The Youth Coalition for Alcohol & Other Drug Abuse Prevention is working on a video that they plan to put on You Tube entitled “Shoes to the Cemetery”. This video will show the health consequences of tobacco, including:
• Approximately 425,000 Americans still die each year from tobacco related illnesses.
• 4000 chemical in cigarette smoke – 43 which cause cancer
• 57,000 Americans die annually from second-hand smoke
To do this, they have collected old shoes for use in the video, which will then be donated to the Neighborhood Service Center and other worthwhile charities. The shoes were used to show the path from the hospital to the cemetery, as a result of tobacco products.
