【Abstract】 Purpose: In order to promote smoking cessation, we made a database of death causes on smokers including ce-lebrities. Methods: Original information on each death was collected through major news papers from April 2003 together with internet information. Data verification was done by SM to examine each celebrity’s articles and photo-graphs. Each birth and death date was checked with encyclopaedias and Wikipedia. We delivered such infor-mation with special consideration of readers’ and audience’s background. Results: A total of 516 deaths (birth year:1804-1971) including 35 women were edited by July 2010. Of these, 81 men and 10 women were not Asian race. The youngest deaths were 2 men at the age of 31, and the oldest 100 years old man. As for cause of deaths, 54 men and women were unknown at the moment. We edited another 181 people who died of tobacco-related diseases but their smoking status was not verified. Some 82% of men and 89% of women died of three major causes. Leading cause of deaths for both men and women was can-cer, followed by cardiovascular second and respiratory third. Conclusion: Deaths of celebrities are shocking and influential to promote tobacco cessation in communities. News papers are expected to edit smoking status and cause of deaths for celebrities. Famous people who stop smoking should be followed in terms of showing healthier life course.
