"Why is America Still Smoking?"

Today Dr. Ralph Sacco and others joined U.S. Surgeon General Regina Benjamin for a congressional briefing on the Tobacco epidemic – “Why is America Still Smoking?” The event was in response to the Surgeon General’s recently issued report that details the biological damage tobacco smoke wreaks on the body and how smoking causes cardiovascular disease and cancer, among other conditions.

Almost all of us are aware of the danger effects of smoking and what it can do to the smoker's body and lifestyle. In fact, even after the massive advertisement and campaigns to create awareness on the negative impact of smoking, still many smokers find themselves impossible to quit.

The two most serious conditions that are likely to develop when smoking is not stopped soon are emphysema and cancer.
The emphysema diseases can causes major complications in the lungs that can inhibit improper breathing, ventilation and also asthma attacks on smokers. Cancer has also been linked to smoking by way of mouth cancer, lung cancer, esophagus cancer, pancreatic cancer and kidney bladder.

Some pretty designs alright. Doing the painting yourselves is more fun but a good place for ideas for more design is this site of wahooart.com, that I use to help with my wall decorations.
You can browse for a painting like this The tree, by 20th century Czech artist, Frantisek Kupka, for example, http://EN.WahooArt.com/A55A04/w.nsf/OPRA/BRUE-8LHUQV , that can be ordered on line and delivered to you.
