You can reduce your risk of cardiovascular disease:


Reduce Your Risk - Stop Smoking

Choose to be a non-smoker and to avoid second-hand smoke.
Smokers are 2 to 3 times more likely to develop heart disease than non-smokers. Smoking and smokeless tobacco are responsible for more deaths than any other health risk. Quitting smoking will reduce your risk of heart disease and other tobacco related diseases such as cancer.
