Advice and advocacy save lives.


Tobacco use remains the leading cause of preventable premature death in the United States and, increasingly, around the world. This paper describes the critical role physicians can play in decreasing tobacco use by providing smoking cessation advice and engaging in antismoking advocacy. By helping patients who smoke to quit and working to diminish the economic and political power of the tobacco industry, physicians and other health professionals can help "make smoking history."
