About

Overview

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), approximately seven percent of middle school students and 20 percent of high school students use tobacco or nicotine products. Everyone knows smoking is bad for you, so why do so many teens still smoke? Are e-cigarettes, hookah, and smokeless tobacco safer? How can individuals stop smoking or support others’ efforts to quit? This book answers these and other questions related to this high-interest topic, and follows a reader-friendly question-and-answer format that anticipates readers' needs and concerns. Prevalent myths and misconceptions are identified and dispelled, and a collection of case studies illustrates key concepts and issues through relatable stories and insightful recommendations. The book also includes a section on health literacy, equipping teens and young adults with practical tools and strategies for finding, evaluating, and using credible sources of health information both on and off the internet.
