Smoking Deaths in the U.S.

I just read an article from Reuters with this headline: "Smoking causes half a million deaths each year in the U.S., killing slightly more men than women, new statistics show." Worldwide, the number of smoking deaths is between 5 & 6 million. That is a lot of preventable deaths. If you want to read the complete article from Reuters, here is the link: Half a million die from smoking yearly in U.S.
