3 This statistic came from Dr. Scott Sherman, M.D., M.P.H., former Smoking Cessation Coordinator, VA Greater Los Angeles Healthcare System, and Kim Hamlett-Berry, Ph.D., Director, Public Health National Prevention Program, Public Health Strategic Health Care Group (13B), Dept. of Veterans Affairs. They commented via e-mail that this figure might be skewed upward because a high percentage of the sick, poor veterans use the VA services compared with the population overall. They noted that it’s not known what percent of U.S. veterans are ill from the effects of cigarettes, and what percent actually die from smoking.
