Description
Every day, at least 1,191 Americans die before their time. They die painful, lingering deaths that could have been prevented. Every three days, as many citizens die from their own smoking habit, or from exposure to second-hand smoke, as died in the Sept 11 tragedy. Each and every pack of cigarettes costs American taxpayers $40 in higher medical premiums, unavailability of health services, and other hidden financial drains. And every year, 925 out of every 1,000 smokers who try to quit on their own fail to stay smoke-free for a year-while hundreds of thousands of children become addicted to nicotine. Dr. Michael Rabinoff, a respected psychiatrist who holds two patents and has published repeatedly in the New England Journal of Medicine and other top-flight journals, shows the health and financial suicide we commit by allowing tobacco companies to continue doing business as usual-and, like any good doctor, provides a detailed prescription for what to do about it: simple actions you can take to save the lives of millions around the world.
