Young people think hookahs and e-cigs are better for you than cigarettes

A new study has found that while the scientific community hasn’t completely cleared e-cigs as safe for consumption, young adults are turning more and more to e-cigs as well as hookahs instead of cigarettes, and tend to believe they are safer.

Researchers from Rutgers University studies data from 2,871 young adults, both smokers and non-smokers. They were between the ages of 18 and 34, according to a Financial Express report.

In all, 62.1 percent of young adults from 18 to 24 thought e-cigarettes were less risky than cigarettes, and 54.6 percent of those between 25 and 34 thought the same way.

About 32.7 percent of the younger age group felt that way about the hookah, while that number was 18.5 percent for 25 to 34 year olds.

About 57.8 percent of all respondents agreed that e-cigs were healthier.
