2. Smoking Kills People Every Day
Back in the 1950s, before there were any regulations in place for advertising tobacco products, smoking was seen as not just benign; it was seen as healthy. One commercial by the Camel company promoted its product by claiming that more doctors smoke Camel cigarettes than any other brand!
But we now know that cigarettes are far from benign. They contain hundreds of harmful chemicals, many of which are carcinogens. Carcinogens are substances that cause cancer. In addition to cancer and other deadly illnesses, cigarettes cause a whole host of health problems, not to mention financial ones from the drain they put on people’s wallets.
