Preventing Youth SmokingDownload audio (MP3)
In its first report on youth smoking in almost 20 years, the Surgeon General's Office warns that there is still a need to reduce the number of teens who smoke. Although the number of young smokers has decreased from earlier decades, the report says the rate of decline has slowed. We discuss the report's findings, and what can be done to curb youth smoking.
