Global Youth Tobacco Surveillance, 2000–2007

January 25, 2008 / Vol. 57 / No. SS01

MMWR Introduction

According to the MMWR Surveillance Summary, "Global Youth Tobacco Surveillance, 2000–2007," findings suggest that previous estimates of a doubling of deaths from smoking (from 5 million per year to approximately 10 million per year by 2020) might be an underestimate because of the high prevalence of smoking among young girls compared with adult females, the high susceptibility of smoking among never smokers, and high levels of exposure to secondhand smoke and pro-tobacco indirect advertising.
