Juul E-Cigarettes may be more addictive teens than tobacco


In the new survey participants answered questions as well as their perception of traditional cigarettes and electronic cigarettes, including the market leader Jules. In addition, participants who used electronic cigarettes have also completed a standardized questionnaire to assess the quality of nicotine.

During the last seven or 30 days of use of tobacco products, the participants often used common cigarettes two times using Yul. Young people also know the general belief that e-cigarettes are "less harmful or narcotics" than other research products.

Among the participants who tried Juu, 58,8% said they had used Uuval for the last 30 days. In comparison, approximately 30.1 percent was observed using other electronic cigarettes, and 28.3 percent used the usual cigarette in the same period.

Although the sample size is small, numbers have a significant difference between Yulus users and other electronic cigarettes and the usual cigarette users. This can be reflected in higher rates of dependence among juulers, suggested by Bonnie Halpern-Felser, professor of Stanford pediatrician, research director.

"I was surprised and worried that so many young people were more likely to use Jules for other products," said Helper-Felser. "We should help them understand the risk of narcology, it is not a solid cigarette but still contains a huge amount of nicotine – a cigarette package."

Joule published a statement in response to Stanford's research.

"We agree that Juul's inadequate use is absolutely unacceptable and directly contradicts our task of providing alternative alternatives to alternative cigarettes of existing adult smokers to eliminate cigarettes," the company said. "We support working with people who have to keep nicotine products in the hands of young people. "

Stanford Research is funded by the National Oncology Institute, the US Food and Drug Administration Center for Tobacco Products, Child Health Research Institute and Stanford Pediatric Department.

As the use of electronic cigarette increases, it is certain that the next few months and years will be more research. At the same time, Stanford's team developed a free tobacco prevention tool for instruments and parenting Available online.
