Gay and Bisexual Men's Health
Studies over the past decade suggest that gay men smoke at higher rates than men in the general U.S. population. This puts gay and bisexual men at high risk for smoking-related illness as smoking harms nearly every organ of the body. Smoking is associated with higher rates of cancer, heart disease, stroke, and chronic obstructive lung diseases. Quitting smoking has immediate as well as long-term benefits for you and your loved ones.
