Cigarettes are a Factory of Hazardous Chemicals

Cigarettes are rolls or rolls of tobacco that are rolled / wrapped in paper, leaves, or corn husks, about the size of a pinkie with a length of 8-10 cm, usually smoked by someone after burning the ends. Cigarettes are manufacturers of dangerous chemicals. Just by burning and smoking a cigarette, more than 4000 types of chemicals can be produced. 400 of them are toxic and 40 of them can accumulate in the body and can cause cancer. Cigarettes are also addictive substances because they can cause addiction (addiction) and dependence (dependence) for people who smoke. In other words, cigarettes belong to the class of drugs (narcotics, psychotropics, alcohol, and addictive substances). For most students, starting to smoke is caused by environmental stimuli. For example, the student feels bad for his friends because he doesn't smoke. So he started smoking and finally enjoyed the cigarette. Most students also think that by smoking they feel very great, stylish, and feared. In fact, if he is not very good at taking care of himself, smoking is the beginning of someone falling into illegal drugs. An active smoker is someone who intentionally smokes rolled or rolled tobacco which is usually wrapped in paper, leaves, and corn husks. They also directly inhale the cigarette smoke that they exhale from their mouths.

1. Yellow teeth due to nicotine.

Their purpose of smoking in general is to warm their bodies from cold temperatures. But over time the use of cigarettes was misunderstood, now cigarettes are considered as a means to prove their identity that those who smoke are "cool". 1. Yellow teeth due to nicotine. 2. Dirty nails due to nicotine. 4. Frequent cough - cough. 5. Mouth and breath smell of cigarettes. Passive smokers are a person or group of people who inhale the smoke of other people's cigarettes. It has been proven that passive smokers experience the same risk of health problems as active smokers, namely people who inhale their own cigarette smoke. 5. Flu and allergies, as well as various diseases of the body's organs as mentioned above. Each cigarette contains more than 4000 types of chemicals that are harmful to the body.

Automatically, the risk of coronary heart attack will be higher.

Four hundred of them can be toxic, while 40 of them can cause cancer. Nicotine is a substance that causes addiction (addiction) with a high tolerance, that is, the longer it is consumed, the more it increases. Symptoms of addiction also occur in someone who starts to quit smoking. Indeed, initially nicotine can stimulate brain work, so the smoker becomes intelligent. However, if this happens continuously, it will weaken the intelligence of the brain itself. This is caused by nicotine which stimulates the production of the hormone adrenaline. The increased production of this hormone will cause the heart to beat faster and the heart to work harder. The heart will need more oxygen than usual. Automatically, the risk of coronary heart attack will be higher. This harmful gas should only be present in vehicle exhaust fumes. However, with the contribution of smokers, this gas which can also bind strongly to blood hemoglobin becomes more abundant in the air and in the human body. In the presence of carbon monoxide (CO) that binds to blood hemoglobin, the heart of a smoker, which requires more oxygen, gets less oxygen. This will lead to an increased risk of heart and lung disease, as well as respiratory disease. In addition to shortness of breath, persistent cough, stamina and endurance of the smoker will also gradually decrease. Disruption of the normal blood circulation system, namely the presence of carbon monoxide gas in the blood, will also cause damage to blood vessels as distributors of blood flow. There will be fatty deposits so that the blood vessels will be blocked.

This increases the risk of having a heart attack or sudden death. Tar is usually used to pave roads. If found in the body through smoking cigarettes, then gradually and surely, will cause cancer. Some examples are benzoa pyrene, nitrosamines, B-naphthylamine, and nickel. DDT is an insect toxin, which is usually used to kill mosquitoes, ants or cockroaches. Acetone is a substance that is used to dissolve paint. You can imagine the danger, if these substances are in our bodies. Formaldehyde, or more commonly known as formalin, is used to preserve corpses. Cadmium is a chemical that is usually found in batteries or motor vehicle batteries. Like DDT, arsenic is a chemical that is often used to kill nuisance insects. Ammonia is the active ingredient in floor cleaners. This material is a radioactive substance, which is a substance capable of emitting active radiation, which can cause changes in normal cell structure and function. Radioactive materials can also cause cancer. Hydrogen cyanide is a substance that is used as a poison in gaseous form. This substance is usually used as a raw material for making plastic. Like DDT and arsenic, this ingredient is found in insecticides. Smoking habits can cause various diseases and can even cause death. Smoking weakens the immune system so that the body is more susceptible to diseases that cause hair loss, oral thrush, etc. Smoking is believed to worsen eye conditions, namely the whitening of the lens of the eye that blocks the entry of light and causes blindness, 40% more occurs in smokers. Cigarettes can cause cataracts in 2 ways, namely by irritating the eyes and by the release of chemicals in the lungs which are carried by the bloodstream to the eyes.

