We all know at least one person who smokes a pack a day. Yes, this is very unhealthy and most smokers suffer from constant coughing, headaches and in some cases cancer. But, what is their smoke doing to you?
Secondhand smoking in some cases has been proven to be worse than actually smoking a cigarette yourself. To clarify what secondhand smoke is, there are two types, side stream smoke (when cigarette/ pipe is lit) and mainstream smoke (smoke being exhaled by a smoker). To my surprise side stream smoke has more cancer causing particles than mainstream smoke!
Secondhand smoke may have the following effects:
- May cause breast cancer
- May cause heart disease
- May cause lung cancer
- Worsen symptoms of asthma
- Lung and bronchus infection – especially in children
- Miscarriage in pregnant women
- Reduce fertility
If you or your partner smoke, it is better to quit today! To aid you in getting rid of this habit, try Ozone therapy. Ozone therapy has proven to eliminate toxins and impurities in the blood, rid the body of carbon monoxide, increase oxygen levels in the blood, increase cellular respiration, fights off cancer causing sells and improves your overall health.
Will you be able to break the habit? If not for you, but for those around you.
