Smoking reduces vitamin D contains the following

Two pathways are often proposed for how smoking decreases vitamin D:
   1) Smoking decreases Calcium. and Vitamin D is used up in replacing the Calcium
   2) Smoking injures the body, and vitamin D is used up in repairing the body
It appears that taking Vitamin D while smoking will:
   1) Decrease the incidence of the many health problems associated with smoking - even lung cancer
   2) Decrease the desire to smoke (take fewer smoking breaks?)
   3) Increase breathing capacity
Opinion: If unable to stop smoking,
  or a previous smoker,
     or getting 2nd hand smoke,
         please start Vitamin D and perhaps Omega-3 (decrease depression, inflamation)

Vitamin D should help people quit smoking   See bottom of page Smoking reduces vitamin D
   1) Reduces associated weight gain
   2) Reduces associated depression
A $1 tax on each cigarette would just pay for the additional costs imposed on society
240 Billion cigarettes sold a year in the US in 2016
Additional US costs due to smoking = $300 Billion health, productivity
