United States Tobacco Industry
United States of America

Alright I know we have all herd this before but honestly, we need to look at the facts here. Every 8 seconds someone dies of tobacco! And next time it could be you! Or someone in your family!

Almost 50,000 people a year die from second hand smoke alone! Just second hand! Just from being in the same room with someone who smokes.

Tobacco companies are making products that kill their customers! Their product(s) kill 440,000 of there buyers a year and 1,200 a day!

But why should this be surprising? Cigarettes zalready have about 700 chemicals in them alone! 69 of these chemicals are even known to cause cancer! Just to name a few chemicals:benzene, carbon monoxide, arsenic, hydrogen cyanide and polonium 210 (which is a radioactive chemical).

Ever heard of urea? the dictionary defines urea as: A water-soluble compound, CO(NH2)2, that is the major nitrogenous end product of protein metabolism and is the chief nitrogenous component of the urine in mammals and other organisms. Also called carbamide.

Some tobacco companies even add urea to their cigarettes.

"In 1990, 72 million bottles of a popular mineral water were voluntarily recalled because of small traces of benzene. The smoke from one pack of unfiltered cigarettes has as much benzene as 169 bottles of the contaminated water."

I beleive the most shocking quote of all is "How do infants avoid secondhand smoke? "At some point they begin to crawl." -- Tobacco Executive 1996"

Smoking also causes 445 new cases of lung cancer everyday.

Now think about this...We supposedly live in the "Best country of All" but if we're so great..why does out governement allow people to sell things that will kill us?

Please Join the fight for a Smoke Free World.
