Study: Hookah use up among teens, especially white males with money
from Los Angeles Times
Nearly 1 in 5 American high school seniors has used a hookah at least once in the preceding year, and the risk was greater for students from higher-income families, according to a study published recently in the journal Pediatrics. Hookahs, a type of water pipe, have become increasingly popular in recent years in the U.S. and abroad, numerous studies have reported. Experts believe this is due in part to the perception that they are less dangerous than cigarettes and other forms of smoking.
