sestovic/iStock(ATLANTA) — Youth tobacco use has risen dramatically in the last year, according to a new study released by The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Nearly 5 million middle and high school students reported use of some type of tobacco product in 2018 — up from 3.6 million in 2017, according to the CDC study released Monday.
With e-cigarettes accounting for the recent rise, the agency says the increase in use by teens marks a substantial upswing over 2017, erasing past progress in reducing youth tobacco use. One-and-a-half million more teens used e-cigs in 2018 compared to 2017, while the use of other tobacco products was flat.
