WASHINGTON– According to a study published by the Federal Drug Administration and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, middle and high school students are still using flavored e-cigarettes at a “worrying level.”

The study surveyed millions of middle and high school students across the United States. She found that current vaping use in the past 30 days included 14.1% of high school students and 3.3% of middle school students.

Almost 85% of them used flavored e-cigarettes and more than half used disposable e-cigarettes.

“This study demonstrates that our nation’s youth continue to be seduced and addicted to a growing variety of e-cigarette brands that deliver flavored nicotine,” said Deirdre Lawrence Kittner. Kittner is director of the CDC’s Office on Smoking and Health.

Of adolescents currently using EC, 27.6% have used it daily and 42.3% have used it for 20 or more of the past 30 days.

E-cigarette company Juul had its products taken off store shelves by the FDA earlier this year and agreed to pay Juul $438.5 million in a class action lawsuit.
