Swedish Girls Smoke Early

Girls start smoking earlier in Sweden than in other European countries. A new study, where 5000 women from Ireland, the Czech Republic, France, Italy and Sweden took part, shows that despite being aware of the risks with tobacco, there were twice as many 13- 14 year olds in Sweden who smoked, compared to the other countries. According to the study, the main reason why Swedish girls start smoking at such a young age is peer pressure.
