Smoking and chewing tobacco are increasingly responsible for the growing number of cases of heart disease, cancer and stroke—the main causes of death among American Indians. Even more alarming is that commercial tobacco products kill more people in the United States than AIDS, alcohol, accidents, fires, illicit drugs, murders, and suicides.
