About

Overview

Tobacco Information for Teens, Second Edition offers updated information about the health consequences associated with smoking and other forms of tobacco use. It explains some of the cultural influences that can make tobacco use seem attractive, and it discusses various methods by which nicotine is consumed. A section on cancers describes the organs most commonly affected, and a section on other health concerns discusses tobacco-related diseases that impact the heart, lungs, circulatory system, eyes, and sex organs. For teens who want to stop smoking - or help someone else quit - facts about smoking cessation are presented along with tips for dealing with the effects of nicotine withdrawal. The book concludes with directories of resources for more information.
