According to Vapingpost, France recently launched a study aimed at determining whether "e-cigarettes increase the likelihood of young smokers turning into daily smokers." However, the results show the opposite.
Researchers analyzed the link between e-cigarettes and smoking using retrospective data from nearly 40.000 participants in the 2017 French National Representative Survey. The number of participants with a history of smoking was 21.401. In this group, teens who reported using e-cigarettes were less likely than those who transitioned to daily smoking at the age of 17.
Researchers have found that this approach remains the same whether using e-cigarettes before or after smoking. To this end, the researchers concluded that there is no evidence that e-cigarettes can cause smoking. "Our study found that there is no evidence that people who have ever used e-cigarettes increase their daily smoking risk at the age of 17. and they also use e-cigarettes. Experimental. Further research should use causal reasoning to study the long-term effects of e-cigarettes on future smoking habits. "
