Goal 1: Promote Human Health

what about smoking?

We must keep reminding ourselves that tobacco is the first and foremost causal, avoidable risk factor for human disease, and perhaps it has been neglected too often in the past in many medical venues. , Therefore, the NHLBI should welcome initiatives on key tobacco-related translational issues, and on the efficacy and the effectiveness of any smoking reduction and/or avoidance interventions, as well as on any other risk factors to help define it at the population and individual levels. Well passed the so-called cigarette-century, tobacco is yet causally linked to an increasing number of diseases.
