Living Smoke-Free

Share

It is a well-known fact that smoking is bad for your health. Smoking harms nearly every organ of the body and causes many diseases and cancers. In fact, smoking is the most preventable cause of disease and death in the United States.

​But did you know that smoking is also bad for those around you too? Secondhand smoke exposure is just as harmful as the act of smoking. Individuals exposed to secondhand smoke are at an increased risk of heart disease, certain cancers, and respiratory problems. Babies and children exposed to secondhand smoke have an increased risk of respiratory infections, ear infections, and severe or frequent asthma attacks.

Adopting a smoke-free lifestyle is the only way to protect your loved ones from the harmful effects of smoking.
