Catron Courier - - Opinions & Editorial -

Ac­cord­ing to 2013 data from the US Depart­ment of Agri­cul­ture, which ad­min­is­ters the SNAP pro­gram, 40% of re­cip­i­ents are white, 25% are black, 10% are His­panic, 2% are Asian, and 1% are Na­tive Amer­i­can.

If you're look­ing for an­other rea­son to quit smok­ing, here’s a good one: Cig­a­rettes may be a sign of men­tal health prob­lems.

Con­trary to the per­cep­tion of cig­a­rettes as a stress re­liever, smok­ers are 70% more likely to suf­fer from anx­i­ety and de­pres­sion com­pared with non-smok­ers. What's more, a re­cent study found that long-term exsmok­ers had anx­i­ety and de­pres­sion pro­files sim­i­lar to par­tic­i­pants who had never smoked.
