CDC Fast Facts




Tobacco use leads to disease and disability.
  • Smoking causes cancer, heart disease, stroke, and lung diseases (including emphysema, bronchitis, and chronic airway obstruction).
  • For every person who dies from a smoking-related disease, 20 more people suffer with at least one serious illness from smoking. Tobacco use is the leading preventable cause of death.
  • Worldwide, tobacco use causes more than 5 million deaths per year, and current trends show that tobacco use will cause more than 8 million deaths annually by 2030.
  • In the United States, tobacco use is responsible for about one in five deaths annually (i.e., about 443,000 deaths per year, and an estimated 49,000 of these smoking-related deaths are the result of secondhand smoke exposure).
  • On average, smokers die 13 to 14 years earlier than nonsmokers. The cigarette industry spends billions each year on advertising and promotions.
  • $9.94 billion total spent in 2008
  • $27 million spent a day in 2008 Tobacco use costs the United States billions of dollars each year.
  • Cigarette smoking costs more than $193 billion (i.e., $97 billion in lost productivity plus $96 billion in health care expenditures).
  • Secondhand smoke costs more than $10 billion (i.e., health care expenditures, morbidity, and mortality). State spending on tobacco control does not meet CDC-recommended levels.
  • Collectively, states have billions of dollars available to them—from tobacco excise taxes and tobacco industry legal settlements—for preventing and controlling tobacco use. States currently use a very small percentage of these funds for tobacco control programs.
  • In 2011, states will collect $25.3 billion from tobacco taxes and legal settlements, but states are spending only 2% of the $25.3 billion on tobacco control programs.
  • Investing only about 15% (i.e., $3.7 billion) of the $25.3 billion would fund every state tobacco control program at CDC-recommended levels. More Facts Here.
