Number of teens exposed to e-cigarettes explodes

The number of teens exposed to electronic cigarette ads has exploded, increasing the likelihood that they'll one day try smoking.
That's according to a new study published in the Journal Pediatrics.
Ads for traditional cigarettes have been banned from TV since 1971.
But e-cigarettes are fair game.
Researchers found ads for the devices were shown during popular network shows like the 'Bachelor,' 'Big Brother' and 'Survivor.'
The FDA is considering banning the sale of ecigs to minors.
But marketing and advertising restrictions are currently not part of the proposal.
