Why people should not smoke. We all know smoking is a big part of today’s society. One in every three people smoke. While there are many arguments against smoking, the following three are the most important: it pollutes the environment, it is costly, and it is injurious to our health. Cigarette smoke is a very harmful form of pollution, not only to the smoker but everyone around them.
“Atherosclerosis (buildup of fatty substances in the arteries) is a chief contributor to the high number of deaths from smoking” (Smoking & Cardiovascular Disease). Smoking also causes bronchitis, which is the inflammation of the mucous membrane in the bronchial tubes. Lung cancer and many other kind of cancers are produced by smoking tobacco. Additionally, tobacco is the main cause of many health problems. In conclusion, smoking tobacco is injurious to health.
A Public Health White Paper (2004) and a Health Act bill (2006) issued by the government indicated that “All enclosed public places and workplaces had to become smokefree from 1st July 2007 in England”. The smoking ban was announced by the Secretary of State for Health, Ms Hewitt (2006) who had lobbied solidly within the Parliament for an absolute ban in public places according to the BBC news (2005). Donaldson (2009), a chief medical officer stated that the main purpose of the legislation was to ensure a healthier environment for workers and citizens from the damaging effects of passive smoking (also known as second-hand smoke). Subsequently, the ban provoked controversy, with many addressing arguments for and against a course of action related to it. Arguments in favour of the ban were primarily put forward by health organisations, for instance, Action on Smoking and Health (ASH) - a public health charity who argued that smokefree public and work places improves community’s health issues that passive smoking would harm (2006).
Secondhand smoke not only increases the risk of cancer in nonsmokers, but it raises nonsmokers cost of extra medical care as well as causing other health complications. Secondhand smoke (SHS) is a common danger to people in public areas as well as in their homes/cars. Mainstream smoke is the product the smoker inhales and exhales into the environment. Sidestream smoke, however, is way more toxic and can be inhaled by anyone in that particular area. This is because sidestream smoke comes from the burning end of the cigarette which has not been filtered.
Young people who have just started smoking are easier to be explained to give up. Smoking in public places is a social problem. Non-smokers are finding the ways to breathe some fresh air and smokers say that it will be infringement of their rights if smoking is prohibited. What is the solution to this problem? What damage does smoking do to health?
Tobacco kills more people through heart disease and stroke than it does through cancer. There are several different health risks involved when you smoke. There are different types of cancers involved. The different cancers involved when smoking cigarettes are lung, upper respiratory tract, larynx, mouth, throat, stomach, pancreas, kidney, bladder, and cervix. Individuals may develop lung disease.
Even though there are designated places now on campus to smoke it really defeats the purpose because people don’t abide by the specific rules that should be followed so that everyone can be satisfied in some way. People throw cigarette butts on the ground instead of in the trash to try and keep out campus looking clean. Certain people might think otherwise because having a smoke-free campus would jeopardize some people’s health. Smoking can be addictive but can help people in some positive ways for that moment. The designated smoke areas sounded like a good idea at first so that smokers would have specific places to smoke under certain rules.
