“With so little evidence available, consumers should hold off vaping until more is known.
But people are not holding off. Widespread marketing to young people — and the unproven notion that e-cigarettes are not harmful — has led to increasing sales. More young people are now vaping than smoking.
According to the 2015 Healthy Kids Colorado Survey, cigarette smoking among high school students reached an all-time low of 8.6 percent, while e-cigarette use climbed to 26 percent. The proportion of adults in Colorado who have ever used e-cigarettes tripled from 6.9 percent to 22.8 percent from 2012 to 2015 while adult smoking rates held steady at around 17 percent, according to state health department data.”
