WHAT IS “SMOKING”
Smoking is the inhalation of the smoke of burning tobacco encased in cigarettes, pipes, and cigars.
Casual smoking is the act of smoking only occasionally, usually in a social situation or to relieve
stress. A smoking habit is a physical addiction to tobacco products. Many health experts now regard
habitual smoking as a psychological addiction, too, and one with serious health consequences.

smoking is estimated to cause the following:

* More than 480,000 deaths annually (including deaths from secondhand smoke)

UK die because of smoking each year. According the US CDC (Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention), $92 billion are lost each year from lost productivity resulting from smoking-related
deaths.

WHY DOES “SMOKING” RAISE CANCER RISK ?
NICOTINE This is not carcinogenic. However, it is highly addictive. Smokers find it very hard to
quit because they are hooked on the nicotine. Nicotine is an extremely fast-acting drug. It
reaches the brain within 15 seconds of being inhaled.
CARBON MONOXIDE This is a poisonous gas. It has no smell or taste. The body finds it hard to
differentiate carbon monoxide from oxygen and absorbs it into the bloodstream.
Faulty boilers emit dangerous carbon monoxide, as do car exhausts.

WHY DOES “SMOKING” RAISE CANCER RISK ?
TAR Consists of several cancer-causing chemicals. When a smoker inhales cigarette smoke, 70%
of the tar remains in the lungs. Try the handkerchief test. Fill the mouth with smoke, don't inhale,
and blow the smoke through the handkerchief.
