Data from the Youth Risk Behavior Surveillance System that included 9,655 high-school students showed the likelihood of cigarette smoking was about four times greater among smokeless tobacco users than those who did not use smokeless tobacco products. Teens who used smokeless tobacco were more likely to be white, male, and have engaged in binge drinking and sexual intercourse. The findings appear in the Journal of the American Dental Association.
