Cigarette Smoking   # 1 Killer In the United States

# 1 Killer

Cigarette smoking is widely recognized as the leading preventable cause of illness, disability, and premature death in the United States.

Today one in five deaths is cigarette-related!  This accounts for more than 430,000 deaths each year. Half of all regular users will be disabled or die as a result of smoking.

In May, 2000 the National Institute for Environmental Health Sciences moved secondhand smoke up to the category of known causes of cancer in humans.

Prevalence of cigarette use in the total US population is estimated at 30.9% but the number of cigarettes sold per person in 1999 dropped a record 8%.  There are 4.5 million current smokers, ages 12 to 17.

Smoke-related illnesses cost the nation more than $100 billion each year.  It is estimated that $50 billion are spent for medical costs and another $50 billion for indirect expenses.

Environmental Tobacco Smoke

In a 1998 report in the Journal of the American Medical Association (Vol. 279, No. 2, pp. 119-124), researchers concluded that people with a history of exposure to environmental tobacco smoke (secondhand smoke) should be considered at increased risk of developing cardiovascular disease (atherosclerosis). This is true for both smokers and nonsmokers.

There are more than 64,000 deaths a year attributed to environmental tobacco smoke.  Secondhand smoke is the third most preventable cause of death.

Alcohol and Smoking

A study conducted in 1995-96 by the University of Nebraska, Omaha, tested recovering alcoholics to assess rates of smoking cessation. The final report stated that in the past treatment experts have not encouraged recovering alcoholics to quit smoking for fear the nicotine withdrawal would induce relapse.

The Nebraska researchers found, however, that the recovering alcoholics who quit smoking were less likely to relapse. The researchers concluded that treatment professionals should encourage smoking cessation, and should use more intensive interventions.

Youth

"Today, nearly 3,000 young people across our country will begin smoking regularly. Of these 3,000 young people, 1,000 will lose that gamble to the diseases caused by smoking. The net effect of this is that among children living in America today, 5 million will die an early, preventable death because of a decision made as a child." (Donna E. Shalala)

The World Health Organization states that ``Tobacco advertising and use in the entertainment and sports industry projects images of smokers as fun-loving and glamorous and, most insidiously, healthy. Attractive images and people suggest that smoking is a powerful tool for enhancing self-image. The illusion helps the tobacco industry sell a product that kills."

In a survey of the 25 top-grossing movies from 1988-1997, 95% contained scenes portraying tobacco use.

Tobacco Kills - Don't Be Duped
(Slogan from the World Health Organization)

Nicotine dependency through cigarette smoking is the most common form of drug addiction, causing more death and disease than all other addictions combined.

It is now well documented that regular smokers increase their risk of death by

      Lung cancer                                700%

      Cancer of the larynx                     500%     

      Cancer of the mouth                    300%

      Cancer of the esophagus              400%

      Bladder cancer                           100%

      Cancer of the pancreas               100%

      Emphysema                              1,300%

      Heart disease                              100%

Out of 4,700 chemicals in cigarettes, researchers have identified 60 carcinogenic chemicals.

Cigarettes contain:

    Cyanide (deadly poison)

    Formaldehyde (preserves organs and tissues taken from humans and animals)

    Methanol (wood alcohol)

    Acetylene (fuel used in torches)

    Ammonia (household cleaning product)

    Acetone (fingernail polish remover)

    Poisonous gases: Nitrogen oxide and carbon monoxide
