The verdict on smoking is clear – it is harmful, it kills. Yet, even now, around 6.5 trillion cigarette sticks are sold every year – that’s 18 billion cigarettes every day! And, though the consumption pattern is tilted more towards low-income and middle-income countries, the number of smokers in the United States hovers around 34 million, with around 16 million Americans living with smoking-related diseases!
Worse, cigarette smoking causes 480,000 deaths annually. This infographic highlights the state-wise percentage of smokers and smoking-attributed cancer deaths. This is one list where you don’t want to be in top-10!
