A new study released Monday confirms a giant spike in the number of high school students who are joking and there may be many who may not realize that they are almost completely and inhalates very addictive nicotine.

7. Nearly 21 percent of seniors said they had recently vaped in 2018, compared with 11 percent in 2017. [19659007] The results are similar to the amazing numbers released by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention last month, resulting in an increase of 78 percent in e-cigarette use by teens in just one year. The increase was so worrying that the Food and Drug Administration announced a series of measures aimed at reducing access to vape products.

“The most surprising news was how often teenagers swap,” says Dr. Wilson Compton, Deputy Director of the National Institute on Drug Abuse, who ordered the survey, told NBC News. “Currently, over a third of senior seniors report reporting using a weapon product.”

The latest survey indicates that students may not realize that they are using an addictive substance. More than 25 percent claimed that they waved “just flavoring” in the last year, up from 20.6 percent in 2017. However, Compton said that the students may not really check.

Most vaping products contain nicotine and juul, the clearly most popular e-cigarette product, does not offer nicotine-free flavors.

“The children say they only use flavors, but they may not know it,” told Compton of NBC News. Other studies have shown that people claim that they use nicotine-free products when they are not. “So we’re not so sure that when they say they only use flavors as they really know what’s in them,” says Compton.

Several studies have shown that teenagers using e-cigarettes are more likely to smoke what is now called combustible tobacco – old-fashioned cigarettes. And there is a growing evidence that these are not just children who smoke instead of smoking. Studies indicate that many children move back and forth between wet and smoking.

“One of the biggest risks we know is that when the kids start with a gun, they are more likely to switch to combustible smoke cigarettes. So that’s really what affects us all.” We know the dangers of smoked, flammable tobacco “says Compton.

“Everything that increases the likelihood of the transition is of great concern.”

Experts worry that high nicotine content in vape products may be addictive new generation tobacco users.

When researchers assembled diapers and smokers, they found that nicotine use increased by 5.2 percentage points, from barely 24 percent to just under 29 percent of 12 degrees.

“These results indicate that the policy in place during the school year 2017-2018 was not enough to stop the spread of nicotine wasting among young people, “wrote the team posted by Richard Miech at the University of Michigan in a letter to the New England Journal of Medicine, released with the report.

There are good news in the annual Monitoring the Future survey conducted by the University of Michigan each year on behalf of NIDA. This year 44,482 students participated in 392 public and private schools. Only 3.6 percent of senior seniors reported that they smoke cigarettes daily, compared with 22.4 percent 20 years ago.

Fewer students use opioids, too – a direct contrast to the rest of the population. Abuse of opioids and opioid deaths has reached record numbers among adults between 21 and 65 years.

“A few years ago, we saw that over 10 percent of senior seniors reported to use Vicodin in a certain year, meaning that one in 10 high school students uses these dangerous prescription opioid drugs.” Currently, the figure is more like 1.7 percent. “

Less than half of one percent of the 12th grade said they used heroin.

” With illegal opioan use, the lowest in the study history is possible to be in high school offers a protective effect against opioid abuse and addiction, “says NIDA Director Dr Nora Volkow.” We will focus a lot on our new preventive research during the time when teens change from school to the adult world and are exposed to the dangerous use of these drugs. “[19659024] Fewer teens abuse alcohol

Just 17.5 percent of the 12 degrees said they had been drinking for the past 30 days, a decrease significantly from 26 percent 2013, showed the survey. Under 14 percent they said they had been drinking, defined as having five or more drinks in a row. It compares with more than 31 percent in 1998.

However, students use marijuana, and many see it as safe. This reflects attitudes among people like their parents’ age: As more states legalize the recreational use of cannabis, more say they think it’s safe and natural.

The survey showed that 36 percent of the seniors used marijuana at least sometimes and close to 6 percent said they used it daily. “This means that 2 or 3 children in the typical class around the country use marijuana pretty much every day while they are in school,” says Compton.
