Cigarettes has been a growing problem since the 1960s and it is still an on going problem in today's society. Cigarettes have been known to be the #1 cause of lung cancer and even more serious health problems, we pay more attention to the dangers of marijuana and alcohol but cigarettes are responsible for killing 480,000 deaths per year and nearly 42,000 deaths from secondhand smoke, that averages about 1,300 deaths per day!

Cigarette smoking nearly harms every organ of the body and is the leading cause of death in the U.S. more women die from lung cancer than breast cancer per year. On average a U.S. smoker is put at a higher risk for Cardiovascular disease than a non-smoker, even people who smoke less than 5 cigarettes a day are at risk of catching cardiovascular disease.

More than 10 times as many U.S. citizens have died prematurely from cigarette smoking than have died in all the wars fought by the United States during it's history, if smoking continues at the current rate among youth in this country 5.6 million of today's Americans younger than the age of 18 will die early from a smoking-related disease, that's about 1 of every 13 Americans aged 17 years or younger alive today. Quitting tobacco together could cause a great amount of change in the U.S. and just one year after quitting tobacco use the risk for a heart attack is reduced sharply!

Let's fight together and make tobacco illegal and help reduce all diseases and deaths it has caused in our Country today!
