Humans have been active species for thousands of years and their rate of activity has increased in recent times due to industrialization, overpopulation, and technological advancements. Despite humankind’s success, the planet has suffered drastically from our progression which has created negative repercussions for the earth to endure.
Smoking pollutes the environment in several ways and causes over 480,000 death every year in the US. This means it causes more deaths in the country than HIV AIDS, illegal drug use, motor vehicle injuries, alcohol use, and firearm-related damages combined. Remember, this figure refers to the deaths related to tobacco smoking alone. In the present age, electronic smoking, also known as e-cigarette smoking, is also on the increase, and studies have shown that it might have a more disastrous impact on the environment than tobacco.
