Personally, I’ve always believed that the smoking age and drinking age should have always been the same “21”. Why would you have two different ages? It never made sense to me. I’ve never understood why people ever wanted to do something that could so drastically change the health of their heart, which in turn changes their total health. Smarten up people. Aspire to “Live long, Live strong”.
On the way to Braintree with my family for some fun at Dave and Busters, a news bulletin came flashing across my iPad about a 4 alarm fire on South Street in Jamaica Plain. The 2 1/2 story home which was the homestead for generations of families had started due to a cigarette. There was $350,000 in damage. The owner and her boyfriend along with their 4 first floor Tenants have been displaced and are being assisted by the Red Cross. See more details here
According to the National Fire Protection Association Cigarette fires cause close to 1,000 deaths and 3,000 injuries each year in the US. Fires started by cigarettes account for over 20% of all fire deaths, cigarettes are the nations largest single cause of such deaths. Half a billion dollars worth of property is also lost to these types of fires. Approximately $4 billion dollars accounts for the economic costs in health care and productivity losses, and the human costs of pain and suffering. This information was reported in 2000 by a student named Max Tawadrous. I’m almost certain that these totals have risen significantly through the years.
