messages for the individual smoker
Messages for the individual smoker
  • Those killed in middle age lose many years
  • Stopping smoking works
    • Even in early middle age, those who stop (before they have lung cancer or some other fatal disease) avoid most of their risk of being killed by tobacco
    • Stopping before middle age works even better

• The risk is big: about half are killed
