Cigarette deathsOver the past couple of decades, Big Tobacco has come under fire for selling products that kill people. Now, leading cigarette producers like Philip Morris and Reynolds American are moving into the rapidly growing electronic cigarette business, touting the battery-powered nicotine inhalers as a safer alternative to traditional cigarettes.

1. Smoking-related health conditions are a leading cause of death in the United States, accounting for nearly one of every five deaths annually.

3. Secondhand smoke accounts for approximately 50,000 deaths in the United States every year.
