New research suggests young people who vape alongside smoking are twice as likely to suffer from a stroke as those who only smoke cigarettes. The study warns that those who use e-cigarettes and standard cigarettes in tandem could potentially be putting themselves even further at risk from smoking-related diseases.

Published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine, the research investigated “adjusted odds ratios [AORs]” for cerebrovascular events – like strokes. A team from George Mason University examined data from the 2016-17 Behaviour Risk Factor Surveillance System (an annual health survey carried out across the USA) during the study.

They analysed over 160,000 responses on cigarette and e-cigarette use from participants aged between 18 and 44, most of whom were male.The findings showed the AOR of a cerebrovascular event among current smokers was 1.59. For those who had switched to vaping exclusively, the AOR jumped to 2.54. But for those who continue to vape and smoke cigarettes, the AOR was 2.91. Read more HERE.
