MIAMI, FL--(Marketwire - December 31, 2012) - Looking for a last minute New Year's Resolution? Why not let go of those traditional cigarettes and picking up the healthier alternative to smoking by trying one of International Vapor Group's electronic cigarettes.
Cigarette smoking has significantly dropped in 2012. An annual survey reported that of 45,000 students in eighth, 10th and 12th grade, 10.6 percent said they had smoked a cigarette within the previous 30 days.
"A one percentage point decline may not sound like a lot, but it represents about a 9 percent reduction in a single year in the number of teens currently smoking," Lloyd Johnston, the principal investigator in the study, said in a statement.
More than 400,000 Americans are estimated to die prematurely each year as a result of cigarette smoking and it is the number one cause of preventable deaths in the United States. Most smokers also begin to smoke in adolescence, so it is important to keep the adolescents away from such an addictive habit.
International Vapor Group, also known as IVG, is an industry-leading manufacturer, distributor and marketer of popular e-cig brands South Beach Smoke, EverSmoke, and Optima Cigs. Very few electronic cigarette companies have the level of expertise, passion and resources that the International Vapor Group upholds. Their involvement has been a work in progress, while continuing to design and manufacture powerhouse products.
IVG thinks it's outstanding that the rate of cigarette smoking has significantly dropped among adolescents and wants to give all adults the opportunity to wean off traditional cigarettes with the help of an e-cig.
"This is the perfect time of year to take control of the toxics you put into your body. As the New Year rolls in, we'd love to see people choose to quit smoking for their New Year's resolution," said a representative from International Vapor Group.
As the electronic cigarette industry is rapidly growing with no signs of slowing down, retailers, distributors and wholesalers are all rushing to capitalize on the market, as researchers continue to conduct studies on the health benefits e-cigs provide versus traditional cigs, giving the electronic cigarette more exposure and availability to consumers. International Vapor Group has taken the lead in the industry by providing customers with three electronic cigarette brands to choose from, excellent quality products and superior customer service.
