Finding out about smoking and health

I’ve now been writing this blog for over six months and have noticed that some questions keep coming up that have been covered on a previous post. The site allows you to search for things and has a listing by month of topics, but I thought it might be helpful to post a full up-to-date list, with links attached. Most of these posts also have links to additional sources of information on the internet.
