Dangers Of Secondhand Smoking “Secondhand smoke is the third leading cause of preventative death in the United States. For every eight smokers that smoking kills they take one non-smoker with them” -Adrienne Herron Some people think secondhand smoking isn’t bad for other people around them. It is, secondhand smoking kills the non-smokers and children around them. Second Hand smoking can kill up to any living thing that is around the person that is burning a tobacco product. Even animals.
Should cigarettes be illegal? Should smoking be illegal? Yes, you may ask yourself why? Simply because it results in a large number of death’s (the most in the uk to be precise).Most of us aren’t aware of the side effects from smoking cigarettes, which is very worrying to me. According to the NHS, its estimated that over 120,000 deaths are caused by smoking annually.
Is smoking still a problem? Sadly, it is a major problem that is at the danger of getting worse with the introduction of e-cigarettes.. Although scientists haven't had the time to study the health risks from e-smoking they are sure they are not as harmless as what e-cigarette adds want us to believe. Smoking is actually illegal for those who are younger then 18 since this can lead to health problems early in life. Since smoking carries more disadvantages than advantages I believe that smoking should be avoided
some children and people who do not smoke can also cause health problem because people who smoke passes by them and non-smoker get infected. In the US there are about forty-six thousand non-smoking people die from secondhand smoke exposure. People who smoke cigarette had lung cancer more than non-smokers. The cigarette contains seven thousand chemical and seventy chemical can cause lung cancer. Some small children are also addicted to smoke they smoke every day and at the age of 15 - 18 they get a heart attack.
When cigarette butts are thrown into environments with plants, it can cause,for example, a small bush to catch on fire, therefore, spreading into a large wildfire. The American Burn Association states “ 900 people die from fires caused by cigarettes and can injure a lot of people and animals. Drivers on the freeway can throw their cigarette butts out the window leading to a fire and ruining so much of the environment, and homes.” The evidence helps to demonstrate some of the leading causes of not disposing cigarettes properly, also the many unfortunate events that can happen it not done right. The events are real and actually happen all the time, affecting many aspects of life. Smokers poor actions can most likely hurt others and their families by littering their cigarette in incorrect places.
At high doses radiation kills cells, damages organs, or gives a rapid death. Do you really want to be the one responsible for this? For this vital reasons nuclear bombs should be banned in every place. The making is horribly unethical and starts the death from that point to people who don't deserve it. The testing of these bombs as said above only slowly destroy more people and countries.
Smoking should be illegal. According to the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, “Each day, more than 3,200 people under 18 years smoke their first cigarette, and approximately 2,100 youth and young adults become daily smokers”. Smoking is a danger to health, highly addictive, dangerous for the environment and unnecessarily expensive. Smoking is dangerous to health for both smokers and nonsmokers. Smoking is harmful to the body as it causes many types of diseases including cancer and asthma to many parts of the body, including the lungs, throat, stomach and, the mouth.
Background Smoking is a deadly habit affecting the health of many globally, nationally, and locally. Smoking has immense negative health repercussions, reducing life expectancy by at least ten years compared to nonsmokers (CDC, 2016). Cigarette smoke contains thousands of chemicals, including tars, carcinogens, metals, and other toxins that cause harm. The carcinogens inhaled, are then freely transferred from the lungs to the bloodstream, which may cause various cancers (Peterken, 2014). Additionally, many constitutes of cigarette smoke is absorbed into the saliva and swallowed, which leads to various negative topical effects on the gastric mucosa.
Smoking contains about fifty carcinogen or carcinogenic and dozens of other toxic and harmful substances; therefore a lot of developed countries have made laws that prohibits smoking in public places, which obliges everyone to respect these decisions. Smoking cigarettes should not be banned in public areas because some people may think it is against personal freedom. However, smoking is highly injurious to our health as it causes lung diseases in children who inhale the smoke and is very harmful to pregnant ladies, there is no reason why smoking should not be banned in public places. The primary reason is
According to the latest analysis done by the University of Washington in 2012, the statistics showed that 6.25 trillion people worldwide smoked cigarettes. However, some people will wonder, what does cigarette smoking actually mean? Cigarette smoking is the process of inhaling more than a thousand kinds of chemicals or smoke constituents such as Tar, Nicotine and Carbon Monoxide (CO) into the lungs and all these chemicals will cause harm to the entire body system such as the central nervous system, respiratory system, cardiovascular system as well as digestive system, and in the process, jeopardise one’s health. (“The effects on smoking on the body”, 2014). As time pass, all these chemicals will gradually cause cancer especially lung cancer
When burned, they create more than 7,000 chemicals. At least 69 of these chemicals are known to cause cancer, and many are poisonous. These cancerous chemicals in cigarettes are equally as dangerous as drugs forbidden by law. Cigarettes should be illegalized globally to extend the life expectancy of inhabitants across the world, provide
“In just the past twenty years, air pollution from coal plants have shortened the lives of more than half a million Americans.” (Jeff Goddell, 2006). Mining kills even those uninvolved in the production of it. There are a vast amount of environmental sanctions and safety standards in mines, yet most do not follow them correctly. Companies must pay for all of this, yet they want to be able to make profit.
The Black Plague The disease that wiped out thirds of the population, destroying civilizations. The age after the seven-year famine, that had already wiped out ten percent of the population, would lead straight into the period of death and mourning, called The Black Plague. This period started in the late 1348s and ended in estimated years. In the 14th century, humans didn’t have the science and medicine that we have today. The fact of the matter was in that time if you or your loved ones obtained the virus, you would be dead in around a week.
Everyone these days are trying to sue the Tobacco company, but how is it their fault when it was that person’s own choice to put the cigarette in their mouth. If something is legal, does not mean it is the right thing to do. If individuals started to sue tobacco companies, then everyone will think it is okay and want to sue alcohol companies because it could cause drunk driving. For example, the trash and plastic bag companies are polluting the country but nobody holds them responsible. No one should sue a company that did not force them to start smoking.
Dropping this bomb caused thousands of innocent lives to be lost and even more so people to be injured but live. As said in the text,” it killed about 160000 people and 80% of the cities buildings…(nagasaki) the death toll there was less but still over 100000”. The problem was America was already kicking a horse that was down. Japan had already been almost defeated and the bomb was just a huge overkill. Even admiral Ernest King argued, “ if we had been willing to wait... the naval blockade would have starved the japanese into submission through lack of oil, rice.. and other essential materials.” It seemed to me that the bomb was a rash and hasty decision.
