Checkout A Common Type Of Cancer Which Smoking Can Cause

As humans, it's crucial to be mindful of our actions and their potential negative impact on our health. Sadly, many individuals continue to smoke cigarettes regularly, unaware of the long-term harm they're causing themselves.

In this article, we will discuss a type of cancer caused by smoking that may not be well-known to you. Lung cancer is the most common type of cancer caused by smoking and is responsible for approximately 90% of all cases.

According to healthline Cigarettes contain hazardous chemicals such as nicotine, which creates an addictive sensation that smokers enjoy. Additionally, cigarettes contain other harmful substances like arsenic, lead, formaldehyde, and ammonia, all of which are extremely dangerous to one's health.

When cells around the lungs become malignant and start growing uncontrollably, lung cancer develops. This uncontrolled growth forms tumors, which grow and affect breathing, making it challenging to breathe. It's worth noting that tumor growth doesn't stop at the lungs, as it can spread to other parts of the body and cause cancers such as throat, pharynx, colon, liver, kidney, and stomach cancer. Smoking can also lead to heart problems that may result in stroke and death.

It's evident from the above information that smoking has a severe impact on our health, much more than we may realize. Hence, cigarette packets come with warning labels such as "smoking causes lung cancer" and "smokers are liable to die young."
