Balanced News: Tobacco, E-Cigarette Use Declines Among High Schoolers, Report Shows

Our 'quick read' news summary

A national survey by the FDA and CDC shows that tobacco and e-cigarette use among high schoolers in the US is declining. Smoking rates among high school-aged teens fell by 25% between 2022 and 2023, with 12.6% currently using tobacco products, down from over 21% in 2009-2010. E-cigarette use also fell by over 25% to 10% of those surveyed. However, the survey was self-administered, raising potential concerns about the accuracy of responses. The CDC emphasizes the importance of reducing tobacco use among high schoolers to prevent lifelong addiction. Middle schoolers, on the other hand, showed a slight increase in nicotine use.
