A newly published study examined electronic nicotine delivery system (ENDS) use and their associations with conventional cigarette smoking and nicotine addiction among Asian Americans (AAs). Findings included: AAs who ever used ENDS reported they were more likely to smoke conventional cigarettes, smoke ≤100 cigarettes in a lifetime, and felt more difficulty concentrating without using tobacco than those who never used END. Theresearchers concluded that ENDS use may be associated with conventional cigarette smoking and may lead to nicotine addiction among AAs.
