Good afternoon to everyone. I am Ayushi Vashisth. I am in favor of this motion, smoking should be banned in public places. Smoking is not good for health.
<div>There is no dearth of scientific studies that prove the myriad harmful and life-threatening effects of smoking. Smoking affects lungs, causes many respiratory diseases, causes lung cancer, heart disease, and chewing tobacco can also cause mouth cancer. The list of maladies caused by this vicious habit is endless and alarming. Not only does smoking harm the smoker, but it also endangers non-smokers. Research studies show that non-smokers are severely and more adversely affected by the side smoke or the smoke exhaled by smokers. As the lungs of non-smokers are not accustomed to the toxic fumes, it is more dangerous to them than to the smokers whose lungs become adjusted to the level of toxins over the years. The phenomenon of inhaling smoke produced by others is called passive smoking. Passive smoking is a leading cause of respiratory diseases, headache, asthma, cough, irritation in eyes, and many more. It is hazardous to the health of innocent people who don’t even smoke. That’s why smoking should be banned in public places.</div>
