Many teens smoke cigarettes to lose weight, study suggests

from HealthDay News via UPI

Many American teens may smoke to control or lose weight, a new study suggests. Researchers analyzed data from nearly 10,500 youngsters between the ages of 11 and 15. Among frequent smokers, 46 percent of girls and 30 percent of boys said weight control was one of the reasons they smoked. The study also revealed that smoking to lose weight was much more common among teens who felt they needed to drop weight. Girls who believed they were "much too fat" were nearly 225 percent more likely to smoke to lose weight than girls who felt their weight was about right. more
