Children who try vaping because it is “cool” could inadvertently become hooked on nicotine and take up smoking, a new study has warned. E-cigarettes enable smokers to use nicotine without many of the health effects of smoking regular tobacco products, but the findings show that as many as half of young vapers have never tried a normal cigarette. The study raises questions about the lower tax levy placed on e-cigarettes, and the use of sweet flavourings that appeal to younger users. Research from Coventry University, where researchers surveyed 499 pupils, shows that less than half of users knew that vape products contain nicotine, and less than half knew that they were addictive.
