You might have heard that 1,300 people die from smoking every day. But what about the ones who haven’t died yet? Are they just lucky, happy and healthy? Nope. For every person who dies from a smoking-related disease, about 30 more people are suffering with at least one serious illness from smoking. Smoking is proven to cause cancer, heart disease, stroke, lung diseases, and diabetes. You can choose from one of these life-threatening diseases. Or can you choose not to smoke.
