~Cigarette smoking and exposure to tobacco smoke cause more than 440,000 premature deaths each year in the United States.
Of these premature deaths, about 40 percent are from cancer, 35 percent are from heart disease and stroke, and 25 percent are from lung disease.
~Smoking is the leading cause of premature, preventable death in this country.
