6 million people die each year from tobacco products globally
as we say in public health,
“Smoking is the leading cause of preventable death. Worldwide, tobacco use causes nearly 6 million deaths per year, and current trends show that tobacco use will cause more than 8 million deaths annually by 2030.”
i lived in lexington kentucky from 8th-12th grades and still consider it my home because that’s where i grew up
kentucky is where i became a man
i did research in tobacco genetics at the university of kentucky for almost two years
that’s where i learned what pcr was. western blot. etcetera.
in kentucky, basketball and tobacco are king. there is little else. tobacco means survival.
