Cigarettes: A product that kills two out of three of its users

by Volker Weber

'Smoking Kills' is more than just a catchy PSA or smoking cessation campaign slogan - it’s verifiable fact. Since the mid-1900s, study after study has generated compelling evidence linking smoking to increased mortality rates. Arguably, the most influential of these is the 1956 publication of smoking data on the 'British Doctors Study', which presented compelling evidence that over half of smokers would eventually die due to smoking-related complications. A new study published in BMC Medicine asserts that this mortality rate may even be as high as 66 percent, meaning that two out of three smokers will eventually die from conditions associated with their smoking.
