After all, the Big Four tobacco makers will pay only 1 percent of the damages (at most) directly; the rest will be passed on to smokers through higher prices. Since many states are already figuring the settlement money into their budgets, this puts them in the odd position of depending on the continued health of the tobacco industry for their roads, schools, and hospitals. Punishing the industry, in other words, doesn't necessarily address the root of the problem - reducing demand for cigarettes. And that won't go down until we all face the fact that smoking is once again cool. In the 1980s, scarcely any teenagers smoked.
So many people quit smoking each year, it is so ridiculous to think that tobacco products are addicting argues Richard DeGrandpre (39). The facts about tobacco and tobacco products have been shaded by the government and government agencies to make smoking less acceptable and more inconvenient to smokers and tobacco users Sullum argues (55). My opponents firmly believe that there are no risks if a person starts smoking. As you will see, I will show extenuating facts that disprove my opponents views on tobacco products. My opponent states that smoking is not dangerous, however, I intend to prove that smoking is dangerous not just to smokers, but to everyone as well.
As a result of this many Germans change their money into Swiss Francs. So far Switzerland has done quite well by not taking place in all events available. One reason why they are better off is that they didn't take place neither in World War I nor in World war II and therefore didn't have to rebuild everything. Some people expect that in a Unified Europe the standard of living in the richer countries will decrease while the people in poorer countries will fare better. One professor of mine once said: “Somebody must pay for the European Integration.
Argument Essay Outline I. Introduction After the shocking massacre in Sandy Hook Elementary school, Connecticut, people nationwide had been focused on the debate over gun control. Statistics from “Poll: Support for tighter Gun Checks Ebbs” published by The Wall Street Journal shows that over half of the people support stricter gun controls. President Obama has recently announced twenty three mentioned major executions in his speech: “Now is the Time” to prevent more gun violence. Despite the concern of the people, articles such as “One Year after Newtown, Congress Still Stalled on Gun Control” from the CBS news shows that the Congress had been reluctant on passing such regulations.
Smoking is on the rise with adults and teenagers. Nearly twenty-one percent of adults smoke cigarettes, and twenty percent of teenagers smoke in the United States of America. Smoking has many negative effects, but also a few positive effects. However, the positive effects are outweighed by the negative effects. In June 19, 1986, anti-smoking activists were trying to pass a bill in New York that would restrict smoking in restaurants and other public areas, the first major action ever taken by New York to prohibit smoking in some way.
1. Summarize the arguments in favor of the ban on tobacco advertising in India Those in favor of the ban on tobacco advertising in India were the Ayes. According to the Ayes, the ban was common because it had happened before internationally in other countries like France, Finland, and Norway. Their first argument was that tobacco was the cause of death. For example, According to the World Health Organization (WHO), tobacco accounted for over 3 million deaths and rose to 4.023 million deaths in 1990 and 1998 respectively.
Anti-smokers usually include these unaffected businesses in their studies. Smoking is less common among the wealthy, so bars and restaurants catering to an upscale crowd aren't nearly as affected as places with a working-class clientele.
While this is an understandable concern, the health of our communities citizens is much more important than the loss of a handful of customers for businesses. Recently, the House of Representatives approved a bill which stated that smoking should be banned in the private clubs and bars of Vermont. The bill was approved by the House and sent to the Senate for further approval. Ultimately, it seems that the bill was accepted in the House in part because of an emotional plea made by Rep. William Aswad, and also due to the argument that it covered a serious health issue. Rep. Aswad told the group that when his wife had died six year, three months, and fourteen days earlier that the official reported cause of death was simply cigarettes.
It was proved from the “International Union against Cancer” research in 1997, that lack of advertisement of cigarettes drove to a 37% reduce of cigarettes consumption, in the countries of Norway, Finland, Canada and New Zealand. It is encouraging also the fact that total ban and not just some measures in advertising, was more effective. World Bank report says that in 100 countries, where there was a total ban in advertising, there was also
Nine out of ten deaths from lung cancer are caused by smoking.

We are encouraged to cut down on junk food and it is too be much less available and alcohol should be soon too but why not cigarettes. The NHS spends billions each year on diseases caused by smoking. But if our country cant come to face facts and do this grand deed of banning smoking in public places then the least they can do is educate our children and gear them away from smoking as this is where the risk begins.
