Diseases caused by smoking kill more than 430,000 people in the US each year. In fact, smoking is directly responsible for the majority of lung cancer cases (87 percent), emphysema cases, and chronic bronchitis cases. Even with anti-smoking campaigns and medical health disclaimers in place, many people continue to smoke or start to smoke every year. According to the American Cancer Society, 90 percent of new smokers are children and teenagers, in many cases, replacing the smokers who quit or died prematurely from a smoking-related disease.
I'm not sure about the stats for india, but im sure theyre equally bad, if not worse.
At least Think about quitting.
Another statistic :
Cigarette smoking is one of the top ten causes of death,
more than car accidents and homicides.
The statistics are 430,000 to 200,000.
Mynahs walk 40% of the time. I have calculated after much observation.
