WE’LL BE STRAIGHTFORWARD: The science behind vaping is all over the place. Some studies say nicotine-packed e-cigs are particularly harmful to your heart health, while others suggest that vaping is a better alternative because cigarettes release more cancer-causing carcinogens.

And while we’ve previously reported on a study that shows vapers are more likely to quit smoking, the latest research suggests the exact opposite.

Young adults who use e-cigarettes are four times more likely to start smoking traditional tobacco products than their nonvaping counterparts, according to a new study published in the American Journal of Medicine.
