Smoking and Anti-Smoking Research Debate
Institutional Affiliation




The smoking debate unless resolved by the conflicting parties from the smoking and antismoking parties will not end unless both parties can agree on several things. In the anti-smoking
side is the health and regulatory agencies which are firmly against any form of smoking and are
looking for smoking to be banned if possible. On the pro smoking camp is the smoking
community which believes that the government controlled health and regulatory agencies have
not clearly explained all the risks associated with smoking. It is for this reason that it is important
to understand why each party believes their point of view to be the correct one when compared
to their opponent’s views. A compromise can only be reached if the research conducted in future
on smoking involves both camps and both camps can agree on the conclusions of the research.
At one point, everyone has come across advertisements or articles that speak up against
smoking. This information is most often spread by health regulatory agencies which have for a
long time believed that risks of chronic diseases increases with the increase of smoking. Several
articles are in place that clearly explains these negative effects of smoking. Smoking, according
to numerous research publications is associated with lung cancers especially due to the presence
of tobacco. These research shows that smoking is likely to cause as many as 16 different cancers.
These include cancers that can affect the bladder, kidney, urethra, lung, throat, mouth, sinuses,
nose, pancreas, stomach etcetera.
It is believed that out of every 5 cancer deaths, one death is likely caused by smoking.
Smoking is said to be hazardous due to some 69 chemical components in cigarettes and that are
considered carcinogens. These include nicotine which is the compound that causes addiction in
smokers. Other compounds include Arsenic, Ammonia, Carbon Monoxide, Uranium,
Nitrosamines, Lead, Hydrogen Cyanide, Formaldehyde etcetera (American Cancer Society, n.d.).
It is believed that each of these chemicals is harmful to a person’s health and with smokers
