A new study says teens exposed to cigarette ads may be more likely to become smokers themselves.
Researchers in Germany showed different ads - including ones for cigarettes -- to teens who had never smoked before.
After nine months, those who saw the most amount of tobacco advertisements were most likely to start smoking.
Researchers say the new findings support a total ban on tobacco ads.
