E-cigarette users likely to have strokes at younger age than smokers, study says

A new study shows e-cigarette users are more likely to have early strokes than traditional cigarette smokers.

Researchers at the Icahn School of Medicine at New York's Mount Sinai hospital looked at almost 80,000 records over three years.

They found stroke victims who vaped had their strokes at a median age of 48 years old.

That's 11 years younger than the median age of stroke for cigarette smokers.
