Vaping by U.S. teenagers fell dramatically this year, especially among middle schoolers, according to a federal report released Wednesday.

Experts think last year’s outbreak of vaping related illnesses and deaths may have scared off some kids, but they believe other factors contributed to the drop, including higher age limits and flavor bans.

In a national survey, just under 20% of high school students and 5% of middle school students said they were recent users of electronic cigarettes and other vaping products. That marks a big decline from a similar survey last year that found about 28% of high school students and 11% of middle school students recently vaped.

The survey suggests that the number of school kids who vape fell by 1.8 million in a year, from 5.4 million to 3.6 million, officials said.

  1. With schools switched to distance learning, the evil effect of pressure by stupid and nasty kids enrolled in the same class dropped dramatically. Same thing for bullying, which pressurized some people into eating disorders, depression and even suicide. What about underage alcohol abuse and binge drinking episodes that lead to etilic coma and possibly death?
