The alarming increase in the smoking ability in a source of worry to the government of America and the media has played a very significant role in creating awareness on the habit that people cultivate and which has been proving to be having a deadly long term effect on their body. Smoking only contribution to more problems, both vital role in educating people on their right, educating people created awareness that smoking should be eradicated organized antismoking also organized crusade to discourage smoking ability among teenagers because of the alarming increase in the number of teenagers that smoke. What ignorance is not an exercise in the court of law? In my own opinion, considering the number of American dieing daily through smoking, it should be eradicating or reduced to the lowest level through harsh laws and policies. Firstly, the 25percent of the population whose rights are either denied or ignored and the debate over cigarettes has been framed as if smoking were the unwitting victims of the tobacco industry. If their rights are not denied or ignored the health risks and the number of cases of health problem associated with smoking would have light up fire under our feet that none of us would know how to put out. However, this pack journalism runs amok and that we media fancy ourselves independent thinkers are not true because media would have consulted or confided in people or journals before they would conclude on any story. Public health community and media view smoking as a scourge to be eradicated. This as true and it should be eradicated because of its havoc. Also sitting of tobacco industry in an area be discouraged like coughing, shortness of breath, production of phlegm(mucus), respiratory illness, reduced physical fitness, poor lung growth and and function etc. More so, the simplest is whether is trying to make Americans better off, the antismoking crusade would make many Americans worse off, smokers would clearly suffer huge price and tax increases. In the contrary, it is in trying to make Americans better off and the antismoking crusade would make many American better off, the increase in the price of tobacco from 62percent to $1.50per pack would discourage many smokers even I will prefer it is raised up to $20per pack. Do you know how many people would stop buying cigarette? Higher prices will deter some people from smoking. But for the rest could be siphoning billions away from the poorer people for good policy or fair? It is true that higher prices will prevent some people from smoking in spite of this it is the number stocks taken by the smokers that would be reduced. Cigarette companies such as Phillip Morris, have publicly admitted that tax increases prove to deter smoking. Furthermore, smoking has been increasing among teenagers who once they try cigarette may become addicted for life. Secondly, tobacco ads cause much teenage smoking teenagers are therefore victims thirdly, passive smoking (non smokers inhaling smoke) in public places is a serious health threat, justifying action against smokers. All these assumptions are true and do not permeate media coverage. The rate of
tobacco smoking among teenagers are still higher because about 1 in 7 higher school boys use some form of spit or smokers tobacco likewise more than 2percent of higher school girl use spit or smokers tobacco. Children and teens are easy target for the tobacco industry. They’re often influence by TV, Movies, advertising, and by what their friends do and say. Children and teens don’t think much about future health, health outcomes. Passive smoking has the same consequence as tobacco smoking. Passive smoking may cause cancers of the mouth, cancers of the oharynx (throat), cancers of the esophagus(swallowing tube), receding gums, which can progress to the point that the teeth fall out, pre-cancerous spots in the mouth, called leukoplakia, and there is also possibility of heart attack and stroke. Conclusively, research has slow in that teens who use a form of other oral tobacco are more likely to become cigarette smokers than nonsmokers. On the survey of the University of Michingan which shows a rise in the teen smoking while on the contrary government showed a decreased. And the 18.3 percent of teenage between 12 and 17 had smoked in the past mouth the lowest. Either a report shows an increase or a decrease, it is the havoc done by this acquiring habit that teens should look at and not the disparity in the survey. Remember nobody is above mistake. Tasting the smoke once is even dangerous became the probability of the percentage of the teenagers that tasted cigarette once to be addicted is higher. The “addiction” isn’t so great that millions haven’t broken it. The addiction is so great even it is alarming that smoking responsible for nearly 1 out of every 5death of smoking in America. Even smoking kills faster than other diseases says a research. However, the press are not bias them conclusion is derived from the research and opinions of the people. Don’t smokers have a right to engage in behaviour whose pleasures and pains mainly theirs without being punished by the rest of the society? Smokers pay more for insurance overall, but our entire society, including smokers and non-smokers alike pays the price. Each American household spends over $600 a year in federal and state taxes due to smoking. These costs come from medical expenses from the un-insured, or those who have lost productivity due to illness or death related to smoking. All these add to health care bill spent on both public and private health care. Conclusively, research has shown that cigarette smokers also more likely to get into fights, carry weapons, and attempt suicides, suffer from mental health problems such as depression and engage in high risk sexual behaviors. |They are not abandon because the press and others still organize, crusade, seminars, talks and other forms of educational enlightenment in other to open up smokers’ eyes to the dangerous effect of smoking. The essay is quite educative interesting and good for every Americans especially the youth to read. The author is bias and sentimental about its critique.
The point made above and explained, I believe it has justify my stand in either supporting or going against the author in some area as regard his view. Conclusively, it is quite good that American is now taking the fight against smoking serious and people should be advised to quite smoking for their well being and long term effect.
