So let’s talk about smokings effects on the environment. I mean there are weird and wonderful world of things that shouldn’t taste good together. I mean but do they?

We all know that smoking is harmful to the human body, but there is actually a second damaging side to smoking and cigarettes. Both cigarette smoke itself and the waste from cigarettes can have a major impact on the environment.

In this piece, we’ll take a look at just how much damage smoking does on the environment. Moreover and highlight some off the shocking statistics. Especially surrounding recklessly discarded cigarette butts too.

Since the 1920s, scientists and doctors have been able to link smoking with respiratory illness. Researchers have identified negative health effects from smoking cigarettes such as cancer, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease(COPD), heart disease, and other health problems relating to nearly every organ of the body. Nicotine, the psychoactive drugin tobacco, makes cigarettes highly addictive. About half of cigarette smokers die of tobacco-related disease and lose on average 14 years of life. Every year, tobacco cigarettes kill more than 8 million people worldwide; with 1.2 million of those being non-smokers dying as the result of exposure to second-hand smoke. Second-hand smoke from cigarettes causes many of the same health problems as smoking, including cancer, which has led to legislation and policy that has prohibited smoking in many workplaces and public areas.

Such as that there are 4.5 TRILLION cigarettes littered worldwide each year. That’s with over 3 million collected solely from beaches and inland waterways.
