Tobacco Use and Traffic Crash

Smoking cigarettes gives smokers personal freedom but smoking ban only cut the people’ liberty, hold a group of smokers. Thirty years later, medical evidence showed that secondhand smoke is deadly. But according to the federal Centers for Disease Control, secondhand smoke kills more Americans than traffic crashes.

The Center for Disease Control (CDC) found that each year, because of exposure to secondhand smoke, an estimated 3,000 non-smoking Americans die of lung cancer, and more than 46,000 die of heart disease. On other hand traffic crashes killed 40,059 people in 2007.

The anti-smoking campaigns continue search if smoking is really harmful. Most of the city commission candidates oppose the newly adopted smoking ban. Most doubt the CDC’s conclusions about how harmful secondhand smoke is.

Sidney Shultz, 1218 E Ellsworth, said: “I really couldn’t tell you what secondhand smoke does to people. If it was proven that it is absolutely dangerous then, yes. But they haven’t proven to me beyond a doubt that’s true.” He is not sure if smoking is harmful.

However the CDC declared that tobacco use is the single most preventable cause of disease, disability and death in the United States. Each year, an estimated 443,000 die prematurely from smoking or exposure to secondhand smoke, and another 8.6 million have a serious illness caused by smoking.

That’s more deaths, every year, than were caused by motor vehicles in the past decade.

If secondhand smoke really did pose a significant danger, then the federal government from USA would have intervened. Only smoking ban could reduce the frequency of heart attacks among people, according to researchers’ studies.
