Since 1964, 29 surgeon generals have issued reports on the dangers of tobacco use, calling it the single most avoidable cause of disease, disability and death in the United States.

Despite these efforts to educate the public, the 2007 Smoker Misperceptions survey reveals there are significant differences between what smokers believe are the risks associated with smoking and the realities of tobacco-related disease and death.

Researchers from the American Legacy Foundation and GlaxoSmithKline Consumer Healthcare examined the responses of 900 adult men and women smokers in the U.S. who smoke cigarettes every day. The “average” respondent in the survey was 48 years old, started smoking at the age of 16 and currently smokes 20 cigarettes — one pack — per day.

Some of the data gathered from the survey indicates how ill-informed smokers are:

  • Sixty-six percent didn’t know that their chance of developing lung cancer was greater than that of a non-smoker.
  • Forty percent incorrectly believed that developing lung cancer depends primarily on genes, not on behaviors like smoking.
  • Eight percent didn’t know that smoking has been proven to cause blindness.
  • Ten percent didn’t know that smoking has been proven to cause hair loss.
  • Twenty-six percent didn’t know that smoking has been proven to cause impotence.
  • Thirty-three percent mistakenly thought that they could reverse the harmful effects of smoking by exercising and taking vitamins.
