According to the CDC, cigarette smoking causes more than 480,000 deaths annually in the United States, out of which 42,000 deaths result from secondhand smoking. The average life expectancy of nonsmokers is 10 years higher than smokers. Furthermore, the CDC warns that if American teenagers continue to smoke cigarette at the current rate, 5.6 million teenagers could die at an early age from diseases caused by cigarette smoking.
