    Tobacco Companies kill their best customers



    AALOK SHARMA (I.MT&N.E)


    As all we know that consumption of tobacco leads to death and most of the tobacco consumers are either addicted or regular users of tobacco. So it is rightly said that “Tobacco Companies kill their best customers “ It is now generally recognized that tobacco consumption results in high mortality and morbidity. Tobacco-related diseases are the single most important cause of preventable deaths in the world. Smoking and passive smoking cause more than 20 major categories of fatal and disabling disease, including lung and other cancers. To know more severity I have gone through various sites and found some facts about tobacco and its users. Some of the facts which are mentioned in WHO site are : -

    1.Tobacco smoking is the second major cause of death in the world.
    2.Tobacco kills nearly 6 million people each year ( 1 every 6 seconds )
    3.It is currently responsible for the death of 1 in 10 adults
    4.It kills up to half of its users
    5.If current smoking pattern continue , it will cause 8 million death each year by year 2030
    6.Tobacco caused 100 million deaths in 20th century At current trend , up to 1 billion will die in 21st century from tobacco.
    7.On an average , a smoker dies in middle age losses about 20 years of life expectancy compared to who never smoked.
    8.An estimated 1.3 billion people smoke 84% of all smokers live in developing and transitional economy countries
    9.Most people start smoking before the age of 18; almost a quarter of these individuals begin using tobacco before the age of 10
    10.Tobacco is the fourth most common risk factor for disease worldwide


    Effect of tobacco on Passive smokers ( Second hand smokers ) :-


    Second-hand smoke causes 600,000 premature deaths per year.
    Of the over 4000 chemicals in tobacco smoke, at least 250 are known to be harmful and more than 50 are known to cause cancer.
    An estimated 200,000 workers die every year due to exposure to smoke at work; The US Environmental Protection Agency estimates that second-hand smoke is responsible for about 3000 lung cancer deaths annually among non-smokers in the country. About 40% of all children are regularly exposed to second-hand smoke at home.
    31% of the deaths attributable to second-hand smoke occur in children. 10% of the economic costs related to tobacco use are attributable to second-hand smoke.

    Just as infectious diseases know no geographic or political boundaries, individual countries are incapable of effectively containing tobacco consumption. Tobacco companies have increased marketing activities in developing countries, where about 900 million smokers live, accounting for 70% of global consumption. There is growing evidence to suggest a link between tobacco consumption, free trade and tobacco-related foreign direct investment (FDI). This trend is exacerbated by transnational tobacco companies strategies to enter emerging market economies.


    Tobacco companies deliberately manipulated their product design and composition to make nicotine delivery as effective as possible :-


    - Cigarette companies deliberately added nicotine to their products to get people hooked.
    - Nicotine delivery impact is controlled by cigarette companies in many ways
    - they add ammonia to reduce the harshness of the taste, make the filter and cigarette paper in such a way that maximum ingestion of nicotine occurs, and they control the physical and chemical make-up of the tobacco blend.
    Smoking and nicotine are highly addictive :
    - Nicotine is the addictive drug in tobacco. Smoking is highly addictive.
    - Tobacco companies deliberately designed their cigarettes with enough nicotine to make consumers addicted and to keep them addicted
    - Giving up smoking is not easy
    - When nicotine enters your body it changes your brain, making it much harder to quit


    Conclusion :-


    As we have seen and mentioned , following are the concluding points :-
    Smoking and tobacco consumption is highly addictive
    In order to make more addictive , tobacco companies add Nicotine which makes smokers hard to quit smoking
    Smokers population is increasing day by day as the population is increasing in developing countries 1 person in 6 second gets killed due to tobacco consumption / smoking
    Finally , with the growing population , number of smokers is also increasing. Due to Nicotine added into cigarettes , smokers get addicted and become regular smokers. Due to excessive smoking habits , smokers get die much earlier than the non smoker.
