Tobacco use, including smokeless tobacco and secondhand smoke, harms nearly every organ of the body, causing many diseases and affecting the health of smokers in general.
Quitting tobacco use has immediate as well as long-term benefits for you and your loved ones, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.*
