Story Behind the Curve

According to the CDC tobacco is the leading cause of preventable death. Worldwide, tobacco use causes more than 7 million deaths per year, including 480,000 deaths per year in the United States. There are also over 16 million Americans living with a disease caused by smoking. The CDC also reports that about 68% of current smokers want to quit smoking. The Bear River Health Department provides two smoking cessation classes, 1 for youth and 1 for adults. The youth program is an indicated prevention program with the goal of helping youth quit before they become addicted. The adult class aids adults in quitting smoking. Reducing the number of youth that become addicted and increasing the number of adults that quit will reduce the cost to society of smoking, and help individuals live a longer healthier life.
