Electronic cigarettes aren’t just popular among middle and high school students. Plenty of US working adults are drawn to the battery-powered devices that deliver nicotine and flavorings—along with carcinogens and toxins—in a heated aerosol.
To find out which working adults use e-cigarettes most often, CDC researchers analyzed data from the 2014 National Health Interview Survey, which for the first time included questions about e-cigarette use. Overall, 3.8% of adult employees—an estimated 5.5 million people—used e-cigarettes in 2014.
