Everyone knows that smoking is harmful to health. Every year, millions of people in world die from smoking or second hand smoke.
The hazards of the old-fashioned talks are not repeated.
Today we want to tell you about the “cold knowledge of smoking” that few people know but before knowing few facts and knowledge about quitting smoking let’s check effects after quitting smoking, You must prepare yourself before quit.
At least 78 clear carcinogens in the smoke:
Everyone knows that there are many carcinogens in cigarettes, and smoking can cause lung cancer. But how many carcinogens are there in the smoke?
According to the current research results, cigarettes contain 93 kinds of clear toxic substances, and 78 kinds are clear carcinogens (such as nitrosamines, benzopyrene, and various radioisotopes).
Think about this number before you smoke next time…
Quit smoking, very, very, very money-saving
The money saved by smoking cessation is definitely not just the money to buy cigarettes. How much is saved? Let me listen slowly.
Scientific statistics show that the earlier the smoking cessation, the better the effect. Assume that all smoke from the age of 18, estimated:
Quit smoking between the ages of 25 and 34, and live an average of 10 years;
Smoking cessation between the ages of 35 and 44, an average of 9 years of live;
Smoking cessation between 45 and 54 years old, with an average of 6 years of living;
Quit smoking between 55 and 64 years old, and live an average of 4 years.
We love to say that “life is priceless.” In fact, from the perspective of medical care, life is “valuable.”
For example, the price of the latest anticancer drugs is very expensive. The cost of a treatment is easily more than $36,000 and the average life is extended for 2 to 10 months. According to the average of 6 months, the quality of 12 months a year. Life is worth more than $100,000.
Ordinary people quit smoking between the ages of 25 and 34, and live for 10 years, which is equivalent to saving 1 million dollar!
Smoking is the main cause of death:
Cancer accounts for only 1/3
Cancer, especially lung cancer, is the leading cause of death from cigarettes, but only 1/3, and the remaining 2/3 are mainly divided by cardiovascular disease and lung disease.
Smoking can cause cardiovascular diseases such as stroke, acute heart disease, and coronary heart disease. These cardiovascular diseases are ignored by countless young people.
Have you heard the unfortunate news of young people dying? In fact, in addition to lifestyle unhealthy, genetic factors and other reasons, long-term smoking, including being poisoned by second-hand smoke, is also a factor that cannot be ignored.
Statistics show that 46% of young adults aged 30 to 44 who died of cardiovascular disease in China are related to smoking.
Various lung diseases are also one of the main causes of death from cigarettes, especially chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), which is characterized by shortness of breath, cough and cough, which become more and more serious over time.
Every year, 3 million people worldwide die from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, of which 1.2 million are caused by smoking.
The harm of cigarettes is far more serious than that of you.
Second-hand smoke is much more harmful than smog:
The smog is undoubtedly harmful, but purely from the lethality, smog is far worse than second-hand smoke.
The latest large-scale study shows that among the factors that cause cancer, outdoor air pollution (haze) is not even ranked in the top five, and there are five more serious factors. The first one is smoking.
Since children are not yet mature, second-hand smoke affects them far more than adults, so parents should avoid bringing children to any smoky places, such as mahjong rooms, Internet cafes, etc.
Second-hand smoke is equally harmful to adults, and the risk of certain cancers, cardiovascular diseases and respiratory diseases increases.
About 70% of adults are exposed to a second-hand smoke environment every week, including offices, buses, restaurants, entertainment venues, etc. Therefore, a total ban on smoking in public places is imperative.
For the sake of your own body and for the freedom of others to be harmless, smokers are better off starting smoking today!
