There is no link between e-cigarette advertising and the rapidly growing number of young vapers, according to a study published in the International Journal Of Drug Policy.

Released at the end of 2015, the research also concluded that increasing e-cigarette advertising does not detract from tobacco control efforts and didn’t prevent people from quitting smoking.

E-cigarette advertising became a hot topic this week after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released a report Jan. 5 showing that seven in 10 middle and high school students had seen e-cigarettes ads.

“It’s no coincidence. Advertising works,” CDC Director Dr. Tom Frieden told Fox News. “And when kids see ads — and they see them on the Internet, they see them on TV and in magazines and in stores — they’re more likely to use e-cigarettes. And that’s a problem.”
