Tobacco and Public Health
For this project, we researched tobacco as a public health issue and created an educational video. We asked “What is tobacco?”. We wanted to show that tobacco is dangerous to your health. There are no safe substances in any tobacco products. From acetone and tar to nicotine and carbon monoxide, all can kill you.
These dangerous substances, which you inhale when you smoke or use other products, don’t just affect your lungs. They can affect your entire body. Public health promotes and protects the health of people and the communities where they live, learn, work and play. Tabacco use is a public health issue because smokers are unaware of the harm tobacco uses causes themselves and those around them.
Many people start smoking at a young age because they did not know how dangerous smoking tobacco is for your body. Public health education on the dangers of using tabacco is important because better education will stop people from starting to smoking or help people quil.
