E-Cigarettes Are Dangerous for People Who Don’t Already Smoke – Tonic

Read article - Continued coverage of a study led by Samir Soneji, assistant professor of the Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice, that found that while e-cigarettes may help some smokers quit, they seem to do a better job of encouraging never-smokers to pick up the habit. Specifically, Soneji and his colleagues estimated that smoking e-cigs in 2014 led about 2,070 current smokers to quit the following year, but that 168,000 people ages 12 to 29 who'd never smoked before would start smoking cigarettes and become daily users between the ages of 35 and 39.
