Recent studies conducted on e-cigarettes have shown that the number of people who are using this new age smoking device is rapidly increasing in number. Almost 80 percent of the people who use electronic cigarettes believe that it is a healthier option than tobacco cigarettes. Many have even claimed that using e-cigarettes have helped them to curb their long standing addiction of smoking traditional cigarettes.

Roswell Park study on electronic cigarettes

A study conducted at the Roswell Park Cancer Research Institute has shown that more and more smokers are leaning towards the use of e-cigarettes. The study also revealed that young smokers under the age of 25 were 4 times more inclined to use e-cigarettes than the rest of the smoking population. The use of e-cigarettes was also found to be higher among those who smoked more than 20 cigarettes a day and smokers who didn’t smoke daily. The study concluded that e-cigarettes were getting popular among the smoking population. The non-smoking population is less inclined to try it and so it is an accepted alternative to tobacco cigarettes.

Study by CDC

The Centres for Disease Control and Prevention in the US also conducted a study on the use of electronic cigarettes. According to their study, the number of electronic cigarette users has increased from 9.8% in 2010 to 21.2% in 2012. The use of electronic cigarettes among people who used to smoke traditional cigarettes also showed an increase from 2.4% to 7.5%. All these figures are a clear indication that the use of electronic cigarettes is gaining more acceptability around the world. The studies also indicate that usage of electronic cigarette is a good strategy to bring about a reduction in the smoking of traditional tobacco cigarettes.

A solution to addiction

Quitting smoking is definitely a hard job. But, those who have tried electronic cigarettes claim that it has made the job of quitting smoking much easier. Smokers who wish to improve upon their health are slowly shifting to the use of e-cigarettes. Electronic cigarettes are proven to reduce the chance of occurrence of conditions like lung cancer. E-cigarettes also have acceptance from non-smokers owing to the fact that they do not produce any second-hand smoke. The odourless nature of e-cigarettes has also increased its popularity and has led more and more people to buy them. These can be considered as the main reasons behind the rise in popularity of electronic cigarettes.
