Drop the information about the impact of tobacco to their health to avoid
offending the listeners.
Smoking Tobaccos can increase the risk of heart disease, including stroke, heart attack,
vascular disease, and aneurysm. Cardiovascular disease is responsible for 40 percent
of all smoking-related deaths. Smoking is also linked to many other major health
conditions including rheumatoid arthritis, inflammation, and impaired immune function.
Even young smokers aged 26 to 41 report reduced health-related quality of life
compared with nonsmoking peers, according to a cross-sectional population study.
Recent animal research also identified a pathway between the pancreas and a part of
the brain active in nicotine intake, potentially linking cigarette smoking to the risk of
developing Type 2 Diabetes.
B. Mention the issue but downplay it and recommend that listeners do
research and decide for themselves.
