Almost one in 20 U.S. adults now use e-cigarettes

MONDAY, August 27, 2018 (Reuters Health)—Roughly 10.8 million American adults are currently using e-cigarettes, and more than half of them are under 35 years old, a U.S. study suggests. One in three e-cigarette users are vaping daily, researchers report in the Annals of Internal Medicine.
