The Truth About Smoking!
Smoking leads to disease and disability and harms nearly every organ of the body.
It’s on record that More than a 90million Nigerians are living with a disease caused by smoking.
For every person who dies because of smoking, at least 30 people live with a serious smoking-related illness.
✅Smoking causes cancer, heart disease, stroke, lung diseases and diabetes.
✅Smoking also increases risk for tuberculosis, certain eye diseases, and problems of the immune system, including rheumatoid arthritis.
✅Secondhand smoke exposure contributes to approximately 900,000 deaths among nonsmoking adults and 40,000 deaths in infants each year.
✅Secondhand smoke causes stroke, lung cancer, and coronary heart disease in adults.
✅Children who are exposed to secondhand smoke are at increased risk for sudden infant death syndrome, acute respiratory infections, middle ear disease, more severe asthma, respiratory symptoms, and slowed lung growth.
It’s Even on Record that Smoking causes around 7 out of every 10 cases of lung cancer (70%).
This means, for every 10 lung cancer cases you hear around or in the news, SMOKERS are 7 out of those 10 persons. It’s that Serious!
