New report on tobacco use describes how it damages

The surgeon general's new report on tobacco use 'validates earlier findings, expands and strengthens the science base, and describes in great detail the multiple ways that tobacco smoke damages every organ in the body, resulting in disease and death.' It also found tobacco smoke contains more than 7,000 chemicals and compounds, including hundreds that are toxic and at least 70 that cause cancer. (U.S. Department of Health and Human Services)
