April 1960
America;4/2/1960, Vol. 103 Issue 1, p9
The article focuses on the health hazards of cigarette smoking. It notes on the evidence that links the relationship of heavy cigarette smoking and lung cancer, strengthened by the tobacco involvement. Moreover, the involvement strengthened the indication of tobacco as the greatest killer through coronary artery disease. Furthermore, the problem lies in the governance for moderate use. However, it is impossible to stop the indulgence of chemical use unless their is individual conscience.
