A recent study conducted by Truth Initiative, formerly the American Legacy Foundation, and published in the Journal of Environmental and Public Health found that 3 out of 10 young adults (ages 18-34) reported concurrent "dual use," or using cigarettes and another tobacco product in the past thirty days. These other tobacco products include hookah, bidis, kreteks, and cigars and little cigars.
