Smoking kills! See how!

A considered percent of humans smoke. Lets's see the result on their health!

Smoking it kills for sure. Smoking reduces your stamina, it make you feel tired and defenseless. Out of addiction one smoke again and again but slowly slowly it capture on your heart and lungs. It make a male impotent and female has chances to lose their fertility. I am not good at writing thing but still i have tried some, to show different type of effects of smoking.

Head to toe - smoking effects can be seen on each part of your body. Let's go step by step and find out the dangerous smoking effects on your body.

Let's begin from the top i.e. your hair. Smoking effects can be felt on your hair. You hair becomes smelly and stained due to instant smoking effects. Slow hair growth, thinning and graying of hair is also believed to be a direct smoking effect. Your hair will look and feel lifeless and dull.

Passive smoking: A Way to kill your loved one :

Passive smoking can be annoying and repulsive for two reasons – you hate smokers, or you’re trying to quit. Worse case scenario, your girlfriend threatens to walk out if you don’t quit. That the ban on smoking in public places has a lot of support from the masses should be clue enough; smoking affects you and the people around you. Even if your child, friend, wife, husband, girlfriend or boy friend has no issue with you puffing smoke, you are actually killing him/her softly.
 Smoking and Pregnancy:
Smoking and pregnancy don't mix. Smoking while pregnant not only puts your own health at risk, but your unborn baby’s health as well. Cigarettes contain dangerous chemicals, including nicotine, carbon monoxide, and tar. It has been proven that smoking significantly increases the risk of numerous pregnancy complications, some of which can be fatal for the mother or baby. 
Smoking effects on brain are highly dangerous. Blockage of carotid artery may cut off the blood supply to the brain cells, which results in stroke (cerebral thrombosis). Blood thickening and clotting are also serious smoking effects and smokers are 1.5 times more likely to have stroke as compared to non-smokers.
Dangerous smoking effects on eyes include common eye diseases such as Graves' ophthalmopathy, age- related mascular degeneration, glaucoma and cataract. The worst smoking effect on eyes can be permanent blindness.

Second-hand smoke and children:

Children are even more at risk because of their smaller lungs and the fact that their bodies are still developing.
Second-hand smoke can affect babies before they’re even born – toxins from the smoke can get into the mother’s bloodstream during pregnancy and reach the baby that way.
Exposing a child to second-hand smoke before or after birth makes a baby:
  • twice as likely to suffer from colic
  • more than twice as likely to get meningitis
  • three times more likely to die from cot death

Smoking effects on your nose can rob you of your sense of smell.

Teeth and Gums
Do you ever wonder why your teeth are so yellow and stained? Do your gums bleed every morning you wake up? Well, it's because of the direct smoking effect on your teeth. Also smoking effects are not limited to the appearance of your teeth but also results in plaque, loose teeth, gum disease and gingivitis.

Mouth and Throat
All cancers associated with the larynx, oral cavity and esophagus are fatal smoking effects. The less dangerous smoking effects are reduced sense of taste, sore throat and smelly breath.
Poor blood circulation which leads to cold fingers, tar stained fingers, peripheral vascular disease and amputation due to gangrene are some of the heart-wrenching smoking effects.

Lungs and Respiratory System
The most dreaded lung cancer, feeling out of breath, colds and flu, pneumonia, asthma, cough and sputum, tuberculosis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, chronic bronchitis and emphysema, phew... are all smoking effects which will more or less make your life hell.
Two immediate smoking effects on heart and circulation are an increase in your heartbeat rate and a sharp rise in blood pressure.
Long term smoking effects are increase in the blood cholesterol and fibrinogen levels and increase in chances of having a heart attack. Smoking effects on your heart leads to coronary heart disease, aneurysm, peripheral vascular disease, stroke etc.

Digestive System
Smoking effects are heartburn, peptic ulcers, Crohn's disease, gallstones and stomach cancer.
Wrinkles, capillaries and premature ageing and scarring are few smoking effects on skin.
Legs and Feet
Beurger's disease, leg pain and gangrene are painful smoking effects.
