"vaping" does lead to smoking cigarettes

Pro-smoking lobby fears people who light up at home will be ‘persecuted into submission

They got the data from a group of nearly 45,000 Canadian high school students, who self-reported their cigarette and e-cigarette use.

It goes on to say, "In the meantime, regulatory frameworks that succeed in shifting ecigarette use away from youth and concentrating their use among cigarette smokers for the purposes of smoking cessation are likely to have the greatest public health impact".

Schoolchildren in England are now more likely to have tried e-cigarettes than traditional cigarettes, with more than one in three 15-year-olds having used the devices, despite the fact it has been illegal to sell them to under-18s since October 2015. A study of more than 44,000 Grade 9 to 12 students in Ontario and Alberta shows a linkage between so-called vaping and subsequent tobacco use.

Crucially, however, they were also 79 per cent more likely to become daily tobacco smokers in the intervening year.

Lead author David Hammond, of the school of public health and health systems at the university, said: "While our study provides strong evidence that e-cigarettes are associated with smoking initiation among youth, the association is unclear". "E-cigarette use may also help to "re-normalize" smoking by promoting more positive normative beliefs about nicotine use and smoking, which are important predictors of uptake".

Despite the research showing an association between e-cigarettes and cigarette smoking, it is minimal - at least for now. "It is highly plausible that 'common factors" account for a substantial proportion of increased cigarette-smoking initiation among e-cigarette users.

They were supposed to help people smoke less or quit entirely.

He suggests it may be because Canadian merchants are unethical and sell vaping liquid to youths whereas the penalty for selling cigarettes is too high.

A spokesman for the UK Vaping Industry Association said: 'We welcome all research into e-cigarettes and vaping products, however this study merely shows that those who try e-cigarettes are also likely to have also tried tobacco.

Europe's highest legal expert, Dr Juliane Kokott, the advocate general to the European Court of Justice, in 2015 warned that e-cigarettes "possibly cause risks to human health" and that they may provide a "gateway" for teenagers to start smoking tobacco.

He says they may try vaping before cigarettes because its easier to come by as tobacco can not be sold to young people.
