Doctors warn about the dangers of smoking
Every year more than 20,000 adults die from smoking attributable illnesses here in the Lone Star State.
Deaths attributed to smoking surpass those from AIDS, alcohol, cocaine and even car accidents, and with "World No Tobacco Day", just around the corner on May 31st, local doctors, like Dr. Reynaldo Godines, want the public to know the dangers of smoking saying “everyone who is smoking tobacco products it shortens their quality of life, it also reduces their quality of life considerably."
Woman smokers are more likely to die of stroke and heart attack.
It's important to note most insurance providers cover tobacco cessation and behavioral intervention.
