Scientists have found a connection between the cost of cigarettes and the amount of alcohol used

What'S Wrong With E-Cigarettes? (Health And Medical Video June 2018).

The more expensive the tobacco products cost, the less people spend on alcohol.

To this conclusion came American scientists from the University of Washington, who decided to trace the consequences of increasing the cost of cigarettes.

Laws in the United States prohibit smoking in enclosed spaces (other than private residences of citizens), and also provide for higher taxes on cigarettes, which has already led to a rise in price of tobacco products. Researchers from Washington have confirmed that these harsh measures have achieved the goals that were set by their creators - the number of smokers in the country dropped sharply. Moreover, they are less in those states where the most severe restrictions apply.

But it turned out also that the increase in the cost of cigarettes led to a drop in demand for alcoholic beverages. Thus, an increase in the average price of tobacco products by 20% caused a drop in sales of beer by 4%, and strong alcoholic beverages by as much as 11%. That is, smokers, apparently, prefer to save on alcohol to pay for the purchase of cigarettes. And only consumption of wine is not connected with the increase in the cost of cigarettes. Experts believe that this is due to the fact that the main consumers of wine are not just smokers, but healthier and educated citizens who use moderate wine for the sake of prevention and satisfaction.
