Worldwide Cigarettes         Smoked Live:
Since the beginning of the year, worldwide smoked cigarettes are in millions:
Deaths due to Airplane Crashes Let's compare the danger of smoking to something that generates huge media interest such as when an airplane filled with 380 people crashes leaving no survivors. It is a horrible tragedy whenever something like that occurs, so many people lost at a time. However, in order to get up to the same deadly level as smoking, airplanes with 380 people on board would be crashing at a rate of one every 33 minutes, which means 43 planes per day every day. There is such a staggering difference in how much more probable it is to die from smoking than from flying, but there is no media interest and hardly anyone notices.

Smoked Worldwide: 5 Million Tons of Cigarettes per Year and 6 Million Dead due to Smoking Consequences   Smoking is a practice used by roughly one seventh of the population of the planet. There are about one billion smokers worldwide. It has been a long time since people have started smoking. The number of smoked cigarettes and cigarillos per year is around 5.3 trillion. We now know more than ever before just how dangerous a practice smoking is. When a cigarette is lit up it produces thousands of dangerous chemicals, many of which are poisons and known to cause cancer and other severely adverse side-effects. Here are just a few: Tar - the mix of solid particles inhaled which forms a residue in the oral cavity and lungs where it causes cancer. Arsenic - a carcinogen and poison which attacks the vascular system and DNA. Benzene - another carcinogen, mainly responsible for leukemia. Cadmium - a carcinogen used in batteries, also attacks the artery linings, kidneys and DNA. Polonium-21 - radioactive, emits alpha rays normally blocked by skin but when inhaled causes DNA damage and cancer. And of course, the main chemical which makes it highly addictive: Nicotine, one of the most addictive substances, much like cocaine and heroin. 6 million people die every year due to smoking, that means that every 5 seconds one person dies due to consequences of smoking. Those who smoke are not only the ones with cigarettes in their mouths - first hand smokers -, but also those who happen to breathe in the air containing the smoke from their cigars - second hand smokers.
Clancer:   There is a long-term observation from the USA that shows that pure cigar and tobacco pipe smokers live a little longer than non-smokers. This is probably due to the fact that smoking a pipe (classical pipe is meant) has a lot to do with relaxation. No pipe smoker places himself in a smoking corner during working hours and quartzes a cigar/pipe in himself. Also, pipes and cigars are not normally inhaled. But what the cigar and pipe lover should absolutely leave out is the cognac or whiskey to smoke. The alcohol rinses the mucous membranes bare and the fine particles in the smoke can penetrate deeply. The result is tongue cancer or palatal cancer. A well-known victim is, for example, Siegmund Freud, who fell ill with palatal cancer. Some get lung cancer, throat cancer, oral cavity cancer, tongue cancer, esophageal cancer, tracheal cancer, colon cancer, heart attack, stroke, smoker’s legs, arteriosclerosis, asthma,…
Clancer:   Even today we hear from educated people that there is no proven link between smoking and the likelihood of developing cancer. As “evidence” anecdotes are often told about people who have smoked away the stuff in packs into old age (H. Schmidt et al.). The study clearly proves, based on specific gene mutation patterns, that the risk of cancer increases massively with every cigarette. The effects on the cardiovascular system have not yet been taken into account. In addition to about 90% of all lung cancers, smoking also causes over a third of coronary heart diseases. Besides alcoholism, smoking is thus the most dangerous addiction with the most addicts. According to calculations by the University of Hamburg, economic costs of 35 billion euros p.a. arise, which is more than 2000 euros extra costs per smoker compared to non-smokers for the German health system. It is time that the contributions of the statutory health insurance companies are not only based on the amount of income. Those who live healthy must receive more support from the health insurance companies in terms of prevention. In return, people with unhealthy lifestyles should take responsibility for their own health through risk premiums and, for example, additional contributions. This system would be much more effective than pumping more and more money into the system and burdening contributors more and more.
