Cigarettes Should Be Illegal Do you really want your kids growing up in a world filled with cigarette smoke Your answer should be no Cigarettes kill about 1500 people each day thats more than 450000 dead Americans each year Thats more than aids alcohol fire car accidents suicide drugs and murders combined That is ridiculous more than 3000 teenagers start smoking each day More than 1 billion packs of cigarettes are consumed yearly by kids 18 and younger People who smoke about a pack a day will have the equivalent to 1 cup of tar in their bodies in less than a year this is what causes smoking to give you bad breath In less than 5 years you will begin signs of aging such as wrinkles and pale gray skin If thats what happens in five years imagine what you will look like when you are even older Ok how bad is this A key ingredient in cigarettes is carbon monoxide what carbon monoxide does is destroy oxygen So when you inhale this it gets into your blood and destroys the oxygen in your blood This causes loss of breath and also effects your brain in other words it slows you down For athletes this is horrible because they arent able to think split second like a lot of baseball and football players have to do And while this is happening the nicotine is being sucked into your blood This raises your heart rate which means your body craves more oxygen but the carbon monoxide doesnt allow this to happen Thats why a lot of smokers become short of breath so easily When you puff a cigarette toxins are being poured into your body Over time it starts to build up in your lungs and throat and creates throat and lung cancer It will also slowly mess up your lungs ability to oxygenate your blood this creates emphysema Smoking messes up your heart
