Tobacco Smoking kills

Tobacco smoking is enormously harmful to your health. Smoking harms nearly every organ of the body. Some of these harmful effects are immediate. According to American Lung Association, Cigarettes contain about 600 ingredients. When they burn, they generate more than 7,000 chemicals. Many of those chemicals are poisonous and at least 69 of them can cause cancer. Both men and women who smoke may have difficulty achieving orgasm and are at higher risk of infertility.  Experts say that the nicotine, carbon monoxide and other toxic substances in cigarettes weakened our bones. Research has shown that people who smoke cigarettes victims of pain in bones. Smokers have more muscle aches and pains than non-smokers. Smoking adversely affects the performance of our stomach. This may increase the risk of Stomach diseases. Smoking also increases risk of cancer of the mouth, throat, larynx, and esophagus. Smokers have higher rates of kidney cancer and pancreatic cancer. Even cigar smokers who don’t inhale are at increased risk of mouth cancer. Smoking also has an effect on insulin, making it more likely that you’ll develop insulin resistance. That puts you at increased risk of type 2 diabetes. When it comes to diabetes, smokers tend to develop complications at a faster rate than nonsmokers. Smoking causes inflammation in the small airways and tissues of your lungs. This can make your chest feel tight or cause you to wheeze or feel short of breath. Smoking destroys the tiny air sacs, or alveoli, in the lungs that allow oxygen exchange. When you smoke, you are damaging some of those air sacs. Alveoli don’t grow back, so when you destroy them, you have permanently destroyed part of your lungs. When enough alveoli are destroyed, the disease emphysema develops. Emphysema causes severe shortness of breath and can lead to death. Restricted blood flow can affect a man’s ability to get an erection. Both men and women who smoke may have difficulty achieving orgasm and are at higher risk of infertility. Some of the more obvious signs of smoking involve the skin. The substances in tobacco smoke actually change the structure of your skin. Smoking causes skin discoloration, wrinkles, and premature aging. Smoking causes physical changes in the eyes that can threaten your eyesight. Nicotine from cigarettes restricts the production of a chemical necessary for you to be able to see at night. Also, smoking increases your risk of developing cataracts and muscular degeneration (both can lead to blindness). Smoking raises blood pressure and puts stress on heart. It makes blood thick and sticky. Smoking increases the amount of cholesterol and unhealthy fats. The stickier the blood, the harder the heart must work to move it around your body. Carbon monoxide from inhaled cigarette smoke also contributes to a lack of oxygen, making the heart work even harder. This increases the risk of heart disease, including heart attacks.
