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.

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.
