From the point of view of men, non-smokers as the control group, smoking traditional cigarettes, the risk of depression is 3.54 times, the risk of depression using electronic cigarettes is 3.8 times, the difference is not significant.
However, when women used non-smokers as a control group, the risk of depression was 2.8 times that of using traditional cigarettes, and the risk of depression in #e-cigarette users exploded to 7.64 times!
#That is to say, the risk of depression among women who use e-cigarettes is very, very high. Compared with women who do not use any cigarettes, the risk of depression among women who use e-cigarettes is nearly eight times higher! (7.64)

To explore the reasons behind it, it may be that e-cigarettes contain excessive nicotine, which can easily cause brain inflammation and oxidative stress and aggravate the occurrence of depression! Of course, it may also be one of the reasons why women with depression tend to smoke and use electronic cigarettes.
