Tobacco Use Is Hazardous to Your Life
 
Did you realize . . .
  • An individual who smokes 1.5 packs/day, may be spending at least $3,300/year!  
  • One who chews a can of tobacco per day, could be spending $1100/year on a sure path to oral cancer. 
  • For the smoker, the risk of developing Peripheral Artery Disease - blocked leg arteries - increases as we live longer . . . potentially leading to an amputation and reduced quality of life. 
  • Smokers have a greater risk of developing lung cancer today than did smokers 50 years ago, due to changes in cigarette composition.

But, Aren't eCigarettes Safer?
The rationale for smoking a leaf cigarette or chewing tobacco leaf and inhaling (vaping) an e-cigarette are the same . . . To get a "hit" of a drug - in this case it is Nicotine.  All lethal!  Perhaps vaping is even more hazardous to your health because with the nicotine are other poisonous chemicals, often undisclosed to the user.
