 NO SMOKING

Smoking causes lung cancer. Lung cancer is the number one cancer among men. Ninety percent of the people who get lung cancer die. Smokers have six times as much cancer of the mouth. Tongue, and throat as nonsmokers. Smokers have twice as much heart disease. Smoking gives people breathing problems. It harms the stomach. Smoking causes one million early deaths in the world every year

 

Throughout the world, women live longer than men. Why? Because men smoke more. Nonsmoking men live just as long as women

 

Smokers pollute the air. They breathe out 100 times as much pollution as nonsmokers. They breathe it out on their children and on their wives or husbands. Children whose parents smoke have more breathing and lung problems than other children. Among nonsmoking women married to smokers, there are twice as many deaths from lung cancer as there are among women married to non-smokers. Men have the right to kill themselves by smoking if they want to. They do not have the right to kill their wives and children by smoking

 

Smokers are absent from work more. Factories and businesses lose millions of dollars every year because of smokers. Smokers have higher medical bills

 

All of these facts from research show that smoking is bad. So why do people smoke

 

Young people start smoking because everyone else is doing it. They feel grown up and independent. It helps them relax. Then it becomes a habit

 

It is very difficult to stop smoking, but the chance of getting lung cancer decreases only one year after you stop. After ten years, the chance is almost the same as for nonsmokers. It is possible to quit smoking. Thirty million people in the United States have quit because they believe the research. You or your friends can quit too
