Health Risks Linked To Tobacco Use

Tobacco and cigarettes contain toxins that are detrimental to the human body.

Tobacco snuff is a form of smokeless tobacco and many people believe that it does not contain the same harmful risks as the tobacco that is smoked. However, it has many health risks and side effects that range from serious to life threatening.

Excretory System

The human excretory system encompasses the lungs, skin, kidneys and liver. All organs are responsible for the removal of toxins and waste from our body but its function slows down during tobacco consumption. The digestive system works hand in hand with the excretory system to remove waste matter out of the body.

Throat Cancer

Tobacco contains many harmful chemicals that lead to severe diseases. It also contains nicotine which is the addictive compound in tobacco smoke, causing addiction and inability to withdraw.

Studies show that tobacco is found to be the most common cause of cancer, especially throat and lung cancer. It ruins the cells in the oral activity and the throat.

Lung Cancer

Usually, lungs work to eliminate carbon dioxide and other toxins from the body. When inhaled, tobacco’s carcinogens accumulate in the lungs. These chemicals develop into tumors and cause lung cancer. Symptoms of lung cancer include persistent cough, unexplained fever, weight loss and shortness of breath. In most cases, 85% of the patients die within 5 years after diagnosis. However, modern technology allows cancers to be detected at an earlier stage and increase a patient’s lifespan.

Digestive System

In the human body, the excretory system works with the digestive system to remove toxins from body. Smoking is linked to several stomach problems including ulcers, gastric problems, Crohn’s disease and gall stones. Tobacco has a direct effect on the stomach; therefore, stomach related symptoms occur rapidly.
