Report: Adult smoking drops nearly 40% in Howard County

December 21, 2023

Howard County is out with a report card that’s published every two years, showing some good signs about the declining use of tobacco products. The county’s report showed an almost 40% reduction in smoking among adults over that time period. The study also looked at other health indicators, like cancer. While the rate of newly diagnosed cases are stable, the county says cancer deaths are lower, although cancer and heart diseases are still the two most common causes of death in general.
