Surgeon General’s Report on Smoking and Health

On December 10, 2014, the CDC posted a video on its YouTube channel about smoking. The CDC titled it, “Worse Than We Thought.”  Under the video, they wrote:

The 1964, the Surgeon General’s Report on Smoking and Health found that smoking causes lung cancer. Today, we know the impact of smoking on health and well-being is far worse. Worse Than We Thought” explores the staggering health effects of smoking that are outlined in this year’s 50th anniversary Surgeon General’s Report. 20 million people have died from smoking in the last half century, including 2.5 million nonsmokers who died from diseases caused by exposure to secondhand smoke.

Here is the video:
