CMCH Synopsis: A few thousand French teens were surveyed about their cigarette and cell phone use. More girls reported that they smoked cigarettes, but more boys reported that they smoked more than 10 cigarettes a day. More girls than boys owned cell phones. There were a number of factors that seemed to influence both cell phone and cigarette use so that the two activities seem to go hand in hand. The authors describe cigarette and cell phone use as activities that go together as part of the same lifestyle. Center on Media and Child Health
