The NDEWS Coordinating Center thought you would be interested to know that CDC and FDA released results from the 2014 National Youth Tobacco Survey (YTS) this afternoon. The results discussed in the press release "show that current e-cigarette use (use on at least 1 day in the past 30 days) among high school students increased from 4.5 percent in 2013 to 13.4 percent in 2014, rising from approximately 660,000 to 2 million students. Among middle school students, current e-cigarette use more than tripled from 1.1 percent in 2013 to 3.9 percent in 2014—an increase from approximately 120,000 to 450,000 students. This is the first time since the survey started collecting data on e-cigarettes in 2011 that current e-cigarette use has surpassed current use of every other tobacco product overall, including conventional cigarettes. (CDC, 4/16/15)"
The CDC press release has been picked up by numerous news outlets. Here are links to the press release, the MMWR article, and stories put out today by the New York Times and Reuters.
