Boys Smoking On the Rise Again

Smoking is on the rise again amongst 15 year old boys after dropping off for several years.

Can, The Swedish Council for Information on Alcohol and Other Drugs reports that between the years 1999 and 2004 the numbers of boys smoking fell from 30 to 18 percent, but now the trend has been reversed.

Around 30 percent of girls at the same age still smoke.
