Nicotine

By Brad Hicks

One of the worst killers in the U.S.

  • Tobacco kills more than 430,000 Americans each year – more than alcohol, cocaine, heroin, homicide, suicide, car accidents, fire and AIDS combined!


Second hand smoke

  • Smoking doesn't just kill smokers. In fact, about 50,000 non-smoking Americans die every year as a result of breathing other people’s cigarette smoke (second hand smoke).
