      Use of E-cigarettes Among Youth Remains Low - New Research By ASH

      New research by ASH (Action on Smoking and Health) October 31, 2016 finds the use of e-cigarettes remains low among young people.

      This new research supports that there is no evidence the youth are taking up smoking through their use of electronic cigarettes and regular use of e-cigs is still rare and mostly confined to those who were already smokers or those who had previously smoked. Research also shows a continued decline in smoking among children which is positive news.

      There has, however, been a rise in the proportion of young people who mistakenly believe that e-cigarettes are equally as harmful to the user as smoking traditional cigarettes.

      The New Nicotine Alliance submitted an application to the Australian Therapeutics Goods Administration, a not for profit consumer advocacy group supporting public health, has to exempt low concentrations of nicotine for use in electronic cigarettes as a safer alternative to smoking.
