Smoking cigarettes tops the list as the most important preventable major risk factor of our No. 1 killer — heart and blood vessel disease. The long list of diseases and deaths due to smoking is frightening. Smoking also harms thousands of nonsmokers, including infants and children, who are exposed to second-hand cigarette smoke.
