Addiction is just too profitable to give up: Infographic on the effects of nicotine and tobacco

 

 

Thanks to #LoveInfographics for this one. Following on from yesterday’s press on Big Tobacco pushing e-cigarettes, this graphic illustrates the impact of the nicotine, although it doesn’t show what side-effects are due to nicotine, and which are due to tobacco smoke.

That said, we can be sure that the $6,000 profit that Big Tobacco makes from each smoker in their lifetime will continue to reward shareholders and contribute to their daily $23 million marketing spend – and that’s just in the US! No wonder so many people are addicted. (Infographic is large so will take time to resolve).

    I’d like to see a similar infographic with vaping .
    Understood that there are a lot of variables (products probably vary in nicotine content, users vape in a wide range of nicotine “units” a day, etc)
    Still, thinking it might be useful.
