Overall, cigarette smoking among U.S. adults has declined. Yet, nearly 38 million American adults smoked cigarettes in 2016, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Cigarette smoking remains the leading preventable cause of disease and death in the United States. It kills more than 480,000 Americans each year. For every person who dies this year from smoking, there are over 30 Americans who continue to live with a smoking-related disease.
