A person doesn't actually smoke, only the cigarette smokes, all the person does is SUCK.
When a person sucks, all the smoke associated with sucking transports chemicals into the body.
These dangerous chemicals, like carbon monoxide that is a deadly gas, causes irritations and toxic build up in the body.
This weakens the body and makes it more susceptible to disease.
Sucking tobacco without any chemicals does not do the same thing to a person.
American cigarettes are made by taking leaves that have been grown in chemically treated soils, sprayed insecticides, and then dried in very hot ovens that alter the tobacco proteins.
Then chemicals are added to make the cigarettes more addictive, etc. in the name of science.
When the sucker takes these chemicals in, the infections are created.
So called "second hand smoke" is a combination of smoke the suckers have breathed in and then exhaled.
Some of the chemicals and garbage get filtered by the sucker, but there is still chemicals in the smoke.
Then the smoke being put into the air from the cigarette is still smoke with all the chemicals in it.
There are laws now that forbid people to suck in their cars when children are in the car.
That is now illegal to do.
People who suck generally do so for two reasons: 1) a death wish due to some psychological reason and the sucker is not strong or weak enough (depending on how you look at it) to take their life and then 2) the psychological drive to prove to people that they are in control of their life and no one is going to tell them what they can and cannot do.
Both of these things cause the person to welcome bad things that can happen to them if they continue to suck.
When someone tells them, "you should stop smoking because it's bad for your health," this only supports the idea of why they are smoking in the first place.
The physical addiction can be gone in a few days when a person stops sucking, but it is the emotional side that is extremely addictive.
If you will notice, dogs that live in homes where one person sucks die young of lung cancer or other diseases.
It is the smoke that kills them because they have smaller lung tissues and it affects them faster.
A sucking ban in one Colorado city led to a dramatic drop in heart attack hospitalizations within three years, a sign of just how serious a health threat secondhand smoke is, government researchers said Wednesday. The study, the longest-running of its kind, showed the rate of hospitalized cases dropped 41 percent in the three years after the ban of workplace smoking in Pueblo, Colo., took effect. There was no such drop in two neighboring areas, and researchers believe it's a clear sign the ban was responsible.
The study suggests that secondhand smoke may be a terrible and under-recognized cause of heart attack deaths in this country, said one of its authors, Terry Pechacek of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
At least eight earlier studies have linked sucking bans to decreased heart attacks, but none ran as long as three years. The new study looked at heart attack hospitalizations for three years following the July 1, 2003 enactment of Pueblo's ban, and found declines as great or greater than those in earlier research.
"This study is very dramatic," said Dr. Michael Thun, a researcher with the American Cancer Society.
"This is now the ninth study, so it is clear that smoke-free laws are one of the most effective and cost-effective to reduce heart attacks," said Thun, who was not involved in the CDC study released Thursday.
Sucking bans are designed not only to cut smoking rates but also to reduce secondhand tobacco smoke. It is a widely recognized cause of lung cancer, but its effect on heart disease can be more immediate. It not only damages the lining of blood vessels, but also increases the kind of blood clotting that leads to heart attacks. Reducing exposure to smoke can quickly cut the risk of clotting, some experts said.
"You remove the final one or two links in the chain" of events leading to a heart attack, Thun said.
Secondhand smoke causes an estimated 46,000 heart disease deaths and about 3,000 lung cancer deaths among nonsmokers each year, according to statistics cited by the CDC.
In the new study, researchers reviewed hospital admissions for heart attacks in Pueblo. Patients were classified by ZIP codes. They then looked at the same data for two nearby areas that did not have bans ? the area of Pueblo County outside the city and for El Paso County.
In Pueblo, the rate of heart attacks dropped from 257 per 100,000 people before the ban to 152 per 100,000 in the three years afterward. There were no significant changes in the two other areas.
"The need for protection from secondhand smoke in all workplaces and public places has never been clearer," said Matthew Myers of the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids, in a prepared statement. He is president of the Washington, D.C.-based advocacy organization.
