I believe that smoking is America’s greatest problem. There are three main reason’s why I believe this is true the first reason is that that are many dangerous health effects when it comes to smoking. The second reason is that smoking has effects and or symptoms on people who are pregnant. The third and final reason is that smoking does not only have effects on you it also has effects on others. Furthermore the hazardous ingredients in cigarettes can have many dangerous effects on your health and the health of others as well.
The first reason I believe smoking is America’s greatest problem is about the many dangerous health effects that smoking can and will have on you. Smoking can harm nearly every organ in your body and diminishes the overall health. The main health effects that smoking can have on you is that it is the leading cause of cancer and death from cancer. There are eight types of cancer that a person can or will encounter if they smoke this includes lung, mouth, throat, kidney, bladder, pancreas, stomach as well as cervix cancer. These are not the only types of cancer that smoking causes, there are many more. In addition smoking causes heart disease, strokes, and arotic aneurysm which is a balloon like bulge in an artery in the chest.
The second reason smoking is America’s greatest problem is the effects it has on pregnant women. Smoking during pregnancy affects you and the baby’s health before, during and even after the baby has been born. When smoking during pregnancy the baby is exposed to dangerous chemicals such as nicotine, carbon monoxide, and tar. These chemicals can lessen the amount of oxygen that the baby gets. Babies born to women who smoke during pregnancy are more likely to be born with birth defects such as cleft lip or palate, prematurely, at low-birth-weight, as well as underweight for the exact number of weeks of the pregnancy. Babies who are born prematurely or at a low birth-weight are at risk of other serious health problems, including life long disabilities(such as intellectual disabilities and learning problems), and in some cases even death. When you smoke around children, they are likely to get bronchitis, pneumonia, coughing and weezing, middle ear infections as well as asthma.
The last and final reason smoking is America’s greatest problem is the effect it not only has on you but the effects it has on others as well. Smoking doesn’t only effect you, it will have effects on the lives of others as well, including your loved ones. The smoke that you blow out is the smoke that goes into another person’s lungs, this would be an example of secondhand smoking. Secondhand smoking is when the smoke is inhaled unintentionally by nonsmokers, and can effect their health. Secondhand smoking causes more than 1,000 deaths in the United States.
The hazardous ingredients in cigarettes can have many dangerous effects on your health and the health of others as well. Smoking can cause many dangerous, lifelong effects, that might not ever go away. Smoking can have effects on pregnant women and her child, adults, teens, and even young children who don’t even smoke, although some people may not smoke, it can still have dangerous effects on that person just by being around someone who does smoke. Smoking causes cancer, death and lifelong symptoms. No one should have to experience the many dangerous effects that smoking can have, no one.
