Teen use of flavored tobacco products in new york city



Teen use of flavored tobacco products in new york city



Nicotine and Tobacco Research 16(11): 1518-1521



Teen use of flavored tobacco products is a concern. Menthol cigarettes have been found to influence teen smoking; however, less is known about the association between teen use of other flavored tobacco products, such as cigars and dip, and cigarette smoking. The New York City 2010 Special Communities Putting Prevention to Work Youth Risk Behavior Survey data (N = 1,800 aged 13-17 years) were analyzed to examine the association between ever trying flavored tobacco products and current smoking, after we adjusted for demographics and ever-use of menthol cigarettes. Twenty percent of teens reported ever trying flavored tobacco products; youth who were current smokers (58%) were more likely to have tried flavored tobacco products than youth who were not current smokers (16%). Controlling for menthol cigarette use, teens who had ever tried flavored tobacco products were nearly 3 times more likely to be current smokers than those who had never tried flavored tobacco products (odds ratio = 2.70, 95% confidence interval = 1.47-4.98). Ever trying flavored tobacco products was strongly associated with current smoking among teens. The findings from this study suggest that regulations prohibiting sales of flavored tobacco products could decrease youth smoking.
