Survey on electronic cigarette usage conducted among students in Mongolia

AKIPRESS.COM - The Association of Teachers and Researchers for the Development of Health Education, together with the Health Promotion Fund, organized the survey "Effects of electronic cigarettes on the health of young people". 667 students aged between 11 and 18 from the capital and rural areas took part in the survey, the UB Post reported.

458 children said that they do not use electronic cigarettes, while 209 said they do use electronic cigarettes. According to the survey, 14 to 16-year-old students use e-cigarettes the most. 60% of users were male and the rest were female.

Many respondents said that the influence of a friend or family member smoking near them contributed to their usage of electronic cigarettes. 90% of the children who use e-cigarettes said they have tried to quit smoking last year, while 10% have not tried to quit at all. In addition, shopkeepers sell cigarettes without asking their age.

According to the survey, it was determined that the knowledge of teenagers about e-cigarettes is insufficient, and the use of vape is high, and it is necessary to organize extensive preventive work against the use.
