FC: Smoking Bans
2: How many of you ever had to eat at a restaurant and somebody was smoking while you're eating? Well, now they are trying to ban smoking all over America because there has been a lot of complaints about smoking in public places and now smokers have to smoke outside because people want to eat without cigarette smoke in their face. Smoking in public places should be banned because it would protect the health of others and encourage smokers to smoke less or even quit
4: Reason 1: It would protect the health of others. | The smoking bans, in addition to protecting the health of nonsmokers, also are discouraging young people from taking up the habit.(Wood) | They also are trying to influence others to give it up(Wood).
6: Reason 2: It will encourage smokers to smoke less or even quit.
7: The exposure to E.T.S., brought about when nonsmokers inhale thousands of chemicals during passive smoking.(Smoak) | it may kill as many as 50,000 Americans annually. Examples: 35,000 have died from heart disease, 3000 from lung cancer and about 12,000 from other cancers. (Smoak)
