Around 50,000 people per year die from secondhand smoke. If the production and sale of cigarettes alone were banned, then hundreds of thousands of lives would be prolonged and saved; approximately 450,000 lives per year (Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids). Smoking is the number one cause of death due to lung cancer, emphysema, and other life-threatening diseases (ALA).

Smoking isn’t only bad for the smoker but for the people around smokers.
