Report Card: Fewer Now Smoking

Only 18% of U.S. adults now identify themselves as smokers according to the National Health Interview Survey 2012. This is down a full percentage point since last year, and down from almost 25% in 1997. Smoking related deaths still take a big toll, but if smoking prevalence continues to drop, even this will improve over time.

PositiveTip: Choose not to smoke or use any tobacco products. It is the healthiest choice!
