Very good analysis, and may I say you did it a lot briefer then you did before. You identify relevant points which are problematic throughout the passage and sum them up very well. I liked the flow of it all.Nuts whered my answer go? Ok. Well...ten minutes, right? For typing, which on this computer is a bit slower that talking. go...
This article starts out with a reminder of the fairly well accepted fact that smoking has negative health effects, and that quitting smoking is beneficial before going on to discuss so -called natural approaches to quiting smoking by replacing cigarreet smoking with other forms of tobacco use. The article seems to suggest that pipe smoking and cigar smoking are less addictive, although they continue to have significant health risks nearly as high as smoking. The article states that some people belive spit tobacco causes less lung diseases, but notes that it causes more oral health problems including serious diseases such as cancer, and is addictive.
A real problem with this article seems to be that it doesn';t define it's terms: switching from cigarettes to cigars may infact be a strategy some people attenpt to quit cigarrette smoking, but the article doesn't provide any information on whether this leads to quitting smoking, or merely to a different form of smoking. The article doesn't say waht it means when it refers to concepts like "äddictive" (whether they mean physical or psychological dependance), or how they would measure this. I can't tell whether the article is presenting the views that these are forms of smoking cessation, or merely something people attempt, in the way people will try all sorts of ideas. No real comparitive data is presented here and no sources. Is the risk of bronchitis in cigar smokers high compared to the population, or compared to cigareette smokers, etc. No comparitive data or the risks, benefits and success of other quite smoking methods such as nicotine replacement, going cold turkey, cutting down, or pharmacological treatments is given
I think there is something inherently inconsistent is talking about "natural methods to quite smoking", anf then going on to talk about other forms of smoking. There isn't enough information here to make an asset of the risks and benefits of "switching smoking", at best this article describes approaches some people might attempt, and points out that there are risks involved with these forms of tobacco use.
12 minutes,but I got the washing off the ;line midway...
Again like my feedback above, you just need investigate it further. Who knows, this might be real.
Again I should have posted something which had at least some academic quoting stuff to make it seem like it was based on some sort of evidence.
