Ending teen smoking
A recent survey found that only 9% of teens in the United States smoke cigarettes. Thats down from 23% in 2000. Its less than the number in 2013. While this is good news for Americas overall health， tobacco use is still a problem.
Cigarettes have been linked to cancer， lung disease， diabetes （糖尿病）， heart conditions， and high blood pressure. Though they know the health effects， teenagers still smoke. According to the American Lung Association， every day almost 3，900 children under 18 years of age try their first cigarette， and more than 950 of them will become daily smokers. If the trend continues to be so， 5.8 million children alive today will die as a result of smoking.
The Truth Campaign is working to end teenage smoking all together. Their latest series （系列） uses social media to spread awareness about the dangers of smoking. “If we all join forces — smokers and non-smokers — we can end smoking once and for all，” the campaign website states. The campaign encourages teens not to judge， but instead to learn the facts. “Were not here to criticize your choices， or tell you not to smoke. Were here to arm everyone — smokers and non-smokers — with the tools to make a change，” they say.
