Tobacco is highly addictive and dangerous. Besides lung cancer, smoking can also cause heart disease, stroke, cataracts, and, in pregnant women who smoke, it’s linked to sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS). One out of five Americans dies of tobacco-related disease, so it’s important to find ways to prevent tobacco use and help people quit.
