Smoking kills.

Hello everyone and welcome,
I am writing this post now after a long gap of time as I was sick very badly. I have picked up a topic I.e., smoking which has been slow-killing innumerable people globally.

Tobacco kills irrespective of religion, culture,gender and age. In order to create awarness regarding the hazardous effects of tobacco, an initiative was started in 1987 by the WHO.

Tobacco is the main ingredient of cigarette and there are over 4000 chemical compounds created by burning cigarettes,69 of them are known  to cause cancer as well as damage the heart and its blood vessels. 6 of these chemicals and their actual usage and side effects are listed below:

     which when reaches your brain triggers adrenaline,
     by increasing your blood pressure and gives you a
     high.It is a chemical that makes you addictive to
2. Arsenic:  A common chemical used in rat poison.
     Exposure to high levels of arsenic can be fatal.
     Overtime it accumulates in smokers' bodies and can
      lead to liver and kidney damage, irregular heartbeat
     and shortage of red blood cells.

3. Formaldehyde : Formaldihyde is a colorless and
     smelling chemical which is used to preserve dead
     bodies and is found in cigarettes. Short term exposure
      can cause nausea, skin irritation and burning in eyes,
     nose and throat. It is a lesser known fact that long
      term exposure to it can cause cancer.
4.  Benzene:  A flammable liquid commonly found in
      gasoline, coaltar and crude oil. Long term exposure
      to benzene decreases red blood cells, damages bone
      marrow and increases your risk of blood cancer.

       regular consumption can cause diarrhea, vomiting
       and hairfall. Overtime,it causes severe damage to
        kidney and liver alongwith your DNA.

       prevents the body to use and absorb oxygen when
       More over smoking is the main cause of COPD
       (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease).
