Effects, Politics, and Regulatory Control of Tobacco Use

Effects, Politics, and Regulatory Control of Tobacco Use

Tobacco use is the primary cause of  mortality in the United States today. Tobacco use is responsible for  cancer, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), asthma, and heart  disease and has caused the deaths of nearly half a million people per  year. Tobacco control, prevention, and treatment are compelling and  urgent public health issues. The development of tobacco control laws  have been passed by a number of states.

Write a comprehensive overview of the  health effects, politics, and regulatory control of tobacco use control  efforts. Your paper should be based on the following points:

  • What are the factors (biological, environmental, economic, and  political) that contribute to tobacco addiction? What are the medical  consequences (morbidity and mortality) for tobacco users?
  • What is the public health impact (epidemiological and economic) of tobacco use and secondhand smoke exposure?
  • How do tobacco control regulations relate to positive and normative economics?
  • How do tobacco control regulations impact individual health care
  • What is the public health policy regarding tobacco control? What is  the role of the state and Federal Government in policy making?
  • What is the history of regulatory tobacco control? What is the  current state of tobacco control in the United States (states that have  passed tobacco control regulations)?
  • What is the evidence that tobacco control is effective?

Based on your understanding, create a 6- to  7-page Microsoft Word document that includes the answers to the above  questions. You need a minimum of five scholarly sources that should be  in APA format for both in-text citations and citations on the reference  page.

This assignment requires a title page, an abstract, an introduction, a body, a conclusion, and a reference page.
