작고 큰 거짓말

담배 기업의 플라스틱 오염이 지구를 파괴하고 있습니다

담배 기업의 담배 필터 사기는 우리 모두를 위험에 빠뜨릴 수 있습니다123. 담배 기업은 미세플라스틱 섬유45로 필터를 만들고, 이는 사실상 아무것도 걸러내지 못합니다6.미세 플라스틱은 우리의 토양, 음식, 물78을 오염시키고, 새로운 연구는 DNA 돌연변이와 관련 있음을 시사합니다9. 또한, 우리의 환경을 파괴하고 당신과 당신이 사랑하는 사람들의 인체로 유입될 수 있습니다10.
이만하면 충분합니다

미세 플라스틱은 작지만 그 영향은 심각합니다11

미세 플라스틱은 5mm 이하의 합성 물질로 깨알 만한 크기입니다.12 청소하기에는 너무 작고 사방에 퍼져있습니다. 담배 기업은13 연간 약 6조 개비의 필터담배를 생산하고 있으며,14 세계적인 플라스틱 위기의 일등 공신입니다.15

플라스틱 필터
각 필터(또는 “꽁초”)는 15,000개 이상의 미세플라스틱 섬유로 만들어졌기 때문에 생분해되지 않습니다.16

[담배] 필터는 인류 문명 역사상 가장 치명적인 사기입니다. 담배 제작 비용을 아끼기 위해 필터를 부착하고, 사람들을 기만하고 있습니다. 필터는 전혀 걸러지지 않습니다. 미국 내에서 매년 40만 명의 흡연자가 담배로 인해 목숨을 잃으며, 담배에는 거의 모두 필터가 부착되어 있습니다.

담배 기업의 치명적인 사기
1940년대와 50년대에 담배의 건강 위험이 명백해짐에 따라 담배 기업은 필터를 추가하여, 해로움을 줄이고 “더 안전한 담배"를 만들겠다고 약속하는 사기 행위를 저질렀습니다.2021 담배 기업은 비용은 저렴하지만, 전혀 효과적이지 않은 플라스틱 재료로 필터를 제작하여 사람들을 속였습니다.2223 필터는 사실상 전혀 걸러지지 않기 때문입니다.24 1951년에는 시중에 유통되는 담배의 1%만이 필터를 사용했고, 1958년에는 거의 절반이 필터를 사용했으며, 1993년에는 거의 모든 담배가 필터를 사용했습니다.25

담배 기업은 필터가 피해를 줄이는 것이 아니라, 담배를 피우기 쉽게 만든다는 것을 깨닫기 시작하면서27 피해 감소 사기 행각을 두 배로 확대했습니다. 1950년대에 화학자 R.J. 레이놀즈는 클로드 티그라는 필터를 흰색에서 갈색으로 바꾸는 "티그 필터"를 개발했습니다.28 색깔의 변화는 사람들을 속여서 필터가 담배의 독성 화학 물질로부터 폐를 보호한다고 믿게 만들었습니다.29

사실, 필터가 어떤 색으로 변하든 실제로 독성 화학 물질30을 걸러내지 않으며 심지어 특정 유형의 폐암과도 관련이 있습니다.31 32 이는 피해 감소에 신경 쓰는 척하는 담배 기업의 더 큰 거짓말입니다33

담배꽁초는 셀룰로스 아세테이트66라고 불리는 미세플라스틱으로 만들어집니다. 미세플라스틱은 우리의 먹이 사슬에 스며들 만큼 충분히 작은 크기입니다.67 미세플라스틱은 식수,68 사과, 브로콜리, 상추,69 해산물70 등에서 발견되었습니다.71

연구에 따르면 인간의 폐,72 혈액,73 대변74에서 미세플라스틱이 발견되었으며, 이는 우리가 이러한 위험 화학물질을 섭취하고 호흡하고 있다는 것을 의미합니다.

저는 담배 기업이 우리 지역사회에 판매하는 담배나 다른 담배 기업이 판매하는 제품들에 대해 신경 쓰지 않는다고 생각합니다. 담배 기업은 단지 돈을 벌고 싶어 할 뿐입니다. 담배 기업은 자신들이 지역사회나 환경에 어떤 책임이 있는지 알고 싶어 하지도, 듣고 싶어 하지도 않습니다. 담배 기업이 제품 판매에 어려움을 겪고, 이익을 얻지 못한다면 자신들이 한 일에 책임을 지고 귀를 기울일 것입니다.
