Abstract

Although millions of Americans have kicked the habit, the effects of cigarette smoking likely will be around for a long time. What was once regarded as a glamorous habit is now recognized as a health threat and an economic burden. But what headway has been made in the reduction of related morbidity and mortality? The authors of this article review the current epidemiologic data on smoking-related diseases and make an indisputable case for smoking cessation.
