Tobacco use is the leading cause of death and preventable disease in the United States. Each year, smoking kills more people than AIDS, alcohol, drug abuse, car crashes, murder, suicides and fire combined. Cancer, heart and lung disease are among the widely recognized effects of tobacco. Tobacco also causes premature aging, especially in women.

Tobacco use is also responsible for wrinkles, excessive facial hair and other skin problems, weak bones and early menopause in women. In men, smoking can cause impotency and may lead to the development of prostate cancer.
