Cigarettes
cause more than
480,000 deaths
per
year
in the United States alone.
The total # of
deaths
is
equivalent
to
HIV
,
illegal

drug use
,
alcohol abuse
,
motor vehicle
, and
gun
related
incidents

combined
.
Assist current addicts with their addiction by using a healthy alternative to cigarette consumption
Eliminate majority to all deaths caused by cigarettes
The first use of tobacco consumption was by people of the pre-Columbian Americas. Naive American used the plant mostly for ceremonial and medicinal purposes. Christopher Columbus after coming back from the America's, brought with him a small amount of tobacco seeds to Europe. Diplomat Jean Nicot from France (which nicotine is named after) started to make to product popular in Europe. Virginia is where the first successful commercial crop was refined back in 1612.
The negative effects were not known until 1952, in which Reader's Digest printed "Cancer by the Carton," which discusses the dangers of tobacco consumption. Congress in 1965 passed Federal Cigarette and Advertising Act, which provides general warnings on all cigarette cartons. President Clinton in 1995 announced the FDA's campaign to regulate tobacco, along with both the advertising and sales aimed at minors.
The best way to stop audiences from cigarette
smoking
is to
ban
the product. Although this method would take much public support, it is the most efficient method to
stopping
both the current and
future generations
from
smoking
. By
disarming
the
availability
factor, both
users
and
non-users
would
no
t be able to face the factor of
temptation
, and may thus find
alternate

activities
other than smoking. If this were to go into effect, an effective
measure
ment may be looking at the number of
cancer
related
cases
in comparison to when there where available, and interpreting cases of
asthma
in
children
as parents tend to smoke and influence their children's actions. Also the
demand
and
supply
for
healthier foods
may also be an important factor.
Addicts
also
spend
much of their
money
on cigarettes, so with the
product
being
banned
, one may analyzed where this
additional financial means
is being spent.
Electronic cigarettes
can readily
assist
current addicts into
quitting
. E-cigarettes although providing a similar feeling to a regular cigarette, does have it's
downfalls
. There are some cases in which the
cartridges
in the cigarette began to l
eak
, which causes severe
toxic exposure
.
Nicotine patches
release nicotine through the skin and into the body. It significantly
reduces
the
urge to smoke
, easy to use, an alternative method instead of oral medication, and has been
efficient
in
managing withdrawal symptoms
. The patches however may
cause irritation
to the
skin
, and at times may be
responsible
to adding a
stronger addiction
to
nicotine
.
May
cause cancer
is virtually
any organ
in the body.
Increase
risk of
stroke
and
heart disease

2-4 times

higher
, and
increase
risk of
lung cancer
is
25 times

higher
than that of a
non-smoker.
The substance in the cigarette called
Nicotine
, is what makes the cigarette
addictive
. Nicotine once inhaled, is absorbed into the bloodstream within the first 10 seconds. The result is a quick buzz of relaxation, stress relief, and energy. Like caffeine, once the buzz leaves it makes the
user
tired,
restless
and in need for the buzz again.
Tobacco companies
have
added
more
addictive chemicals
which makes it almost impossible for the user to stop. When
attempting
to
quit
, individuals may experience feelings of
anxiety
,
headaches
,
hunger,

irritability,
and stronger
cravings
for sources of
nicotine
.
The overall outcome of
banning

cigarettes
may not be accurately known until it is actually done. The
positives
although
out number
the
negatives
, and can only
help our society as a whole.
