Dangers of tobacco
Transcript of Dangers of tobacco
Dr. Joel Nitzkin, Chair, Tobacco Control Task Force, American Association of Public Health Physicians
"Its easier to stay out than to get out."
"Smokers smoke because they are addicted to nicotine in cigarettes, but it is the smoke, not the nicotine, which causes a long list of diseases, including lung cancer, heart disease, stroke and emphysema."
New York State Health Commissioner, Richard Daines, M.D.
“Nicotine is the addictive ingredient in cigarettes that keeps smokers hooked, but it's not the ingredient that harms smokers' health," emphasized Ursula Bauer, Ph.D., M.P.H, director of the state's Tobacco Control Program. "With safe nicotine products, smokers can give up the smoke without giving up the nicotine.”
