UNDATED (KDAL) - WIsconsin state health officials have reported a 26 percent drop in high school students who smoke and a 36 percent fewer middle school students who light up.  The figures come from the 2012 Youth Tobacco Survey that included 40 high schools and 42 middle schools around the state.  Still, the survey found that 13.1 percent of high school students and 2.5 percent of middle school students smoke.  The state health officer says smoking is the number one cause of preventable disease in Wisconsin and we need to reach out to kids and help them avoid a lifetime of addiction and possible premature death.
