No longer the hot new thing? Teen vaping falls, study says
June 16, 2017
NEW YORK (AP) — Teen vaping, which has been skyrocketing, fell dramatically last year in the United States.
A government survey released Thursday suggests the number of high school and middle school students using electronic cigarettes fell to 2.2 million last year, from 3 million the year before.
Health officials have worried about the booming popularity of vaping products among kids and the potential impact on adult smoking rates in the future.
"It certainly is a public health win," said Brian King, an expert on smoking and health at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
