Number of teens exposed to e-cigarette ads quickly rises
The number of teens exposed to e-cigarette ads has exploded.
A new study published in the Journal Pediatrics says youth exposure to e-cigarette ads increased by 256 percent from 2011 to 2013, meaning 24 million U.S. kids saw the ads.
Ads for traditional cigarettes have been banned from TV since 1971 but e-cigs are fair game.
The FDA is considering banning the sale of e-cigs to minors, but marketing and advertising restrictions are currently not part of the proposal.
