  • Tobacco is an agricultural product processed from the fresh leaves of plants in genus Nicotiana. Tobacco has a long history of use in Native American culture and has played an important part in the foundation of the United States of America going back as far as the Colonists. 
  • Long term tobacco use carries significant risks of developing various cancers as well as strokes, and severe cardiovascular and respiratory diseases. Significantly shorter life expectancies have been associated with tobacco smoking. It has been shown that tobacco may cause lasting brain changes just like morphine or cocaine. Many jurisdictions have enacted smoking bans in effort to minimize possible damage to public health caused by tobacco smoking.
  • The substantially increased risk of developing cancer as a result of tobacco usage seems to be due to the plethora of nitrosamines and other carcinogenic compounds found in tobacco and its residue as a result of anaerobic heating, either due to smoking or to flue-curing or fire-curing. The use of flue-cured or fire-cured smokeless tobacco in lieu of smoked tobacco reduces the risk of respiratory cancers but still carries significant risk of oral cancer.
  • Indian tobacco has become increasingly popular with buyers from around the world. A combination of hard work, improving crop quality and good business sense has seen Indian tobacco's fortunes rise significantly since the crop holiday imposed in 2002 because of the thousands of tons of tobacco left unsold and unwanted in warehouses across the land.
  • India is the world's third largest producer of tobacco (700 million kg per annum), and the fourth largest exporter (163 million kg in 2004-2005). It is the twelfth largest producer of cigarettes (102 billion pieces) and exports to over 100 countries. Tobacco is an important commercial crop grown in an area of around 400,000 hectares, and accounts for around 0.3% of total arable land in the country. It provides direct or indirect employment to nearly 36 million people including 6 million farmers, and contributes around Rs13.6 billion (US$304.5 million) as foreign exchange and Rs70 billion as excise revenue to the national exchequer.
  • Some 130,000 U.S. farms grow tobacco, primarily in the southern states, and for many growers it constitutes their primary cash crop. The U.S. Department of Agriculture includes tobacco in its price support system, both because of its economic significance to the South--it is the seventh-largest U.S. cash crop--and because for many years it has been an important export commodity. American cigarette manufacturers also play a major part in the U.S. economy, earning millions from their domestic and their foreign sales.
  • The tobacco industry has never publicly acknowledged a direct connection between the ingestion of tobacco smoke and the development of such ailments as lung cancer or cardiovascular disease. Although there have been injury suits against cigarette companies, no plaintiff has received damages for injuries suffered after 1969, the year warning labels were first required on cigarette packs. In 1992, however, the Supreme Court ruled that smokers could sue charging fraud if they could prove that a tobacco company concealed information about the hazards of smoking.
  • Nevertheless, the U.S. tobacco industry has maintained its prosperity, nourished by the millions of Americans who continue to use tobacco and by markedly increased consumption in Asia, the Middle East, Eastern Europe, and Russia.
