Smoking hits all-time low in US

Via Dimarik16

While there are some that say electronic cigarettes may help smokers quit, the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force found that "evidence is insufficient to recommend e-cigarettes for smoking cessation in adults, including pregnant women".

About 14 percent of U.S adults admit to being smokers previous year, down from about 16 percent in 2016, government figures from the CDC show.

"Everything is pointed in the right direction", said K. Michael Cummings, a tobacco researcher at Medical University of SC, according to the Associated Press.

Smoking is at its lowest level ever, but rural residents smoke far more than their city cousins do, according to a federal report released Tuesday.

But 21.5 percent of adults in areas with a population of fewer than 50,000 people were smokers, compared to 11.4 percent of people in metropolitan areas with a population of 1 million or more.

Even though that still totals to more than 30 million adult smokers in the US, the slight decrease shows a trend that fewer people are picking up or continuing the habit. Since then, thorough research to gain more insight that links smoking to health dangers such as cancer, emphysema, lung disease and heart disease, to name a few, has made great strides in providing more education and awareness to the risks of the risky habit, coinciding with the decline in smoking being reported. The survey shows data from 2017 to 2006, when the adult smoking rate was almost 21 percent.

Energy is reportedly the first order of business, although the administration is trying to keep the specifics beneath the radar. Israeli Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman warned after Monday's strikes that Gazans would pay a price for the "fire attacks".

As of Monday, the companies must note the potentially deadly consequences of smoking, as well as how tobacco companies have designed cigarettes to enhance the delivery of nicotine, making them more addictive. "While the progress is welcome. much more needs to be done to ensure all Americans benefit from policies created to address tobacco use", said Paul Billings, senior vice president.

Juuling is the latest smoking craze to hit college campuses. In 1964, the Surgeon General released the first government report linking smoking with certain diseases. More teens are using e-cigarettes with an estimated 13 percent of high schoolers that use it or other vaping devices.

Among teenagers however traditional cigarette smoking is also at an all time low at 9 percent finds this new survey.
