U.S. Sees Record Low in Cigarette Smoking, Increase in E-Cigarette Use: CDC Report

U.S. Sees Record Low in Cigarette Smoking, Increase in E-Cigarette Use: CDC Report 

The latest government survey released by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows that cigarette smoking in the United States has dropped to an all-time low, with only one in nine adults being current smokers. At the same time, the use of electronic cigarettes has increased, with roughly one in 17 adults admitting to using e-cigarettes.

The survey gathered responses from over 27,000 adults and revealed that cigarette smoking is a major risk factor for heart disease, stroke, and lung cancer, and has been identified as the leading cause of preventable deaths.

In 2021, the percentage of adult smokers dropped to 11%, which is a decrease from about 12.5% in the previous year. While these findings are preliminary and are subject to further analysis, the CDC is expected to release the final 2021 data soon.

However, the use of e-cigarettes has risen to nearly 6% in 2021, which is an increase from about 4.5% in the previous year. This trend is concerning because the long-term health effects of e-cigarettes are still unknown. These findings highlight the importance of continuing efforts to reduce cigarette smoking and to curb the use of e-cigarettes.

In conclusion, while the decline in cigarette smoking is an encouraging trend, the rise in e-cigarette usage warrants attention and further study to protect public health.
