Transcript of Should cigarettes be banned?

Should cigarettes be illegal? Pros and cons of cigarette use. But... Sources Cancer Damage done to your lungs The Cost of cigarettes per year Heart Damage The E Cigarette Future Outcome Pros of cigarettes Governments throughout the world make huge profits from taxes on cigarettes. This provides funds for schools, hospitals and other public amenities. Outlawing cigarettes would be just as disastrous as the prohibition of other drugs. Almost 20% of all deaths from heart disease in the U.S. are related directly to cigarette smoking. Smoking does more damage to you then just your health. It also does a number on your wallet. A pack of cigarettes now cost more than 5 bucks a pack. What causes cancer in cigarettes?
Cigarettes they create thousands of jobs, reduce stress, and the tax on them are so high they provide funds for hospitals and schools...But they can burn a hole in your wallet and is the highest leading killer in the United States. Cigarettes should be banned in restaurants and hospitals and any public area. Which as of they are now... I believe the E Cigarette is a better solution than regular cigarettes. The smoke is water vapor and can't cause second hand smoking and you could use them in public places. It also saves you more money than going out and buying a pack every two to three days. So should cigarettes be illegal? My answer is no. http://health.howstuffworks.com/diseases-conditions/cancer/facts/carcinogens-cause-cancer.htm Jobs The Tobacco company also employes tens of thousands of people throughout the world. People would still smoke, as they still use other drugs that are prohibited, from marijuana to cocaine. We would have smokers in dark alleys , afraid of being caught for the "illegal substance." Cops would go through the hassle to arrest cigarette smokers. Our prisons, already overcrowding, would rise to a unprecedented level with "addicts" and casual smokers. (Newman) Cons of cigarettes Coronary heart disease occurs if plague builds up in the heart arteries. Over time CHD can lead to chest pain, heart attacks, heart failures, and death. Smoking interrupts the blood supply to the heart. This process is called Angina, it doesn't cause death, but constricts the heart. When Kirk Dandy decided to quit smoking he made a list of benefits he'd gain starting with the 3,650 he would save per year. If all other drugs are illegal then shouldn't we outlaw the leading killer? Jennifer Boltin an educator at North Park University, admits that she gets sick more frequently and her illness lasts longer, because she is a smoker. "I end up missing more days at work, and yet I still smoke" says Boltin. Which is losing more money by buying more packs and getting less hours at work. Carcinogens it literally means "cancer causing."
One carcinogen in cigarettes is Tar, it contains over 4,000 chemicals and 60 of those chemicals are deadly.
List of carcinogens.
Ammonia: Used as a cleaning agent and fertilizes crops.
Acetylene: Used to fuel welding torches.
Cyanide: Poisonous to brain and heart. Carcinogens cause genetic mutations that foster abnormal cell growth and tumors. Hence the more you smoke the more likely you are to get any type of cancer. http://www.health.com/health/condition-article/0,,20209268,00.html http://www.webmd.com/smoking-cessation/quit-smoking-heart http://www.cnn.com/2009/CRIME/07/30/newman.tobacco.ban/index.html http://www.smokelessdelite.com/blog/electronic-cigarettes-costs-smokeless-cigarettes-cost/ My thoughts
