Communications 102 19:51 Health Three major health problems: Tobacco, poor diet/exercise, alcohol consumption Tobacco: o Costs: Costs a pack-a-day smoker over $1,500/year.  Costs the U.S. over $97.2 billion/year in health care and lost  productivity. Nicotine increases the body's need for oxygen, but carbon monoxide  kicks oxygen out of the blood. Gum disease; tooth loss. Wrinkles skin. Causes peripheral vascular disease, which can result in amputation. Female smokers have a higher infertility rates. Male smokers have less  sperm and more difficulty maintaining erections.  Smoking increases heart rate up to 36,000 beats a day, produces  irregular heart beats, constricts blood vessels, increases blood  pressure 10 to 15% — risks for heart disease. Pack-a-day smokers smear one cup of tar over their respiratory tracts  each year. But finally, smoking just kills people… 1 in 3 of smokers die from smoking-related diseases. 1 in 5 deaths in the U.S. caused by smoking. Each  day  smoking kills 1,200 Americans. Chewing tobacco can kill too o Second hand smoke causes: 37,000 heart disease deaths 3,000 lung cancer deaths
