If a person thinks an e-cigarette is better than regular cigarettes, the person is more likely to use them, according to a new study.
The study showed that people are more likely to experiment with e-cigarettes even though the long-term oral health effects are unknown. The information appears in the American Journal of Preventative Medicine.
The University of Minnesota research team explored the correlation between thinking e-cigarettes are harmless and the use of them. After studying nearly 1,400 young people who had never smoked e-cigarettes, the conclusion was that they were more likely to use them based on the perception that they were less harmful than regular cigarettes.
