E-Cig use on the increase among youth
The numbers are in and a new report by the Centers for Disease Control show that E-cigarette use among teens is on the rise.
From 2011-2015 the use of E-cigs rose from 1.5% to 16% among high school students. The numbers among middle school students are on the rise too. Their use was 0.6% in 2011 and increased to 5.3% by 2015.
The next most popular tobacco product among high school students was cigars and hookahs for middle school students.
Those numbers make E-cigarettes the most popular tobacco product among youth.
The CDC says that no form of youth tobacco use is safe because nicotine use during adolescence may effect brain development.
