With Over 20 Million Adult U.S. Vapers, Now Is Time for Federal Agencies to Recognize Harm Reduction

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently updated its Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance Systems (BRFSS) survey. The annual survey measures various lifestyle indicators among adults aged 18 and over including demographics (including age and race), dietary and physical activities, substance use, combustible cigarette, and vapor product use. In 2022 (according to the BRFSS), 7.7 percent of U.S. adults were currently using e-cigarettes amounting to nearly 20.1 million adults vaping that year. This is a 15 percent increase from 2021 when 6.7 percent of adults vaped and amounts to more than 2.7 million additional adult vapers in 2022 than in 2021.
