With this pamphlet, readers learn that tobacco is the most deadly substance on Earth, killing more than 430,000 people a year in the U.S., and four million worldwide -- a number likely to increase to 10 million by 2030.
They are warned that nicotine, tobacco’s active ingredient, is as addictive as heroin. The addictive effects of nicotine on the brain are explained, and readers are warned that chewing tobacco and snuff are just as addictive as cigarettes.
The profound health risks of smoking are detailed, as are the effects on personal appearance and physical performance - in essence, debunking the advertising that portrays smoking as sophisticated and "cool." The hazards a smoker's habit poses to those around him in the form of secondhand smoke are also noted.
This pamphlet is also available in Spanish.
