QUICK QUIT FACTS:

Did you know?
  • Tobacco Users can be charged higher health insurance premiums because of consequential health problems
  • Cars owned by smokers have reduced sale values because smoking in a car can pollute it with residual SHS [secondhand smoke]
  • Smokers are more likely to have persistent oral health problems that are too expensive to fix, so they let them slide
Health Risks:
  • Smoking has been linked to 15 different types of cancer and can lead to a high risk of heart disease and stroke
  • Smoking leads to bad oral health
  • Autoimmune diseases have been linked to smoking, which cause the body to attack itself instead of viruses and other threats
