Tobacco smoking has been, and still is, a major cause for disease and death among human beings. It is responsible for every fifth death in America. The number of deaths caused collectively by drugs, HIV, motor vehicles accidents, alcohol, and firearm accidents, all combined, are still less as compared to the number of deaths due to tobacco smoking. No human organ is immune to the adverse impacts of tobacco smoke. It is indeed shocking that the menace of tobacco smoking is on the rise. According to 2012 data, nearly one billion people were daily smokers as against just 721million in 1980. Nearly 6 million deaths due to tobacco smoking are reported every year and this figure is rising every year. It is estimated that in the next 15 years tobacco smoking related deaths could touch the 8 million mark.
