Hookahs growing in popularity among high school seniors, study finds

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Hookahs are growing in popularity among high school seniors.

A new study in the Journal of Pediatrics says nearly one out of five have used the water pipe device sometime within the last year. The study also found that living in a big city, having highly educated parents and having a higher-income job increases the odds of hookah use.

The CDC says hookah smoking has many of the same health risks as cigarette smoking.
