The Legacy for Health Shows the Horrifying Effects of Smoking

It is surprising that even with all the knowledge in today's society how far we still have to go to eliminate smoking. This infographic was created by Butler Brothers for the American tobacco control organization Legacy for Health. The organization's goal is to help provide people with longer and healthier lives through its prevention and cessation efforts. And with facts on its website like, "more than 45 million Americans smoke, and up to one half of all long-term smokers will eventually die from their addiction," it is no wonder these infographics were created to help spread its message.

The ten different infographics and their video counterparts show the addictive and seductive power of smoking and why it needs to stop. From the enormous cost of smoking financially and physically to how much popular culture influences kids to smoke, the facts are both scary and enlightening.
