Teenagers are between three and five times more likely to start smoking if they have used electronic cigarettes previously, a new report has claimed.

The Health Research Board (HRB) [...] said its review into e-cigarette use found that e-cigarettes are associated with adolescents starting to smoke tobacco cigarettes, which could potentially lead to serious harm. Its review concluded that e-cigarettes are no more effective than approved and regulated nicotine replacement therapies (NRTs) to help people stop smoking, while their safety beyond 12 months is not yet known.
