E-cigarette use and smoking among adolescents: are gateway concerns supported by the data?
10:50 - 11:05
Youth Initiation and Smoking Cessation
Given recent changes in e-cigarette use and smoking rates seen among youths in the US, there are fears that novel nicotine delivery devices may undermine decades of tobacco control efforts to prevent smoking uptake in adolescents. This presentation will use latest data from UK and US cross-sectional and longitudinal population surveys as well as from a micro-simulation model to interrogate whether such concerns are justified and how trends in North America compare with those seen in the UK.
