Smoking Effects Experiment

The Medical Forensics Classes were able to learn how the habit of smoking can do serious damage to your lungs. The students were each given a water bottle and some cotton balls, along with a cigarette.

After the cigarette had emitted its contents into the water bottle, the students were able to see all of the tobacco residues the white cotton balls had on them in just a short amount of time.  It was shocking to most of the students how much harm tobacco can do to a person's lungs.

Thank you, Ms. Grant, for all always providing such valuable hands-on learning for your students,
