Transcript of Tobacco Prezi

Times up, Tobacco Shawn Clark
Juan Flores Tobacco is a green, leafy plant that is grown in warm climates. After it is picked, it is dried, ground up, and used in different ways. It can be smoked in a cigarette, pipe, or cigar. It can be chewed (called smokeless tobacco or chewing tobacco) or sniffed through the nose (called snuff). Leaves from the tobacco plant contain nicotine. Nicotine is a "stimulant" drug. Nicotine is one of the more than 4,000 chemicals in cigarettes and its smoke. It is the chemical that makes tobacco addictive or habit forming. Once we smoke, chew, or sniff tobacco, nicotine goes into our bloodstream, and our body wants more. The nicotine in tobacco makes it a drug. This means that when we use tobacco, it changes our body in some way. Because nicotine is a stimulant, it speeds up the nervous system, so we feel like we have more energy. It also makes the heart beat faster and raises blood pressure. Cigarettes include... Health Effects Smoking can cause
the following cancers:
Lung cancer
Acute myeloid leukemia
Bladder cancer
Cancer of the cervix
Cancer of the esophagus
Kidney cancer
Cancer of the larynx
Cancer of the oral cavity
Pancreatic cancer
Cancer of the pharynx
Stomach cancer
Cervical cancer Smoking can cause the follow diseases:
Lung diseases like:
Chronic Airway Obstruction
Coronary heart disease
Peripheral vascular disease
Periodontal disease
Cardiovascular disease Lung Cancer If nobody ever smoked, only .5% of people would develop lung cancer.
About 90% of lung cancer is due to smoking.
One in five heavy smokers and one in ten moderate smokers will die of lung cancer.
When a person quits smoking it takes 15 years before their risk of lung cancer reduces to the same as a non-smoker.
smoking increases the risk of men developing lung cancer by 23 times, and 13 times in women.
Lung cancer is one of the major cancers caused by smoking. Periodontal disease Periodontal disease causes bad breath, swollen gums, and teeth to fall out. Cardiovascular disease Cardiovascular disease hardens the arteries when the cholesterol and fats accumulate in the arteries, and is more likely to cause blood clots. Blood clots Blood clots can be fatal and can cause sudden death in smokers.
Coronary thrombosis is when there is a blood clot in the arteries leading to the heart, 30% are caused by smoking.
Cerebral thrombosis is when blood clots in the arteries leading to the brain, this can lead to a stroke or paralysis.
If there is damage to the brain's blood supply it can cause dementia.
If the kidney arteries are blocked that can result in high blood pressure or kidney failure.
Blockage to the legs can lead to amputation and gangrene.
Smokers develop coronary thrombosis 10 years earlier than non-smokers. Smoker's Eyes smokers eyes can look bloodshot and be itchy due to the sensitivity in the eyes and the smoke of the cigarettes.
Heavy smokers can get macular degeneration leading to loss of eyesight.
Smoker's risk of getting cataracts increases. Smokers also make up 9 out of 10 heart bypasses. Appearance and other effects of smoking.. Yellowish shade on teeth and fingers Continuous cough Reduction in taste and smell Weaker immune system High chances of getting regular colds and flu Negative effects on pregnant women and their baby Smoking affects skin to look older Croaky voice addiction having no money left smoking while pregnant can cause problems in the infant that is born.
smoking can cause:
preterm delivery
Low birth weight
Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) Not so fun facts Every cigarette shortens a smoker's life by 11 minutes.Smokers are more likely to get cancer than non-smokers.smoking worsens asthma and counteracts asthma medications.smoking can cause ulcers from the acidic taste in the mouth.compared to non-smokers, smokers take 25% more sick days.A single cigarette reduces the blood supply to the smoker's skin for an hour.A smoker's risk of getting mouth cancer is four times greater than a non-smoker. Secondhand smoke

There is no risk-free level of exposure for secondhand smoke.Secondhand smoke is the smoke that burns at the end of the cigarette and the smoke that smokers exhale.There are over 7,000 chemicals produced in secondhand smoke.There are 70 chemicals in cigarette smoke that can cause cancer.Secondhand smoking causes 46,000 premature deaths from heart disease per year in the U.S. in non-smokers.Non-smokers that are exposed to secondhand smoke have an increased risk of developing heart disease by 25 to 30%. Secondhand smoke causes 3,400 lung cancer deaths in the U.S. in non-smokers per year.Even the most brief contact of secondhand smoke causes the cancer process to begin its motion.The longer a person is exposed to secondhand smoke the higher their chances are of developing lung cancer.Exposure to secondhand smoke damages the lining of blood vessels and causes blood platelets to get stickier; this can result in a deadly heart attack.Secondhand smoke can also increase the risk of having a heart attack by interfering with the normal function of the heart, blood, and vascular systems. Child effects

Infants exposed to secondhand smoke after birth have an increased risk of SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome)Secondhand smoke can affect the way infants breathes from all the chemicals affecting the brain.Older children whose parents smoke tend to get sick more often.They can also get bronchitis and pneumonia.They also tend to get more ear infections and have more fluid in their ears and often need drainage tubes placed in their ears.Wheezing and coughing are also common.Secondhand smoke can cause an asthma attack that can potentially be deadly for a child that already has asthma. Quitting Facts: On average it takes 4 to 5 attempts to successfully quit smoking
