Abstract

Smoking causes heart disease, weakens the immune system which promotes pulmonary infections, and accentuates cancer and other health related problems. The human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) also attacks and severely damages the immune system resulting, in most cases, in progression to the development of AIDS. In the United States one person dies every 11 minutes due to complications of the HIV infection. An estimated 5.8 million new HIV infections of adults and children occurred worldwide in 1997. This translates to about 16,000 new infections per day, with 90% of new infections in developing countries. 1.
