A table is placed down with an emoji of a healthy pair of pink lungs on it.
Voiceover: For one, smoking can cause both immediate and long-term damage. The chemicals in cigarette smoke reach your lungs quickly every time you inhale. Your blood then carries the toxic chemicals to every organ in your body.
Four hands place down four phones next to the tablet. Each phone has a different healthy organ on them. The lungs start to glitch. Four arrows appear pointing the flitching lungs to each phone with an organ on it. Each organ starts to glitch.
Voiceover: Smoking can damage and destroy cilia – the tiny hairs that line your airways and sweep out mucus and dirt to keep your lungs clear. Once you lose enough cilia from smoking, you get “smokers’ cough.”
The tablet is removed. All the screens go black. The four phones now show different screens. The top phone on the left and the bottom phone on the right show cigarette smoke. The other two opposite phones show lung cilia. Two more phones in between these are added. One has destroyed cilia and one has more cigarette smoke. The smoke keeps going through the phones. The cilia phones are removed. All of the smoke phones are moved to the side and the table is put down with a drawing of a person. The person starts coughing and the drawing moves along with these coughs.
Voiceover: Teens who smoke can develop smaller, weaker lungs that never grow to their potential size and never perform at maximum capacity. If your lungs can’t perform to full capacity, you can’t either. And the effects on lungs don’t stop there.
The person is replaced with a drawing of lungs. The lungs look like the low battery sign on a phone. The lungs have a small part of red at the bottom and the lightning bolt power sign with the iPhone charge cable underneath to show that they need to be charged. The red flashes in the lungs. The lungs are filled up with red. The tablet is removed. The table is placed down with pictures of tiny healthy pink emoji lungs.
Voiceover: Of every 100 lung cancer deaths, over 80 are the result of smoking. Cigarette smokers are up to 20 times more likely to develop lung cancer than nonsmokers. 80 of the lungs are covered with cigarette smoke and turn a dark purple. “20X” appear on screen over the damaged lungs.
Voiceover: Here’s the good news. If you stay away from cigarettes, you can save your lungs from the deadly effects of smoking.A hand comes in and swipes the table screen. A finger clicks and a pair of healthy pink emoji lungs next to a dirty cigarette pack shows up. The cigarette pack shakes and disappears. The lungs go to the center of the screen.
