis also includes usage data of traditional cigarettes, alcohol, illegal drugs, and other substances.


Dr. Taehyun Roh, the primary author of the study, stated that increasing awareness of the harm associated with e-cigarette use, implementing strict regulations, and promoting alternative strategies for maintaining mental health are all potential effective interventions in reducing e-cigarette usage.


This study emphasizes the necessity of formulating strategies to tackle the increasingly prevalent use of e-cigarettes and their potential negative health impacts.
