Deaths from Smoking: 440,000 annual deaths each year are smoking. Death rate extrapolations for USA for Smoking: 440,000 per year, 36,666 per month, 8,461 per… week, 1,205 per day, 50 per hour, 0 per minute, 0 per second. Note: this automatic extrapolation calculation uses the deaths statistic: 440,000 annual deaths each year are smoking-associated (CDC) Deaths information for Smoking: An estimated 400,000 deaths each year are caused directly by cigarette smoking. Life years lost from Smoking: Smoking doesn't just cut a few months off the end of your life. It reduces the life of the average smoker by 12 years. Death statistics for Smoking: The following are statistics from various sources about deaths and Smoking: * Death rate is 2-3 times higher than non-smokers * Estimated to cause 10 million deaths per year worldwide by 2020 (WHO Web Site) * 1.2 million deaths in Europe (The European Heart Network) * 45,000 African American deaths each year in America (CBCF Health Organisation, 2004) * 1.2 million deaths from smoking in Europe (The European Heart Network, 2000) * 400,000 deaths annually in the US
The number of deaths of persons with an AIDS diagnosis has stabilised in recent years at around 17,000-18,000 per year." So that means about 46-49 people die every day (assumi…ng a 365-day year). In related statistics, about 154 people a day in the US are infected (again, assuming a 365-day year), or over six people every single hour.
More than 4500 people die annually from smoking related causes in NZ and it is the leading cause of preventable deaths. Lifetime smokers have a 50% chance of being killed by s…moking and loose and average of 14 life years. The World Health Oganisation estimates that around 9% of deaths worldwide are directly attributable to smoking. -All information given in population health paper at the University of Auckland.
Approximately 1,379,400 people died in US hospitals in 2007, the most recent year for which statistics are available. This averages roughly 3,779.2 deaths per day. The month…s with the highest overall death rate are January, March and December; the month with the lowest death rate is September. July is considered a dangerous month for hospital admission because it's the beginning of the residency year for new doctors. According to the CDC's National Vital Statistics Report for 2007, total deaths from all causes that year was 2,420,000. A 2004 report estimated 57% of all deaths occurred in hospitals: 48% (1,161,600) died while admitted as in-patients, and another 9% (217,800) died in emergency rooms. The National Vital Statistics Report estimated approximately 90,000 (6.5%) in-hospital deaths per year from a combination of hospital-acquired infection and medical error, contradicting other sources' estimates ranging anywhere from 44,000 - 98,000 deaths (method of analysis unknown). The total number of patient discharges in 2007, excluding newborn infants, was approximately 34.4 million.
11,000 people die each year from fatal gunshot wounds. If you do the math, that works out to about 30 people every day.
Answer 1: Anyone can name a dozen people who have died from primary smoking, because it really does kill people. So if Second-hand smoke really kills people too, it should …be possible to identify at least a couple of them. So I ask, can you name three or four people who have died from second hand smoke?" The numbers usually thrown around are 3,000 deaths per year directly from second hand smoke and another 63,000 deaths associated with second-hand smoke. Strange. Over a million deaths in the past twenty years, and yet, no one can't name a single person. We are also told that each cigarette you smoke takes 13 minutes off your life. Thirteen minutes? Not nine, not fourteen, but precisely thirteen? Those are the kind of nonsense numbers no real scientist would be quoting. A real scientist would say something like "cigarettes increase the risk of dying prematurely." No one can argue that, because that's a real, honest to goodness fact. But smoking seems to have no effect on some people (everyone knows someone who lived to be 90+ while smoking several packs a day) and a devastating effect on others. The fact is there has never been a documented death related to second hand smoke. None! Zero! Answer 2: Zero. Plenty of people have died from smoking, but not a one from second hand smoke. It's all rubbish that schools and media feed you. You are probably a smoker that doesn't want people to think second hand smoke kills people. You are both idiots that looks for all of the reasons why people should stop smoking and you try to make them false. I know that second hand smoke is dangerous for a fact. One, if you knew that it was dangerous, FOR A FACT, you would have listed it. Two, I know for a fact that smoking is bad for the person who smokes. But second hand smoke is a campaign to try to get people to quit smoking through more guilt. There is no evidence that it exists. Answer 3: It is estimated that 53,000 Americans actually DIE from second-hand smoke every year. This includes babies who die from crib death, husbands or wives of smokers, who die from heart attacks or lung cancer from their spouse's smoke, and children who died from untreatable pneumonia, which could have been prevented if the parents were not smoking in the home. Thousands of workers die from being exposed to smoke in the workplace. Answer 4: First of all, you can't smoke in the workplace anymore. As far as the other statistics, there are no studies, and no actually evidence linking it to second hand smoke. Millions of people get pneumonia and some of them will die, but not necessarily because there is a smoker in their life. Until there is a definite link, it's all just hype. Sorry. That's not real evidence. Answer 5: Coincidence does not equal cause. Just because someone hangs around smokers and gets lung cancer does not mean the second hand smoke caused the cancer. Just like with most cancers, there are multiple ways to get it. Although primary smoke does unquestionably cause cancer and is responsible for most cases of lung cancer, it is not the only cause. Answer 6: Do you know what second-hand smoke is? Second-hand smoke is the combination of the smoke that the smoker exhales and the smoke from the unfiltered lit end of the cigarette. This smoke has more than 4000 chemicals and more than 60 carcinogens. According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, there is no safe level of exposure to second-hand smoke. Obviously people think first-hand smoke is more dangerous but first-hand smoke is classified as only the smoke being inhaled from the filtered end of the cigarette. A smoker, however, is at a higher risk to lung cancer and of that sort because he/she is inhaling first-hand smoke and second-hand smoke. There is no doubt that second-hand smoke is poisonous gas. There are people who die from second-hand smoke and you better start believing it. Zero people dying from second-hand smoke? Really? Answer 7 The 53,000 deaths reported by the CDC was summed using the idea that, "Anyone who catches lung cancer, asthma, or any other disease related to smoking is considered a second hand smoke victim." The EPA, CDC, and US Surgeon General are definitely using scare tactics which is obvious when the Surgeon General made the ridiculous statement, "There is no safe distance from second hand smoke". There is also no safe number of stairs you can climb without being in danger of falling. Goes without saying. Every scientific case study done on second hand smoke either concludes that it's link to lung cancer and other smoking related illness is either non existent or too small to be scientifically significant. The link to the actual case studies are below. I welcome challenges to the evidence, but please restrain from making general quotes it just wastes everyone's time on such a polluted subject and caries no weight without the scientific information behind it. Please post links to actual evidence in scientific case studies. - British Medical Journal Case Study World Health Organization "Conclusions: Our results indicate no association between childhood exposure to ETS and lung cancer risk. We did find weak evidence of a dose-response relationship between risk of lung cancer and exposure to spousal and workplace ETS. There was no detectable risk after cessation of exposure.[JNatlCancerInst1998;90:1440-50]"
