NO SMOKING DAY - will you be ditching the ciggies today?

Those who had used e-cigarettes were 12 times more likely to have smoked tobacco a study of young people found

It is celebrated in communities across the world trying to educate more people every year.

The model estimates that e-cigarette use in 2014 would eventually lead to about 1,510,000 years of life lost-a figure based on an optimistic 95 percent relative harm reduction of using e-cigarettes compared to traditional cigarettes.

Smoking increases the risk of hearing loss according to a recent study conducted by a team of Japanese researchers.

He also added that nicotine exposure may be harmful to the ears.

The U.S. National Institute on Drug Abuse has more about e-cigarettes.

They examined the effects of smoking status (current, former and never smokers), the number of cigarettes smoked per day, and the duration of smoking cessation on the extent of hearing loss.

Scientists today discovered adults who smoke are 60% more likely too suffer hearing loss. The 47-year-old Jason Shankey started smoking at the age of 11, but even after his continuous efforts, he failed to give up smoking over the years.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, smoking is the No. 1 cause of preventable disease and deaths, and accounts for about 1 in 5 deaths.

Lagan Valley MLA Robbie Butler has backed Cancer Focus Northern Ireland's call to local smokers to stub out their cigarettes and become "Proud Quitters". In October, the FDA addressed youth use of e-cigarettes and other electronic nicotine-delivery systems (ENDS) through its "The Real Cost" campaign.

However, the research showed that most of the who used e-cigarettes to quit did not switch entirely and were still smoking traditional cigarettes.

Electronic cigarettes have always been touted not only as a safer alternative to cigarettes but as a potential avenue by which existing smokers might quit. However, the Dartmouth researchers point out that a future in which e-cigarettes do help people quit isn't impossible-as long as they're kept out of the hands of young people.

A study released Tuesday found that "heat not burn" smokeless devices can release toxic chemicals when heated up to temperatures that are usually exceeded during use.

It's National No Smoking Day and health officials are warning that misunderstandings about nicotine may be stopping people who want to quit from using e-cigarettes or nicotine replacement therapies like patches and gum. "We can't afford to wait while the health of hundreds of thousands of people across Yorkshire continues to be harmed from tobacco smoke".

He urged passage of regulations to make kid-friendly flavors less available and to "reduce the level of known toxins and carcinogens in e-juice".
