Creative Tobacco Infographic


By Drew Hendricks, National Geographic
Today over one billion people around the world are smokers—a fact that transcends race, spans the spectrum of age and social status and penetrates all corners of culture.
No matter how much it is romanticized on television or through media, the truth falls out in the statistics: tobacco kills 20 times more people than murder does; cigarettes contain almost 5,000 different chemicals, some of which come out of vehicle exhaust pipes; 1 in every 5 pregnant women smokes and 1,000 kids start smoking every day, with 80 percent of them continuing into adulthood. 
The facts are very real, and this infographic explores why—if you’re a smoker—you might want to consider nursing your lungs back to where they were meant to be.
