Effects of smoking on your health|Nicotine dependence

From the middle of the 20th century, it became generally known that smoking is seriously harmful to health. The health risks from smoking have been proved beyond doubt through epidemiological as well as biochemical and molecular biological investigations. Tobacco smoke contains a few thousand substances many of which are carcinogenic.

In 1997, the Federal Constitutional Court determined that smoking is harmful to health. Furthermore, it was determined by the supreme court that, according to present medical knowledge, it is certain that smoking causes cancer as well as coronary artery disease- and atherosclerosis and therefore leads to deadly diseases and health risks for non-smokers. Tobacco products are stimulants whose intended use regularly causes damage to health (Federal Constitutional Court, Order of 22 January, 1997, ref. 2 BvR 1915/91, in: BVerfGE 95, 173).
