Public Health England’s new campaign is raising awareness of the harm smoking does to the whole body. Adverts show a hand-rolled cigarette with rotting flesh instead of tobacco, highlight how smoking has a degenerative effect on the whole body, similar to the effects of rot.
Smoking still remains the biggest cause of premature death in England, accounting for almost 80,000 deaths a year with half of all long-term smokers dying prematurely from a smoking related disease.
