One in three U.S. high schoolers and one in eight middle schoolers currently use tobacco, according to new CDC data in MMWR.
Among the other findings from the 2019 National Youth Tobacco Survey:
- Roughly half of high schoolers and a quarter of middle schoolers said they had ever tried tobacco.
- E-cigarettes were the most common product, used by 28% of high schoolers and 11% of middle schoolers.
- Nearly 70% of students who reported current tobacco use opted for flavored products.
- Among current tobacco users, 26% of high schoolers and 21% of middle schoolers said they’d experienced tobacco cravings in the past 30 days.
