(PDF Download) Designed for Addiction: How the Tobacco Industry Has Made Cigarettes More Addictive, More Attractive to Kids and Even More Deadly


Tobacco use remains the number one cause of preventable death and disease in the United States. Smoking kills 480,000 Americans each year, sickens millions more and costs the nation at least $289 billion annually in health care bills and economic losses. The latest Surgeon General’s report found that cigarettes today pose an even greater risk of disease than the cigarettes sold when the first Surgeon General’s report was issued in 1964. The report concludes: “The evidence is sufficient to infer that the relative risk of dying from cigarette smoking has increased over the last 50 years in men and women in the United States.”

Thank you to the scientists who provided valuable input to this report: Dr. David Burns, Dr. Eric Donny, Dr. Dorothy Hatsukami, Dr. Stephen Hecht and Dr. Jack Henningfield.
