A new study mixing cigarettes and E-cigarettes

YUMA, Ariz. (KYMA, KECY-TV) - A new study finds that mixing cigarettes and E-cigarettes does not decrease the risk of heart disease.

Researchers examined data from more than 24,000 adults and found that those who use both traditional cigarettes as well as E-cigarettes' did not reduce their risk of cardiovascular disease compared to people who exclusively used traditional cigarettes.

The study also found that people who only used E-cigarettes and those who used both traditional cigarettes as well as e-cigarettes were younger than people who used neither product.

Just over 60-percent who only used E-cigarettes and over 50-percent of dual users were younger than 35.
