effects include emphysema, lung cancer, throat cancer, and other various types of

cancers. Lung cancer is a very serious disease that kills millions of people every year.

recognizable smell. The smell sticks to all fabric around the smoker, as well as the

smoker?s hair.

generations. Younger children always look up to teenagers as examples and role models.

behavior to mimic. Another effect of teenage smoking is that cigarettes could lead to
