Nicotine can cause significant harm to children. The cluster of marketed tobacco products and reported cases of child-nicotine exposure have increased in recent years.
Given the changing in the landscape of tobacco products in recent years, the array of products through which children could be exposed to nicotine has been grown larger. Thus, it is specifically important to understand adults’ perceptions of the harms of nicotine to children and to identify any socio demographic factors related to inaccurate risk perceptions.
Although most respondents characterized nicotine as “definitely harmful” to children, there were notable subgroup differences. When compared with women, men had significantly lower odds of characterizing nicotine as “definitely harmful” to children.Most of them believed that it would be dangerous when a child is exposed to nicotine e-liquids, and many of the parents who used an ENDS did not have enough knowledge about nicotine-specific harms to children.
By giving the increase in array of sources of nicotine exposure, research is needed to examine adults’ perceptions of the specific harms of nicotine to children. Thus, with the recent study, we desired to examine whether demographic and/or behavioral factors are related to perceptions of nicotine harm to children. Perceptions of nicotine harm to children were assessed generally, regardless of mode of exposure.
The increasing use of ENDS and other non-combusted tobacco products in the US adult population presents new sources of nicotine consumption and exposure not only to the users but also to the children who live with them.
Based on the current findings, such interventions might target specific subgroups. According to the research based, the perceptions which harms the children from exposure to sources of nicotine (including cigarettes, cigarette butts, all types of cigars, hookahs, chewing tobacco, snuff, and ENDS e-liquids) and how these materials are handled and stored in the presence of children is needed to identify risk factors associated with such exposures.
