Smoking leads to disease and disability and harms nearly every organ of the body. Smoking is the leading cause of preventable death. The tobacco industry spends billions of dollars each year on cigarette advertising and promotions.
Tobacco kills more people in our state than AIDS, alcohol, auto accidents, drug overdoses, murders, and suicides combined. The use of cigarettes and other tobacco products is the single, most preventable cause of disease, disability and death, both in Michigan and across the United States.
For the first time in decades, in 2014 overall nicotine and tobacco use increased among U.S. high school students. This is almost entirely due to an explosion in teen use of e-cigarettes, hookahs and vaping. E-cigarettes have become the perfect addiction machine enticing a new generation of young people to lifelong nicotine dependence.
