Individual Project 4

Abstract: This an essay about how people’s bad habits can get them banned from public

places, aka smoking. This essay’s issue is about smoking banned in most of all public

places. There is no point in endangering your health and also someone else’s in these

public places.

Individual Project 5

You are harming other people while you smoke around them. There is no need of risking

your life for one little cigarette. The whole idea of people letting smoke in public places

and endangering other people’s health is foolish and cannot be supported by any

evidence. It is not right for smokers to be endangering someone else’s life and getting

away with it.

Smoking should be stopped because it wastes a lot of money, and is very addictive. Also,

it is bad for the smoker’s health to smoke tobacco because of the very bad chemicals in

the tobacco. Smoking is not right and we should all quit before we get a bad habit of it.

The numbers of smokers are not declining only increasing.

When I say that smoking is bad for everyone, I mean everyone including people who do

not smoke. Children are more in a risk to get asthma by consuming the smoke of a

cigarette gives off because they breathe more rapidly than adults do. It’s not just kids

either, but non-smoking food service workers are more likely to get cancer than in any

other workplace. Smoking has a huge effect in people and this is a matter that needs to

be handled seriously.

A leading cause of asthma that leads to high hospitalization for children is in-fact second-

hand smoking. When people come in contact with second-hand smoke people may

experience headaches, respiratory illness, including asthma, pneumonia and bronchitis.

Tobacco is made with extremely harmful substances, such as pesticides, carbon monoxide and nicotine that is a drug. If the ingredients inside tobacco are burned they

are even more deadly and harmful. Some ingredients in a “puff” include: benzene,

toluene, formaldehyde, acetone, and ammonia. These are harmful substances like

formaldehyde is a preservative for dead bodies, ammonia in fertilizers, pesticides, and

detergents and toluene in gasoline, and anti-freeze. More than 40 chemicals cause heart

disease lung disease, and cancer in people.

Smoking is harmful to your body, it is known that millions in America, but 40,000

Canadians will die from smoking this year, and it is the leading cause of diseases and

deaths, which could easily be prevented. Smoking has become, the number one known

death in both American and Canadians, and the number of smokers are only increasing

by the day. Smoking can cause more deaths than alcohol, suicides, AIDS, elicit drugs,

car accidents, and murders put together. A powerful ingredient called nicotine causes

most of this. Even though smokers want to quit, can’t because of the addiction to


Another argument I have against public smoking is health. If you continue to consume

tobacco you will lose, a healthy heart, healthy lungs, healthy body, control, up to 15 years

average health, and many more. Smoking causes a lot of harmful things in you and

outside of your body. Some affects are: irregular heart beat, make your heart work harder

by narrowing vessels so its harder to pump blood, raises blood level which makes heart

pump harder by narrowing vessels so it’s harder to pump up blood, raises blood level

which makes the heart pump harder than normal, decreases the amount of oxygen in your

body so the heart has to work harder to get oxygen to the body. It is a major cause of Individual Project 5

cancers like mouth, lung, throat and esophagus cancer. It can also cause cancer of other

organs as well. There are 3 major companies that...
