Smoking less: Nearly 44 million U.S. adults, or 19%, still smoke, but those who do are lighting up fewer cigarettes in a day, continuing a trend seen in recent years, says the latest report from the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Another positive sign: Smoking among young adults, ages 18 to 24, has dropped from 24% to 19% since 2005. (HealthDay)
