Smoking should be illegal because… it pollutes the environment. Tobacco has also killed many people in the world. In the USA alone, smoking kills 432,000 people each year. Second hand, smoke kills 41,000 people per year. It affects people around smokers here are the ways, second-hand smoke can give lung cancer to people who have never smoked. It is more likely that someone will get heart disease‚ to have a heart attack‚ and die early because of second-hand smoke. Breathing problems like coughing‚ extra phlegm‚ wheezing‚ and shortness of breath can be just the beginning. Secondhand smoke is especially dangerous for children, babies, and women who are pregnant. Women who breathe smoke while pregnant are more likely to have babies with lower birth weight than women who do not breathe in smoke. Babies who breathe secondhand smoke after birth have more lung infections than babies that don’t. Secondhand smoke causes kids who already have asthma to have more frequent and severe attacks. Children exposed to secondhand smoke are more likely to develop bronchitis, pneumonia, and ear infections and are at increased risk for sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS). It also is terrible for the people who smoke. It can especially bad for your lungs coughing, wheezing, colds are just the start, soon enough those effects will turn into pneumonia, emphysema, and lung cancer and those are only the ways smoking affects your lungs smoking impacts your brain, your heart, your stomach, your skin, your bones, your blood. Here are the ways it affects your blood. Makes your blood thicker and increases chances of clot formation, Increases your blood pressure and heart rate, making your heart work harder than average. Narrow your arteries, reducing the amount of oxygen-rich blood circulating to your organs. These are only some ways it affects your blood the ways it affects your brain is if you smoke, you are more likely to have a stroke than someone who doesn't smoke. For instance, Smoking increases your risk of having a stroke by at least 50%, which can cause brain damage and death. And, by smoking, you double your risk of dying from a stroke. One way that smoking can increase your risk of a stroke is by increasing your chances of developing a brain aneurysm. This is a bulge in a blood vessel caused by a weakness in the blood vessel wall. This can rupture or burst which will lead to a severe condition known as a subarachnoid hemorrhage, which is a type of stroke and can cause extensive brain damage and death. The ways it affects your heart is Smoking harms your heart and your blood circulation, increasing the risk of conditions such as coronary heart disease, heart attack, stroke, peripheral vascular disease damaged blood vessels, and cerebrovascular disease damaged arteries that supply blood to your brain. Carbon monoxide from the smoke and nicotine both put a strain on the heart by making it work faster. They also increase your risk of blood clots. Other chemicals in cigarette smoke damage the lining of your coronary arteries, leading to the furring of the arteries. In fact, smoking doubles your risk of having a heart attack, and if you smoke, you have twice the risk of dying from coronary heart disease than lifetime non-smokers. The ways it affects your stomach are Smokers have an increased chance of getting stomach cancer or ulcers. Smoking can weaken the muscle that controls the lower end of your gullet (esophagus) and allows acid from the stomach to travel in the wrong direction back up your throat, a process known as reflux. Smoking is a significant risk factor for developing kidney cancer.
The way it affects your skin is smoking reduces the amount of oxygen that gets to your skin. This means that if you smoke, your skin ages more quickly and looks grey and dull. The toxins in your body also cause cellulite. Smoking prematurely ages your skin by between 10 and 20 years and makes it three times more likely you'll get facial wrinkling, particularly around the eyes and mouth. Smoking even gives you a sallow, yellow-grey complexion and hollow cheeks, which can cause you to look gaunt. The ways it affects your bones are Smoking can cause your bones to become weak and brittle. Women need to be especially careful, as they are more likely to suffer from brittle bones (osteoporosis) than non-smokers.
