Noncigarette tobacco product use is associated with future cigarette smoking

Be aware that this study does not provide proof of causality.

Teens may think they're playing it safe by using e-cigarettes, hookahs and smokeless tobacco, but they're twice as likely to have smoked cigarettes a year later if they use alternative tobacco products, a new report says.

"Each type of non-cigarette tobacco product we studied - whether e-cigarettes, cigars, or smokeless tobacco - independently contributed to smoking risk", said senior study author Dr. Benjamin Chaffee of the University of California, San Francisco School of Dentistry.

However, this study was the first to directly compare these products, as well as compare use of a single product to polyuse of noncigarette products.

"Approximately 90 percent of adult smokers first tried a cigarette by 18 years of age, and even infrequent smoking in adolescence is associated with established adult smoking", the team writes.

"We have a public rhetoric around e-cigarettes that's really strong, but we should be thinking about other products", said Shannon Lea Watkins, one of the study's authors and a postdoctoral scholar at the UCSF's Center for Tobacco Control Research and Education.

"Products like e cigarettes are essentially gateways to smoking cigarettes", Chandler said. "Past 30-day use is the standard surveillance measure for current smoking among youths and is associated with smoking in adulthood". Then they asked if the teen had ever smoked a cigarette. Mean age was 14.3; about half were female and half were white. One year later, they surveyed the same individuals about ever and past 30-day use of cigarettes.

"Our nation has made enormous progress in reducing youth cigarette smoking".

The research also showed that teens who used more than one tobacco product were more likely to move on to traditional cigarettes. Their most frequent contacts included: signing up for email alerts; reading articles or watching videos online;, using a smartphone to scan a QR (Quick Response ) code about tobacco products to enter a sweepstakes or drawing from a tobacco company; and visiting a tobacco company website.

Study Limitations: The study accounted for known risk factors of youth smoking but other unknown factors may have influenced study results.

Smoking cessation researcher Scott McIntosh, PhD, of University of Rochester Medical Center, New York, told MedPage Today that the data examining the usefulness of e-cigarettes for smoking cessation are mixed. In order to get the powers that be to effect some sort of regulation of such contacts, one must have evidence that they do, in fact, affect young people's uptake and use of tobacco products.
