Today, I’m goin to discuss the negative health impact of smoking (tobacco). Research has shown that smoking is detrimental to health and is the cause of a number of diseases such as cancer, heart disease, and stroke. Individuals who smoke have up to a 4x’s higher risk for coronary heart disease and stroke.
In addition, individuals who smoke also are in a 23 times higher risk of developing lung cancer than individuals who do not smoke. Other health effects from smoking include infertility, stillbirth, low birth weight, and SIDs.
Lastly, I would like everyone to follow the link that will be at the end of this post. The link will take you to a website which lists all 599 ingredients that are in each cigarette. If you happen to smoke, this list may be a wake up call.
