Tobacco use is associated with some 241,000 deaths from acute respiratory infections annually. Adult smokers are more vulnerable to pneumonia, influenza, and TB, and their infections are generally more severe.
Smoking in the household can impair the lung function of children. If a parent smokes, a child is approximately twice as likely to develop an acute respiratory infection severe enough to require hospitalization.
The burden of disease associated with tobacco will shift as smoking declines in developed countries and continues to increase in the developing world.
