Teens regularly exposed to secondhand smoke


Close to half of U.S. middle and high school students who never used tobacco themselves were exposed to secondhand smoke in 2013, often at home or in cars, according to a new study from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta. Progress has been made in creating smoke-free public places and reducing secondhand smoke exposure among our nation's youth, but many remain exposed, said lead author Israel Agaku.
