Smoking: Hidden secrets you need to know

Smoking causes many diseases you need to know about.

Though tobacco is linked most strongly with lung cancer per public opinion, it is more likely to lead to heart disease or other health problems.

Smoking has become a practice for many people, and the amount they consume every day doesn’t seem to be wrong to them. Almost every organ in the body is affected by this disease.

Today’s article will show you the diseases caused by smoking.

  1. Heart Disease

Nicotine in cigarettes reduces your cardiovascular oxygen and also increases your cardiac stress. One in five cardiovascular deaths is directly related to smoking.

  1. Stroke

The risk of stroke is doubled by smoking. Smoking leads to a lack of oxygen in the blood and makes the heart work harder, according to the National Stroke Association. This makes it easier for blood clots to form and blocks blood flow to the brain and causes strokes.

  1. Erectile dysfunction

Many studies have found that smoking is a major factor in erectile dysfunction. It causes plaque build-up in the arteries and obstructs blood flow. In one study, men who smoked more than 20 cigarettes a day had a 60% higher risk of developing erectile dysfunction.

  1. Reproductive effects in women

Smoking can cause ectopic pregnancy in women, which is when a fertilized egg implants somewhere other than the uterus. The egg can’t survive and, if left untreated, can be life-threatening for the mother. Smoking also causes reduced fertility, meaning it makes it more difficult to get pregnant.

  1. Lung Cancer

More people die from lung cancer than any other type of cancer. Cigarette smoking is the number one risk factor for lung cancer; it’s responsible for 87 percent of lung cancer deaths. Your chance of still being alive five years after being diagnosed is less than 1 in 5.

  1. COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease)

COPD is an obstructive lung disease that makes it hard to breathe. It causes serious long-term disability and early death. COPD starts by making it hard to be active, such as playing with a grandchild, then usually gets worse, until climbing a short set of stairs or even walking to get the mail is exhausting or impossible.