Smoking can also be associated with the muscular degradation associated with old age, an incurable eye disease caused by deterioration of the central part of the retina called the Mucula. This mucula functions to focus the center of vision in the eye and controls the ability to read, drive a car, recognize faces and colors and see objects in detail. Smoking can cause premature aging of the skin due to the destruction of proteins that are useful for maintaining skin elasticity, the erosion of vitamin A, obstruction of blood flow. Smoker's skin becomes dry and wrinkled, especially around the lips and eyes. Because tobacco can cause deposits on the walls of blood vessels, thereby inhibiting the rate of blood flow into the inner ear. Smokers may lose their hearing earlier than non-smokers or lose their hearing more easily due to ear infections or loud noises. The risk for middle ear infection which can lead to further complications called Meningitis and Facial Paralysis for smokers is 3 times greater than for non-smokers. Smoking does not cause melanoma (a type of skin cancer that sometimes causes death) but smoking increases the chance of dying from the disease. It is suspected that smokers are at risk of suffering from Custaneus Scuamus Cell Cancer, a type of cancer that leaves red spots on the skin 2 times greater than non-smokers.

In severe cases, a tracheotomy is used to help the patient breathe.

Cigarettes affect the chemical balance in the mouth to form excessive plaque, yellow teeth and caries, smokers are 1.5 times more likely to lose their teeth. In addition to lung cancer, smoking can cause enphysema, which is the widening and destruction of the air sacs in the lungs, which reduces the lung's capacity to take in oxygen and release carbon dioxide. In severe cases, a tracheotomy is used to help the patient breathe. Like an incision for ventilation holes in the throat as a way for air to enter the lungs. In cases of chronic bronchitis there is a buildup of mucus, resulting in a painful cough and difficulty breathing. In addition to lung and heart cancer, smoking can also cause coughing. Due to damage to the air sacs in the lungs which reduces the capacity of the lungs and oxygen to release oxygen. If this situation continues, there will be a buildup of mucus, resulting in a painful cough and difficulty breathing. One in three deaths in the world is caused by heart disease.

Tobacco use is one of the biggest risk factors for this disease. It has been determined that cigarette smoke contains more than 40 kinds of toxic substances. The likelihood of developing lung and heart cancer in smokers is 22 times greater than that of nonsmokers. Carbon monoxide (CO) is a toxic chemical that is widely found in car exhaust and cigarette smoke more easily bound to the blood than oxygen so that the ability of the blood to lift oxygen decreases by 15% in smokers. As a result, bones in smokers lose their density, become more easily fractured or fractured and take longer to heal. Smokers also become more prone to spinal problems.

A study showed that factory workers who smoked were 5 times more likely to experience back pain after trauma. One in three deaths in the world is caused by cardiovascular disease. Tobacco use is one of the biggest risk factors for this disease. In developing countries disease kills more than one million people every year. Cardiovascular diseases related to tobacco use in developed countries kill more than 600,000 people every year. Smoking causes the heart to beat faster, raises blood pressure and increases the risk of hypertension and clogged arteries, which can lead to heart attacks and strokes. Tobacco consumption reduces resistance to bacteria that cause peptic ulcers and also minimizes the stomach's ability to neutralize stomach acid after eating so that the remaining acid will eat away at the stomach wall. Gastric ulcers suffered by smokers are more difficult to treat and cure. Tar contained in cigarette smoke accumulates on the fingers and nails leaving a yellowish brown color. In addition to increasing the risk of cervical and uterine cancer, smoking causes fertility problems in women and various complications during pregnancy and childbirth. Smoking during pregnancy increases the risk of having a baby with low birth weight (LBW) and health problems afterward. Failure to conceive or abortion occurs 2-3 times greater in women who smoke.
