Two research surveys show that 85% of teenagers have been exposed to e-cigarette advertising. The ads violate WHO bans and are widely distributing online and in other media that are difficult to regulate.
Although these ads violate World Health Organization (WHO) recommendations to ban all forms of e-cigarette advertising, they are widely distributing online and other digital media that are difficult to regulate.
The study points out that many governments have implemented strict control policies on e-cigarettes. However, e-cigarette advertisements still find ways to reach young people.
What’s more, of the 4,107 study participants, 1,011 says they lack knowledge about e-cigarettes. These people are mainly from China (50%) and India (35%). In addition, about 85% of respondents say they have ever been exposing to at least one form of e-cigarette advertising. Moreover, most of the advertisements are through social media platforms, which is far higher exposure to other forms of media.
Further more, research shows another data. For every additional media advertisement a young person is exposed to, e-cigarette consumption increases by 5%.

By these restrictions, we can let these ads stay away from the teenagers.
