WHY SMOKING IS DANGEROUS TO YOUR LUNGS

Smoking Related Diseases

Smoking can cause many different diseases. Here is information on some of them.

Emphysema
Emphysema is a dangerous disease of the lungs. What happens is that the lungs turn black from the tar in cigarettes, and the air sacs inside the lung loose their elasticity (abiliy to stretch), making it harder and harder to breathe. Emphysema causes a slow and painful death. The victim eventually dies from suffocation. There is no cure for emphysema.

Lung Cancer
Lung cancer is the largest cause of cancer deaths among men and women in the United States. Most often, Lung Cancer is caused by smoking. When someone inhales the smoke, chemicals and tars that make up tobacco stay in the air passages of the lungs. With every puff, the lungs are being irritated. Tar begins to collect on the mucous membrane, paralyzing the cilia (hairlike structures), that otherwise keep air passages clean. Cancer develops in the lungs when too many unnecessary cells begin to grow. These cells grow with time, eventually causing mass tissue to form, otherwise known as a tumor. Lung Cancer often spreads to other parts of the body, including the surrounding lung structure, lymph nodes, esophagus, gums, larynx, bladder, pancreas or kidney. Lung Cancer can also spread to other organs of the body, such as the brain, liver or bones. These cancer cells are passed to other parts of the body by way of the bloodstream.

Gingivitis
[font=comic sans ms"]Gingivitis is an inflamation of the gums, which is caused by the tar in tobacco (mainly smokeless tobacco). It may result in tooth loss. Smokers have three times the risk of cavities and losing their teeth than non smokers do.

Gangrene
Gangrene is the death of tissue due to lack of oxygen in the blood. Smoking contributes to gangrene because it decreases the amount of available oxygen. This happens when Hemoglobin carries carbon monoxide instead of oxygen. Gangrene can result in the loss of a limb(s), fingers, and toes.
