Teens turn to e-cigarettes as tobacco smoking hits 40-year low among school-aged youths
A new University of Michigan study shows that tobacco use among high school-aged teens has fallen to the lowest it's been in the last 40 years, but kids have replaced traditional smoking habits with something experts say is still harmful to their health.

According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse's Monitoring the Future study, more teens, in 2014, more teens reported use of e-cigarettes than tobacco cigarettes or any other tobacco product.

E-cigarettes are battery-powered devices with a heating element, which produce an aerosol, or vapor, that users inhale. The vapor typically contains nicotine, although the specific contents of the vapor are proprietary and are not regulated.

The liquid that is vaporized in e-cigarettes comes in hundreds of flavors, and many experts speculate that the variety of flavors attracts more teenage users.
