Hello everyone ~

I'm going to talking about an evil influence of drinking, smoking, meat-eating on our health today.
I am twenty years old and a freshmen of the University now.
Actually, looking around the people nowadays, majority of my boy friends (just 'boy' friends) really love drinking, smoking and meat-eating.
But I think that it is very very dangerous thing.
On my way to school this morning, I received one leaflet which carries the statistics of drinking, smoking, meat-eating.
Always I have estimated the harmful effect of those.
However the result which was printed on the paper was better than I have expected.
I'll give you the terrible statistic data of the drinking and smoking on the leaflet.


Below are the statistic result.


* Damage which was caused by alcohol.

Life - the number of deaths all over the world : one million-eight-hundred-
thousand people every year
reduction of life which was on account of drinking :
sixty million years every year
Violence - the relation between drinking and violence
child abuse : 50%
an act of violence : 40-80%
suicide : 20-50%
Brain damage -
temporary loss of memory, sleep troubles, amnesia, dementia etc.
Disease -
an eye, the liver, the heart, the kidney, the gullet, the stomach etc.
Congenital impediment -
mental retardation, fetus alcohol syndrome, abortion etc.


* Damage which was caused by smoking.

Life -
the number of deaths all over the world : five million people every year
reduction of life on account of drinking : sixty million years every year
Health -
disease : the lungs, the pharynx, the larynx, the brain, the skin, the
oral cavity, the stomach, the pancreas etc.
Family - the bigger casualties because of secondhand smoking
sons and daughters would have asthma, newborn baby sudden
death syndrome, bronchial trouble, tympanitis

I don't know how you can put meat-eating with smoking and drinking.

Oh, Thank you for your comment. I'm really sorry about that.
The leaflet which I got this morning is made by the company which sells vegetable diet products. So I guess they would wanted to emphasis the superiority of vegetable-eating. That is, they regard the dangerousness of meat-eating as those of smoking or drinking...
