These are my goals in life that I plan to pursue. Cigarette smoking is very dangerous and leads to a negative impact on public health. The negative impact of smoking on public health is that smoking leads to disease and harms nearly every organ of your body. Smoking can lead to a lot of continuing complications that are in the body, as well as a number of long term effects on your body’s systems. While some smoking increases people’s risks of a variety of problems for several years, some of the bodily effects are immediate.
DIVERSE FACTORS AND ADVERSE EFFECTS OF CIGARETTE SMOKING IN A STATE UNIVERSITY INTRODUCTION In our world today, cigarette smoking is very common to all specially teenagers and minors. Cigarette has the addictive properties that can cause harmful and injurious effects like diseases and early death. But, are they minding those harmful effects of cigarette smoking? Aside from that, it can also affect the personality and appearance of the smokers (Harry, 2015). Tobacco contains nicotine, a highly addictive drug that makes it difficult for the smokers to kick the habit.
Cigarette smoking should be prohibited as it brings more harm than benefits to not only smokers but also non smokers especially secondhand smokers. To conclude this, cigarette should be prohibited and not to be protected at any costs. The health hazards is one of the main reason why cigarette smoking is awfully bad. The most harmful thing about a cigarette is the ingredients contain in the cigarette such as nicotine, tar, ammonia, butane, methane and many more harmful ingredients all stuffed inside the so called stress relief stick. Besides all these harmful ingredients, cigarette also should be prohibited for all the incurable diseases such as lung cancer, throat cancer, liver cancer, pneumonia, bronchitis and many more fatal sickness.
I believe that smoking cigarettes in public places should be illegal for many reasons such as the health and safety dangers of others and even myself. Firstly those who believe that smoking should be banned say that cigarettes can affect smokers deeply in the long run. “Over 50,000 studies of the health effects of tobacco in dozens of countries have detailed its dangers. Worldwide, tobacco use causes about 90% of lung cancer deaths, 30% of all cancers, 20-25% of coronary heart diseases and stroke deaths, and more than 80% of chronic bronchitis and emphysema”. (Jordan 1).
Today, cigarettes are highly taxed and provide a lot of money for an ever-growing economy. They are smoked by millions, across the country and are one of the most prolific addictions in the world. The revenue and pleasure that smoking cigarettes causes is entirely outweighed by the negative effects they cause. Smoking cigarettes is a dangerous and deadly addiction. They provide no benefits physically or mentally.
Everyone knows that smoking has all sorts of negative impacts on one’s health. Nevertheless, many people ignore the risk and decide to go on smoking. It causes changes in the smoker’s body and the way they act. It is caused by an addiction to nicotine. The changes in the way they act developed over time as they bought cigarettes and consume them.
