3 PUBLIC HEALTH versus BIG TOBACCO The biggest opponent to tobacco control efforts is the tobacco industry itself. The TOBACCO INDUSTRY For decades, the tobacco industry has publicly denied the addictive nature of nicotine and the negative health effects of tobacco. April 14, 1994: Seven top executives of major tobacco companies state, under oath, that they believe nicotine is not addictive. Tobacco industry documents suggest otherwise Documents available at In the U.S., for every $1 spent on tobacco prevention, the tobacco industry spends $28 to market its products. The cigarette is a heavily engineered product. Designed and marketed to maximize bioavailability of nicotine and addictive potential Profits over people An EFFECTIVE MARKETING STRATEGY: LIGHT CIGARETTES The difference between Marlboro and Marlboro Lights TOBACCO INDUSTRY ADVERTISING $1.1 billion spent in the U.S. in % increase over 22 figures 3.% increase over 21 figures an extra row of ventilation holes Billions of dollars spent Image courtesy of Mayo Clinic Nicotine Dependence Center - Research Program / Dr. Richard D.

4 COMPOUNDS in TOBACCO SMOKE An estimated 4,8 compounds in tobacco smoke, including 11 proven human carcinogens Gases Carbon monoxide Hydrogen cyanide Ammonia Benzene Formaldehyde Particles Nicotine Nitrosamines Lead Cadmium Polonium-21 Nicotine does NOT cause the ill health effects of tobacco. 24 REPORT of the SURGEON GENERAL: HEALTH CONSEQUENCES OF SMOKING FOUR MAJOR CONCLUSIONS: Smoking harms nearly every organ of the body, causing many diseases and reducing the health of smokers in general. Quitting smoking has immediate as well as long-term benefits, reducing risks for diseases caused by smoking and improving health in general. Smoking cigarettes with lower machine-measured yields of tar and nicotine provides no clear benefit to health. The list of diseases caused by smoking has been expanded.

HEALTH CONSEQUENCES of SMOKING Cancers Acute myeloid leukemia Bladder and kidney Cervical Esophageal Gastric Laryngeal Lung Oral cavity and pharyngeal Pancreatic Pulmonary diseases Acute (e.g., pneumonia) Chronic (e.g., COPD) Cardiovascular diseases Abdominal aortic aneurysm Coronary heart disease Cerebrovascular disease Peripheral arterial disease Reproductive effects Reduced fertility in women Poor pregnancy outcomes (e.g., low birth weight, preterm delivery) Infant mortality Other effects: cataract, osteoporosis, periodontitis, poor surgical outcomes U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

(SIDS), acute respiratory infections, ear problems, and more severe asthma Respiratory symptoms and slowed lung growth if parents smoke Adults: Immediate adverse effects on cardiovascular system Increased risk for coronary heart disease and lung cancer Millions of Americans are exposed to smoke in their homes/workplaces Indoor spaces: eliminating smoking fully protects nonsmokers Separating smoking areas, cleaning the air, and ventilation are ineffective USDHHS.

Among those who continue smoking, at least half will die due to a tobacco-related disease. Doll et al. (24).

Nearly half a million U.S. deaths are attributable to smoking annually. Smoking costs the U.S. $17.7 billion per year. Lifetime financial costs of smoking can exceed $3, for a heavy smoker. At any age, there are benefits to quitting smoking. The biggest opponent to tobacco control efforts is the tobacco industry itself.
