  • 1. (Tobacco Damages and cure)
    Dr. AnwrAlnahdi
    Smoking related-diseases kill one in 10 adults globally, or cause four million deaths. By 2030, if current trends continue, smoking will kill one in six people.
    Every eight seconds, someone dies from tobacco use.
    About 15 billion cigarettes are sold daily - or 10 million every minute.
  • 3. Statistics on Teen Smoking
    Among young teens (aged 13 to 15), about one in five smokes worldwide.
    Between 80,000 and 100,000 children worldwide start smoking every day - roughly half of whom live in Asia.
    Evidence shows that around 50% of those who start smoking in adolescent years go on to smoke for 15 to 20 years.
    Peer-reviewed studies show teenagers are heavily influenced by tobacco advertising.
    About a quarter of youth alive in the Western Pacific Region will die from smoking.
  • 4. Approximately 80% of adult smokers started smoking before the age of 18.
    Every day, nearly 3,000 young people under the age of 18 become regular smokers.
    Nearly all first use of tobacco occurs before high school graduation.
  • 5. The smoking epidemic
    • 75% of smokers live in low or middle income countries
    World Health Organization. The Tobacco Atlas.
  • 6. Types of Tobacco
    Chewing Tobacco
  • 7. Type of Tobacco
  • 8. Chemicals in Tobacco
    A stimulant
    Carcinogens are cancer causing agents
    More than 4000 chemicals
    10% are carcinogens or poisonous
    The 3 most poisonous chemicals are: tar, nicotine, and carbon monoxide
  • 9. Nicotine
    Psychoactive substance- causes a change in the person’s mood or behavior
    Very addictive- causes a physical dependence
  • 10. Tar
    Tiny pieces that when inhaled in to the lungs, condense and form a sticky coating on the bronchial tubes
    Same substance used to pave roads!!!
    Destroys cilia, waving hair-like projections that work to keep the respiratory tract clear.
  • 11. Carbon Monoxide
    A colorless, odorless, poisonous gas released by burning tobacco
    Interferes with the blood’s ability to carry oxygen
    Same gas from car exhaust
    if inhaled directly-can be fatal
  • 12.
  • 13. Smokeless Tobacco
    Cracking and bleeding lips and gums
    receding gums, which can eventually make your teeth fall out
    increased heart rate, high blood pressure, and irregular heartbeats=leading to a greater risk of heart attacks and brain damage
    ORAL CANCER-lips, tongue, cheeks, gums, ANYWHERE IN MOUTH!
    CANCER-stomach, esophagus, bladder
  • 14.
  • 15. Health Lung Vs. Smoker’s lung
  • 16. Tobacco on the skin
  • 17. Tobacco on the hands
  • 18. Tobacco on the Mouth
  • 19. About 90 percent of lung cancer deaths in men and almost 80 percent of lung cancer deaths in women are due to smoking.
    People who smoke are 10 to 20 times more likely to get lung cancer or die from lung cancer than people who do not smoke
  • 20. Effects on the body
    When you inhale a cigarette, the nicotine travels to the bloodstream and then to the brain- this only take 8 seconds
    Heart will beat faster
    Blood pressure will increase
    Become more alert and energetic
    Sense of smell and taste decrease
    Yellow Teeth, Fingernails
    Smelly clothes, hair, breath, house, car, etc.
    “Smokers Voice”
    growth of malignant cells that attack and replace healthy cells
    NO CURE!!
    Now kills more women than breast cancer!
    Many females believe smoking causes weight loss-There is NO PROOF of this being true!
  • 22. Chronic Bronchitis
    Inflammation of the bronchial tubes
    Chronic coughing, excessive mucus production
    Cilia becomes useless-covered with tar
  • 23. Pulmonary Emphysema
    Destruction of tiny air sacs in lungs which absorb oxygen into the body
    Tiny air sacs=ALVEOLI
    Instead of using only 5% of their energy to breathe, a person with advanced emphysema uses 80% of their energy to breathe!!
  • 24. How much money do you save by not smoking???
  • 25. Let’s say someone smokes 1 pack a day…
    Per PACK they will spend 5
    Per WEEK they will spend 35
    Per MONTH they will spend 140
    Per YEAR they will spend 1680
    5 YEARS= 8400
    10 YEARS= 16,800
    What would you buy with this much money??
  • 26. Second Hand smoke
    Mainstream smoking- passes through the tobacco and filter when the smoker inhales
    what a smoker inhales
  • 27. Sidestream smoke- rises from the cigarette when the smoker is not inhaling
    This contains 2x more nicotine and tar, and 5x more CO than mainstream
    Non-smokers who live with smokers have a 20-30% HIGHER risk of dying from heart disorders than non-smokers who live with non-smokers!!!
  • 28. Passive smoker- a person who inhales the sidestream smoke
    smoke inhaled by non-smokers
    Passive smoke can cause:
    Heart disease *Asthma
    Eye irritation *Cancer
    Ear infections

    Does everyone have social support to quit?
    Make sure that those who support you really are supportive, that they don’t nag you when you get cranky.
    Stay away from other tobacco users when on break or socializing as this may tempt you to smoke or dip.
    Don’t let people use tobacco in your home or car.
  • 38. Physical Therapy
    Silver Spike Point Therapy
    Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese medical practice which uses needles placed at specific spots in the skin to treat pain or disease. It is used today to treat addiction to nicotine.

Today's teen-ager is tomorrow's potential regular customer, and the overwhelming majority of smokers first begin to smoke while in their teens. . . .The smoking patterns of teen-agers are particularly important to Philip Morris. . . the share index is highest in the youngest group for all Marlboro and Virginia Slims packings. At least a part of the success of Marlboro Red during its most rapid growth period was because it became the brand of choice among teenagers who then stuck with it as they grew older."
    March 31, 1981 market research report on young smokers titled "Young Smokers Prevalence, Trends, Implications, and Related Demographic Trends”,
    written by Philip Morris researcher Myron E. Johnston and approved by Carolyn Levy and Harry Daniel. Bates No. 000390803
