Smoking is the main culprit for lung cancer. It has become the most common addiction in the world. Even though people are aware of the harm they are doing to their body – they just can’t stop.
How is Smoking Harmful?
Cigarettes consist of about 600 ingredients and when burned, they release more than 7,000 chemicals. In fact, 69 of these chemicals are toxic and may also trigger cancer.
Moreover, cigarette smoke can also do damage to the body. It contains 4,000 chemicals, 43 of them are carcinogenic (may cause cancer), and 400 of them are toxic. For instance, the following chemicals: nicotine, tar, carbon monoxide, ammonia, hydrogen cyanide, arsenic, formaldehyde, and many others.
Nicotine is able to cause strong addiction. It only needs six seconds to reach the brain. In small amounts, it stimulates the brain. On the contrary, in huge amounts, it reduces brain function and nervous activity. The reason is that it nicotine impedes the signal flow among nerve cells. It can also be a life-threatening poison if over-consumed, which harms hormones, the heart, and the blood vessels.
Furthermore, tar is a mixture of many components that together form a sticky mass in the lungs. The amount of tar in the lungs increases as a cigarette is smoked. Compared to the first puff, the amount of tar is increased twofold in the last puff.
Therefore, if you are a smoker or you have just stopped smoking it would be beneficial for your health to clean your lungs out of nicotine and tar.
