Purpose of ReviewEvery day in the USA, approximately 4000 adolescents begin smoking and the adolescent brain is particularly susceptible to nicotine addiction. We present current pediatric trends on tobacco use and exposures, various new products used by adolescents, the adverse biological and behavioral effects of tobacco use and exposures, and tobacco control strategies to eliminate tobacco-related illnesses and deaths in the pediatric population.Recent FindingsTwelve—20% of women continue to… Expand
How secondhand smoke exposure affects tobacco use and smoking susceptibility of adolescents: Sex and school differences

Frequency–risk relationships between second-hand smoke exposure and respiratory symptoms among adolescents: a cross-sectional study in South China
TLDR
It is suggested that setting-specific second-hand smoke (SHS) exposure is associated with a significant, dose-dependent increase in risk of respiratory symptoms and monotonic frequency–risk relationships are observed. Expand
Prevalence and Associated Lifestyle Factors of Suboptimal Health Status among Chinese Children Using a Multi-Level Model
TLDR
Examination of the prevalence of suboptimal health status (SHS) among Chinese children using a large-scale population survey sample and the relationships between SHS and lifestyle factors clarified, found unhealthy lifestyles were closely associated with SHS. Expand

TLDR
An overview on the long-term cardiovascular effects of risk factors in children and youth is provided to outline various lines of evidence for the efficacy of primordial and primary prevention in young people, as well as recommendations for population- and individual-level strategies and evidence-based interventions. Expand
