A recent US survey has found that teenagers who use a tobacco product are the most likely to use multiple forms, such as: hookahs, pipes, e-cigarettes and smokeless tobacco.

The survey showed that 15 per cent of students in high school and middle school use more than one tobacco product. As well as this, 3 per cent of the teenagers use cigarettes with another tobacco product.

The research also found that 4.3 per cent of youths admitted to using three or more tobacco products in the last 30 days, as opposed to 2.8 per cent, who used just cigarettes.

The percentage of teens using three or more products was lower than that of the adults (2.4 per cent).

The findings support the idea that cigarette use amongst youths, is decreasing, whilst the use of other tobacco products is rising.

The survey showed that e-cigarettes usage amongst teenagers is twice as high as that of both e-cigarettes and normal cigarettes.

Alternative research from RTI found that the advertising of e-cigs has doubled for youths in the United States in the period from 2010 to 2013. This may be because there are not the same federal regulations that apply to the advertising of cigarettes.

Further research from the RTI found that the particles in e-cigarette vapours could make respiratory diseases, such as asthma and bronchitis, worse.
