Tobacco: The Most Preventable Cause of Death

This volume of the Health Education Monograph Series focuses on several current issues related to tobacco use. Tobacco use, whether it is cigarette, pipe or cigar smoking or smokeless products is perhaps the most preventable cause of illness and death. As such, tobacco use issues are relevant to all health care professionals that work in a variety of settings and specializations. This edition offers original articles that examine multiple aspects of tobacco use that will help health educators stay connected with the ever changing landscape of manufactured products, epidemiological use trends, risk factors, and approaches to prevention.
