Tobacco use is the leading cause of preventable illness and death in the United States.  It causes many different cancers as well as chronic lung diseases such as emphysema and bronchitis, heart disease, pregnancy-related problems, and many other serious health problems (http://betobaccofree.hhs.gov /).

The Marquette County Health Department offers a variety of printed tobacco cessation information (including no smoking signs for businesses). The Health Department also serves as the regulating licensing agency for smoking complaints in Marquette County bars, restaurants, and workplaces.
