Can you cite this?

Certainly, refer to Wikipedia:

Smoking is one of the leading causes of preventable death globally. In the United States about 500,000 deaths per year are attributed to smoking-related diseases and a recent study estimated that as much as 1/3 of China's male population will have significantly shortened life-spans due to smoking.

Now add to that the fact that Altria has been aggressively attacking any evidence of harmful effects, playing down harmful effects, and has been seducing teenagers to smoke for decades. Plus, the active "product placement" in movies for decades. I don't know exactly how large their worldwide market share for cigarettes is, but it's likely something like 90%, too.

Stunning: According to WHO's data, smoking makes up 1/2 of all preventable deaths in the USA (18.1% out of 36% total), about 10 times as much as traffic accidents.

As for Kraft Foods, just go to your local supermarket and pull any of their products that is labelled "health", "fit", or "low fat" or any other deceptive product (say, Philadelphia) out of the shelf. Look at the list of ingredients (which, too, is kept as deceptive as possible).
Millions of people buy (and eat) these harmful products every day under false premise. Why do you think the US americans are so fat and suffer from diabetes? It's not the burgers and the fries. It's the deceptive health food which is even worse.
