A new study reveals the drop in smoking among American youth over the last decade is not because of e-cigarettes.

In fact, the combined use of e-cigs and traditional cigarettes in 2014 was higher than cigarette smoking along in 2009.

Researchers say many e-cigarettes may attract minors who would not have otherwise tried tobacco products.
