Dangers of smoking

It’s no surprise that tobacco use leads to one of every five deaths in the United States. Tobacco kills more Americans than HIV/AIDS, alcohol, illegal drugs, car wrecks, suicide, and murder combined.

  9. I learned a lot I didn’t know. I’m going to memorize what it says and go up to people smoking outside and warn them what they’re doing to themselves.
