Currently, it is thought that snuff is accountable for about half a million deaths, in the United States because it encourages the development of 21 diseases, which include 12 types of cancer. However, a new study indicates that smoking can be more dangerous than you think. The research data were analyzed for 10 years, almost a million people, finding that other than lung cancer chronic lung disease, heart attacks, arterial disease, and stroke, smoking increases the risk of infections kidney disease, intestinal ischemia breast cancer and other diseases.
This indicates that you are underestimating the impact of smoking on the production of disease and so are experiencing fewer deaths from smoking than they could really be. For at least 17% of deaths during the study to causes that are not currently attributable to smoking were due such as kidney disease, hypertensive heart disease, respiratory disease, breast cancer, prostate cancer, and ischemia intestinal.
The risk of these diseases was higher among smokers and those the majority pronounced in smokers, while former smokers had lower risk and this was reduced as the years passed. All this while not confirming a relationship of cause and effect it demonstrates no less association between the habit of smoking and diseases so far not linked to snuff. Therefore, smoking seems to be far more dangerous than previously thought to affect blood circulation, reduce the defenses, and damage the airways. Thus, there may be many more reasons than you think to quit.
