Adolescents and young adults who use electronic cigarettes are more likely to progress to smoking tobacco cigarettes than those who do not, shows a small US study that researchers say supports regulations to limit sales and reduce the appeal of e-cigarettes to young people.

The study, published in JAMA Pediatrics, followed up a nationally representative sample of 694 teenagers and young adults aged 16 to 26 who had never smoked. Their attitudes showed that they were not susceptible to smoking cigarettes because they had responded “definitely no” when asked whether they would try a cigarette offered by a friend or whether they believed that they would smoke a cigarette within the next year.
