The Never Ending Dangers Of Smoking

Dangers Of Smoking

Every day smokers are given new reasons to quit smoking and they are valid ones.

There are the obvious ones such as lung cancer and heart disease, but this is only the beginning of a long list.

This list, as any novice researcher will attest to are the effects of not just nicotine but the effects of many additives that make up the composition of the modern tobacco products, such as cigarettes.

Some people might be surprised that cigarettes additives are not regulated. It is bad enough to deal with the side effects of nicotine alone, which it is now believed is the cause of Buerger’s disease.

Smoking is Linked to More Than Symptoms of Lung Cancer

Smoking Linked to Lung Cancer

It’s believed that smoking is responsible for 80% to 90% of all symptoms of lung cancers.

But now a new study shows that smoking (including dangerous secondhand smoke) might also contribute to other, non-lung cancers, more so than anyone ever thought before.

Using data from the National Center for Health Statistics, a team of researchers compared death rates from lung cancer to death rates from other cancers and found that smoking may have led to over 70% of cancer deaths among men.

How Does Smoking Cause Lung Cancer?

Smoking and Lung Cancer

Smoking and lung cancer are almost always considered synonymous with each other, and there is a lot of truth in that.

In fact, tobacco’s increased risk of developing cancer in the lungs is one of the most basic harmful effects on health known.

How does smoking cause cancer?

Cigarette smoke is laden with chemicals that act as poisons for the body. Upon inhalation, these poisonous chemicals enter the bloodstream, from where they lead to various diseases, including cancer.

The lungs, of course, remain the most easily affected organ.

The Deadly Effects of Tobacco

The Surgeon General said: “Cigarette smoking is the major single cause of cancer mortality in the United States.”

This statement was made back in 1982 and unfortunately, according to the powers-that-be, it is still true today. The thing is, these deaths are preventable. Smoking is an acquired habit.

Cancer is not the only harmful health danger of smoking.

As a matter of fact, a little less than half of the deaths directly linked to tobacco use by researchers are caused by heart disease, aneurysms, bronchitis, emphysema, and stroke, and it makes pneumonia and asthma worse.
