  • Description:
    Tobacco use is the leading cause of preventable disease, disability, and death in the United States. Every day, about 2,300 young people under age 18 try their rst cigarette. Each year, nearly half a million American adults die prematurely of smoking or exposure to secondhand smoke. Another 16 million

    live with a serious illness caused by smoking.

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is at the forefront of the nation’s efforts to reduce deaths and prevent chronic diseases that result from tobacco use. CDC and its partners promote tobacco control interventions, including smoke-free environments, programs to help tobacco users quit, actions to prevent young people from starting to use tobacco, and steps to eliminate tobacco-related health disparities in different population groups.
