according to Andrea King, professor of study at the University of Chicago and director of the study « The new e-cigarettes, known as Vapepen are now bigger and more powerful ". Although they deliver a simple dose of nicotine they still share too many features with smoking including inhalation, exhalation and hand to mouth gestures.
According to her " These factors are effective triggers that encourage others to vapotage. The impact is the same as when watching a smoker light a cigarette, this encourages young people to smoke. ».
Despite the fact that e-cigarettes can help smokers quit smoking, studies have not yet been able to confirm that smoking definitely contributes to quitting smoking. This study was published in the newspaper Nicotine & Tobacco Research,
