Smoking remains the leading preventable cause of death and disease in the U.S. Although the percentage of adults who smoke is at an all-time low in the U.S., 34 million adults still smoke and therefore continue to be at risk of developing smoking-related diseases. This report makes it clear that one of the most important actions people can take to improve their health is to quit smoking. This is true regardless of their age or how long they’ve been smoking. In addition, the Surgeon General’s office provides a consumer guide with an overview of smoking cessation resources. Learn more and access the report, the report summary, and the consumer guide on the CDC website.
