    Smoking causes lung cancer. Lung cancer is the number one cancer among men. Ninety percent[90%] of the people who get lung cancer die. Smokers have six times as much cancer of the mouth, tongue, and throat as nonsmokers. Smokers have twice as much heart disease. Smoking gives people breathing problems. It harms the stomach. Smoking causes one million early deaths in the world every year.Throughout the world, women live longer than men. Why? Because men smoke most. Nonsmoking men live just as long as women. Smokers pollute the air. They breathe out 100 times more polluted air than nonsmokers. They breathe it out on their children and their wives or husbands. Children whose parents smoke have more breathing and lung problems than other children. Among nonsmoking women married to smokers, there are twice more deaths from lung cancer than they are among women married to nonsmokers. Men have the right to kill themselves by smoking if they want to. They do not have the right to kill their wives and children by smoking. Smokers are absent form work more. Factories and businesses lose millions of dollars every year because of smokers. Smokers have higher medical bills. All of those facts, from research, show that smoking is bad. So why do people smoke?

    There`s something wrong with the last but one sentence, but I can`t figure out what. I`ll think it over.
