 Can Nanotechnology Help Smokers?    Everyone has either done it, is doing it, or wants to do it. We’re talking about smoking. It’s easy to start smoking but, as the smokers amongst us know, it’s very difficult to stop. While all of us are inundated with the horrifying facts about smoking, the truth remains that most smokers simply sweep this information under the carpet, and continue enjoying this habit, even if it means taking a step closer to death with every puff of smoke. Solid Facts About Smoking Despite my resolve not to share the gory details about how smoking is affecting the world population at large, and the Americans in specific, I think it’s time we faced some truths. 1. Did you know that cigarette smoking is the single most known reason for premature deaths in the US and across the globe? Believe it, more than 440,000 Americans die each year due to diseases caused by smoking cigarettes. 2. The US spends more than $150 billion on health care cases related to smoking alone, every year. This figure is likely to increase year after year. 3. Did you know that when you puff on a cigarette you breathe in 4, 800 chemicals out of which 69 are responsible for causing cancer? 4. It’s not just the men who suffer health consequences from smoke, almost 40% smoking-related deaths happen in women. 5. Americans spent over $90billion on products containing tobacco in 2006 out of which approx. $84 billion was spent on buying cigarettes, while $3.4 billion was used on cigars and the remaining $2.5 billion was paid towards buying chewing tobacco or smokeless tobacco. 6. Can you guess how many cigarettes were sold in the US in the year 2009? 315 billion, that’s how many! Needless to suggest, that smoking is like a virus that is slowing eating away at the country’s economy, the health of its citizens, as well as their well-being.
