Indicator:  Adults who reported that they do not smoke cigarettes

What it measures:  Percent of adults who reported that they do not currently smoke cigarettes

Why it is important:  Tobacco use is the leading cause of preventable disease and death, both statewide and nationally. In fact, tobacco use kills more people than HIV, alcohol, auto accidents, illegal drugs, murders, and suicides combined.

Smoking harms nearly every organ of the body and is linked to numerous diseases, including cancer (in all parts of the body), cardiovascular disease, respiratory disease, diabetes mellitus, dental disease, eye disease, and liver cirrhosis, as well as low bone density, hip fractures, accidents, peptic ulcers, adverse reproductive outcomes, and childhood neurobehavioral disorders.

Michigan currently ranks 41st among all states in the percentage of adults who smoke cigarettes.
