Smoking & Disease in Smokers - Philip Morris USA

There is no safe cigarette. Philip Morris USA agrees with the overwhelming medical and scientific consensus that cigarette smoking causes lung cancer, heart disease, emphysema and other serious diseases in smokers. Smokers are far more likely to develop such serious diseases than non-smokers.

There is no safe cigarette. Philip Morris USA agrees with the overwhelming medical and scientific consensus that cigarette smoking causes lung cancer, heart disease, emphysema and other serious diseases in smokers. Smokers are far more likely to develop such serious diseases than non-smokers.

These have been, and continue to be, the messages of the U.S. Surgeon General and public health authorities worldwide. Smokers and potential smokers should be guided by these messages when deciding whether or not to smoke.

You can obtain more information directly from these public health organizations about cigarette smoking and disease in smokers: International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), the World Health Organization (WHO), U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the American Cancer Society, and the U.S. Surgeon General.


Our support of a consistent public health message

We support a single, consistent public health message on the role of cigarette smoking in the development of disease in smokers, and on smoking and addiction.
