What are the effects?
Short term effects:
There are a number of diseases that are directly related to smoking, such as: lung cancer, bronchitis, emphysema and cardiovascular problems. There are other diseases that usually appear in smokers, like other forms of cancer (lip, mouth, larynx, esophagus and bladder) and peptic ulcer.
What causes risks?
The risk of these diseases depends on four factors:
~Daily cigarette consumption: the higher the daily dose greater the risk. ~Duration of use: The earlier you started smoking and longer is, therefore, the period of his life during which a subject consumed snuff regularly, the greater the risk of disease. ~The way of smoking: those forms that increase the body's exposure to smoke (and repeated deep inhalation, hold the cigarette between puffs), increase the risk. ~Type cigarette: filtered cigarettes, and those with lower tar and nicotine content (equal to consumption), reduce the risk of disease.
