Study: Number of teens exposed to e-cig ads skyrocketing story image
(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - The number of teens exposed to e-cigarette ads has exploded.

A study published in the journal Pediatrics found the ads are increasing the likelihood that teens will one day try smoking.

Ads for traditional cigarettes have been banned from TV since 1971, but e-cigs are fair game.

Researchers found youth exposure to e-cigarette ads increased by 256 percent from 2011 to 2013, exposing them to 24 million U.S. kids.

The FDA is considering banning the sale of e-cigs to minors.

Currently, marketing and advertising restrictions are not part of the proposal, however.
