The Effects of Cigarette Smoking


What’s killing our country ? This year alone cigarettes

will kill 420,00 Americans, and how many more will suffer

from cancers, and circulatory and respiratory diseases.

These horrible illnesses were known to originate from

cigarettes for years, and recently nicotine, the main man

chemical additive in cigarettes, was declared addictive by

the Food and Drug Administration. This explains why smokers

continue to use cigarettes even though smokers are aware of

the constantly warned about health dangers in cigarettes.

Although smokers constitute the majority of the people who

suffer from cigarettes, they are not the only ones ailing

from cigarette smoke. The amount of second hand smoke

inhaled by the typical non smoker is equivalent to one

cigarette smoker per day. Even that amount of smoke can

cause damage to a persons heart. Smoking by pregnant women

causes allot of premature deaths and miscarriages. The only

way to terminate the suffering and loss of life brought upon

by cigarettes exists as a complete proscription on them.

Opponents to the banning of cigarettes argue though, that it

will create a profound impact on the economy. For years

cigarettes have been known to cause cancer, emphysema, and

other horrible illnesses. The death of 420,000 Americans

this year will be attributable to cigarettes. With all the

other causes of preventable deaths, accidents, alcohol,

illegal drugs, AIDS, suicide, transportation accidents,

fires, and guns, cigarettes still account for more

preventable deaths than those do combined.


The first thing people see, in the morning, when they

walk outside is the sky or the colored sun, Is the world

giving us the privilege of seeing the natural colors of the

sun through all layers of pollution within the air? Not only

are beautiful sights such as this hidden behind the

pollution this world causes everyday, but an increasing

diseases, infections and death occurs. What causes

pollution? What can we do to prevent it, and get rid of it?

Is it fair to the children of the future to have to suffer

the consequences that pollution causes? Why not take care of

the problem now? Factory and business owners have the

ability to prevent air pollution. Air pollution is the

presence in the atmosphere of harmful gases, liquids, or

solids. Air pollution, known as smoke pollution for many

years, resulted from coal combustion. Smog gas been a

problem in coal burning areas for several centuries. Smog

finally decreased when coal combustion was replaced by oil

and gas combustion. Air pollution is caused by a number of

different types of pollutants.
