New report on smoking from the Surgeon General

The US Surgeon General has released a new report titled How Tobacco Smoke Causes Disease: The Biology and Behavioral Basis for Smoking-Attributable Disease, which finds that even occasional smoking or secondhand smoke causes immediate damage to the body that can lead to serious illness or death. The report is available at http://www.surgeongeneral.gov/library/tobaccosmoke/index.html
