Quit Smoking: Infographic about Smoking in the US
Smoking is a habit that destroys a smoker from the inside out, leading to deadly results. Therefore, when Emily Turner from Online Nursing Programs reached out to us with an interesting (and very alarming) infographic that highlights the effects of smoking, we decided to share it with our readers. Scroll down to read disturbing statistics about the reality behind this seemingly innocent habit. For instance, did you know that smoking is the leading cause of preventable death in the US. Yet, 1000 American youths (under the age of 18), start smoking every single day?
It would be interesting to share an Indian graphic on India's reality with respect to tobacco and health as well. Do alert us if you come across such a graphic. Meanwhile, kudos to the designers and researchers who put the above graphic together to help increase awareness about the ill-effects of smoking in the United States.
