P1) Danger is something that a person comes across on a daily basis, smoker or non-smoker. When attending class people have to face the "danger" of the subway or on going traffic on 9th and 10th avenue. even passing by the construction on 10th and 59th can be hazardous. so why not ban all of that?

P2) Tobacco smoke can cause cancer, but so can the sun. Studies even show that sunscreen (recommended to avoid the suns' UV rays can possibly cause cancer itself), as can alcohol to liver cancer or meat or fish to prostate cancer. Diesel exhaust is can even give someone lung cancer if the car that releases the fumes pass by you.

P3) Studies show that smoking cigarettes can potentially lower the risk of Parkinson's disease and obesity. That somehow long-term smokers are protected from Parkinson's disease over those who don't smoke. Cigarette's also tend to eliminate a persons appetite.

C) There should not be a ban on all tobacco products.
