Fewer smokers remained, as the United States wants to tamp down the usage of even electronic cigarettes completely in the states, according to the new study.
A team of researchers from the School of Medicine and the College of Global Public Health at the New York University, has recently observed that the states that strictly regulated anti-tobacco rules such as cigarette taxes and smoke-free air laws, are now having not only a very less number of vapor users as well as few cigarette smokers, but also the fewer users of e-cigarette.
Study’s leading author, Dr. Omar El-Shahawy, who is a postdoctoral fellow at the NYU School of Medicine said in a statement during news release that, “Our research adds to the understanding of the geographic and sociodemographic factors underlying e-cigarette use within the existing tobacco control environment.”
The new research has been disclosed in the journal Nicotine & Tobacco Research, which shows that the current tobacco controlling measures over the state are more likely to restrain the usage of e-cigarettes, despite that the study was just aimed at controlling traditional cigarettes.
With the help of data obtained from the State of Tobacco Control report 2018 released by the American Lung Association in 2013 and 2014, the researchers evaluated the measures and policies for state tobacco control.
Dr. El-Shahawy added that, “Several decades of research on traditional cigarettes guided the existing tobacco control environment. E-cigarettes are relatively new and constantly evolving, which makes the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s task in regulating them very challenging.”
