    Smoking does harm to your health.

    Do the following two sentences sound as natural to native speakers?

    Smoking does harm to your health.
    Smoking is harmful to your health.

    Thank you in advance.

    Both are OK but I think the first one is more formal. You'd probably see it in a leaflet or banner advising against smoking.
