[ARCHIVED] National Prevention Week

Tobacco use is the leading preventable death in New York State and the rest of the United States. Each day, nearly 3,300 people under 18 start smoking (1). Many will suffer long-term health consequences, and one-third of youth and young adults who keep smoking will die prematurely from a tobacco-related disease (2).

For more information on how to prevent tobacco use, please visit: Surgeon General’s Report- Preventing Tobacco Use Among Youth and Young Adults- www.cdc.gov/tobacco/data_statistics/sgr/2012/consumer_booklet/pdfs/consumer.pdf
