How many people die a year from Tobacco
Tobacco smoking can lead to lung cancer, chronic bronchitis, and emphysema. It can also increase the chance of heart disease which can lead to a stroke or heart attack.
Chemicals in Tobacco
Some of the horrible chemicals include lead, tar, carbon monoxide, Nitric Acid, Methyl Ethyl Ketone, and more horrible things.
