How Are Cigarettes Affecting Black Quality of Life?

Cigarettes are killing the Black community one pull at a time. Compared to white Americans, African-Americans are at an increased risk for lung cancer even though they smoke about the same amount. Diseases from smoking kill more Black Americans each year than car crashes, AIDS, murders, and drug and alcohol abuse combined.
