American's will try and give up their smokes for the day and hope that they can continue to say no to smoking.
A survey by the American Cancer Society reveals that 44% of the 45 million Americans, who smoke have attempted to quit for at least one day in the past year. Other findings:
-The smoke from one cigarette remains in the room for up to five hours after smoking
- 30 minutes of daily second-hand smoke exposure causes heart damage similar to that of a habitual smoker. People, who are exposed to daily second-hand smoke have a 30% higher death and disease rate than non-smokers.
- second-hand smoke is the third-leading cause of preventable death in the U.S., behind only smoking and alcohol and drug abuse.
- second-hand smoke contains more than 4,000 chemicals, with more than 50 of them being known carcinogens.
Good luck to all who try to do this today.
