This might not come as a surprise to zoomer parents of teenagers.  A new U.S. study suggests teenagers are smoking less, drinking less and fighting less.

But, the research shows they’re texting behind the wheel and spending a lot of time on video games and computers.

Most forms of drug use, weapons use and risky sex have been going down since the government started doing the survey every two years in 1991.

The results come from a study of 13,000 U.S. high school students last spring.
