Together We Can Save Countless Lives

Smoking has been the number-one cause of preventable death and disease in this country for decades. If we could eliminate tobacco use entirely, the results would be staggering:

  • We would prevent nearly half a million premature deaths each year.
  • We would save the lives of 5.6 million children alive today who would die prematurely because of smoking.
  • 58 million Americans still exposed to secondhand smoke would breathe more freely.
  • We would prevent one out of three cancer deaths in this country.
