Tired of 'quitting smoking'. Let me help you
Read on for some startling medical facts
Cigarette smoke contains more than 4,000 chemical compounds, including cyanide, formaldehyde, and ammonia. Constantly exposing the human body to these toxins, plus the drug nicotine, has serious health consequences.
Your chance of getting lung cancer, (the leading cause of cancer death in men
and women) is 10 times greater than a non-smoker. One in ten smokers will
develop lung cancer. (Feeling lucky today?)
Eighty percent of smokers are eventually diagnosed for emphysema, heart disease
or other smoking related illnesses.
Smokers are 2 to 4 times more likely to get a heart attack than non-smokers and
the heart attack death rate among smokers is 70 percent greater than that of
Older male smokers are more than twice as likely to die from stroke than older
men who do not smoke, and the odds are almost as high for older female smokers.
One out of every five deaths in the U.S. is DIRECTLY related to cigarette
smoking. Annually, smoking claims 430,000 lives in the U.S. compared to 41,000 in
automobile accidents, 19,000 homicides and 17,000 deaths due to AIDS. (Perhaps
the evening news should dispatch reporters to the cancer wards of hospitals
instead of murder scenes to recap the day's events.)
Of the deaths each year attributable to smoking, 29 percent are from lung cancer
and 24 percent are from heart disease.
On average, smokers die seven years earlier than non-smokers.
Smoking is the major cause of mouth, larynx and throat cancer and it is linked
to other cancers as well.
Smokers are more likely to develop chronic bronchitis and emphysema.
Currently women account for 39 percent of all smoking related deaths in the
U.S., a proportion that has more than doubled since 1965.
Children of parents who smoke around the house are far more likely to get
respiratory infections than children from nonsmoking homes.
You don't have to be a heavy smoker to incur major health risks. As few as four
cigarettes daily has been linked to adverse health effects.
Most people that are diagnosed with a smoking-related disease are aware that
smoking is 'bad for you' but are startled to learn the full extent of the
dangers of smoking and are frequently surprised that it happened to 'them'.
Smoking significantly worsens asthma and the effectiveness of asthma medicines
become greatly reduced. In addition, children who grow up in a home where
smoking takes place, are twice as vulnerable to asthmatic attacks.
Smokers are much more susceptible to blood clots (thrombosis) than non-smokers.
The average smoker will develop thrombosis ten years earlier than the average
Smokers are much more likely to develop gangrene of the leg, which is caused by
a gradual closure of the of the large blood vessels carrying blood to the legs.
In its advanced stages, amputation can be the end result.
