More than 1 in 4 teens who gave birth were ages 15-17 according to CDC’s latest issue of ‪#‎VitalSigns‬. Teen pregnancy is a real problem that contributes to and perpetuates the cycle of poverty.

The best thing you can do for your health is to quit smoking or to never start. The 50th Anniversary Surgeon General’s Report describes how together we can make the next generation tobacco-free and BE THE HEALTHIEST NATION IN ONE GENERATION. http://1.usa.gov/1g3eM21 #NPHW #PHNerd

True dat. I will tell you after not smoking for many many years then becoming stressed out one day, I decided to do the unthinkable I had a cigarette, rationalizing that it would be okay if I had just one. Let me tell you brother if you manage to stop don't ever think that you could have one.

The number of births to teen mothers has decreased over the past 20 years, but more than 300,000 15-to 19-year olds gave birth in 2012. In the latest ‪#‎VitalSigns‬ video, CDC Director Dr. Tom Frieden discusses what doctors, nurses, and other healthcare providers can do to address the problem of teen pregnancy. http://youtu.be/3YaU2NH-II0

Too much fame from MTV's Teen Mom, so why bother with birth control.
