Quitting tobacco products and/or smoking improves health and reduces risk of heart disease, cancer, lung disease and other smoking-related illnesses.

Tobacco use remains the single largest preventable cause of death and disease in the U.S. Cigarette smoking kills more than 480,000 Americans each year, according to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
