Why smoking should be banned throughout the UK

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Why smoking should be banned throughout the world Dear reader, I am going to explain to you why I strongly believe that smoking should be made illegal, and banned globally. If you know someone who smokes and you've ever had to spend any time with them, in a confined space, then you will know exactly what I'm talking about when I say how disgusting it is to have to sit by someone on a bus or in a car if they are a smoker. It ends up with not only them smelling of stale smoke but you too. ...read more.

Yes, people do die of cancer every year that is nothing to do with tobacco smoke but 90% of people who die of lung cancer die of tobacco related causes. Approximately 30% of all cancer deaths are smoking related and in 2005 there were 46,000 smoking related deaths in the UK.

Conclusion

Think of all the fumes and smoke that you're pumping into the atmosphere, I doubt that's helping the growing global worry about climate change. Banning cigarettes is the best possible thing to do. Smoking is neither cool nor clever it is possibly one of the most ridiculous things that I can think of doing. And it is beyond my belief the amount of people that do smoke. And these people are not all old men but young teenage girls, who often start young and can never quit, and have far better things to do be doing than pumping themselves full of rubbish. So if you want to save the world and the lives of millions of people then ban smoking and save mankind. ...read more.
