Study: Alabamians More Likely to Die From Smoking


A new study suggests that Alabama is one of 10 states where people most likely smoke themselves to death.

The study was created by health.com.

Alabama makes the list because of numbers of underage smokers across the state.

The centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported in 2011 that 23 percent of kids in high school smoked, giving Alabama one of the highest youth smoking rates in the United States.
