Tobacco is the single greatest cause of disease and premature death in America today. It is responsible for more than 430,000 deaths each year. Nearly 20% of adult Americans currently smoke, and 3,000 children and adolescents become regular users of tobacco every day. The societal costs of tobacco-related death and disease approach 100 billion dollars each year.
