This paper discusses the lack of ethical considerations of tobacco companies. The writer provides a personal view of the harsh reality of tobacco companies. The statistics are reviewed, methods of promotion are reproached and politicians are blamed for turning a blind eye.

From the Paper:

"Tobacco companies sell death, committing a blatant moral and ethical abomination against mankind. Tobacco companies are the Dr. Jack Kevorkian of the world and what's worse is that our elected officials sanction these activities. They turn a blind eye but eagerly extend their hands to collect the revenues from taxes. Lets face it, tobacco companies shell out a lot of money to politicians and in turn, politicians turn the other cheek as smoking kills almost a half a million people per year in the U.S. alone. Smokers also take out non-smokers at a rate of 3,000 people per year due to exposure to second hand smoke. Nicotine, the main addictive ingredient in tobacco is the cause of many diseases and medical problems, such as emphysema and lung cancer."
