As an ex-smoker, the topic of cigarettes is very important to me. As the new smoking atlas of the German Cancer Research Institute (DKFZ) writes, “121,000 people in Germany die from the consequences of smoking.” That is 13.5% of the annual deaths in Germany. In addition, there is more smoking in the north than in the south.
It is actually easy to quit smoking. You just have to want to stop treating your lungs with over 7000 chemical compounds, 70 of which are proven to be carcinogenic.
Smoking is like a slow suicide that you also pay for.
