Hank, you know that you are my boss, a father figure in my life, a mentor, and one of my best friends. I couldn’t ask for anyone better than you and I cannot thank you enough for all the things you have done for me over the last two years. One think that I have noticed though is that you love your smokeless tobacco. Don’t get me wrong, where I come from almost everyone uses tobacco in some type of way, especially in the military, but you mean a lot to me Hank and I want you to be aware of the risk you’re really taking when you use the snus and chewing tobacco.
The crowd is cheering and your state’s baseball team is one point ahead of the opposing team. If the other team doesn’t get at least one player home, you win the World Series. You see your favorite pitcher spit out a green-ish brown blob of something unrecognizable from where you are sitting, but you disregard it and continue watching as he winds up for the potentially winning pitch. What you don’t know is that is by the time the next baseball season rolls around, your favorite player won’t be there in person to celebrate his team’s first win of the season. The esophageal cancer that he obtained from chewing that “green-ish brown blob,” known as chewing tobacco, will be at high risk for spreading throughout his body if he does not treat it, and he can no longer play due to chemotherapy sessions that drain all of his energy. All over the country, athletes just like that pitcher face the same consequences due to their constant chewing of tobacco during sporting events and on the field.

Cigarette smoking has been a favorite past time for many Americans. Since the early 1960s, movie stars, models, and our favorite television shows like the Flintstones presented its main characters smoking cigarettes. Then, people began to get sick; lung cancer, throat cancer, heart diseases, and many other diseases were linked to cigarette smoking. The signs and warnings were everywhere. In 1965, 52 years ago, cigarette cartons began to display warning messages to let smokers know of the danger of smoking. Despite this, the tobacco industry, the first known advertiser in the United States, continues to aggressively find ways to target, intellectually and emotionally with their advertisements, consumers. In 1965, Marlboro ran an ad with Paul Hornung (Green Bay halfback), promoting cigarette smoking, making it seem like the cool thing to do. The ad with Hornung uses the window effect, showing the picture of Hornung looking lay back and relax to make people aspire to become like him. Today, cigarettes have received a facelift, in a recent electronic cigarette ad (Ad two) it shows a woman in an appealing bikini, promoting “blu,” a rechargeable electronic cigarette. The ad makes the cigarette seem edgy, “safer,” and sexy.
