Stop Smoking to Prolong Your Life
Smoking damages every tissue and organ in your body. You know it, we know it, and even children know it. But still, people continue smoking. That is how addictive tobacco is.
Cigarette smoking is the most important preventable cause of premature death in the United States. It accounts for more than 440,000 deaths a year (20% of all deaths).
Smokers have a higher risk of developing several chronic disorders; including atherosclerosis, 14 different types of cancer and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (emphysema).
