"E-cigarettes act as gateway to smoking for teens, scientists warn" - Yahoo News - ANI. 2/7/2017.

New evidence from ISR's Monitoring the Future indicates that vaping is "a one-way bridge to cigarette smoking among youth." The risk of teens who used e-cigarettes taking up cigarettes was four times greater than for their non-vaping peers. Richard Miech warns that vaping may desensitize teens to the dangers of smoking cigarettes.
