Health Effects Caused By Smoking You Didn’t Know About

Well of course we all know the usual health effects of smoking such as lung cancer, heart disease, asthma etc. but have you ever thought of the other health effects? If you are smoker, then of course you don’t mind the obvious diseases let alone the side effects of it but it would be better to know. If you are a non-smoker, do spread the word. So here are some of them.

1.    Blindness

This is one of the least expected effects of smoking. Studies show smoking increases vision loss in heavy smokers above 55 years of age. This can be seen in many ways; age-related macular degeneration where the macula i.e. the small central area of the retina starts to deteriorate. Cataract is another cause where a cloud arises in the natural causing blockage of vision. Glaucoma damages your optic nerve due to fluid pressure that builds up in your eye. Think about this the next time you take cheap glass bongs for a smoke.

2.    Type 2 diabetes

The resistance to insulin in your body causes type 2 diabetes. Smoking triggers this process which then will cause serious illnesses such as heart disease, kidney failure and even cancer. Moreover, it causes poor blood flow to the legs which will cause infections and then even amputations. You could seriously lose a leg!

3.    Erectile Dysfunction

This is one of the last things you need happening. Male sex organs tend to dysfunction due to smoking. Tobacco and other smoking material lessen the blood flow to your entire body, even the sexual organs. So if you are a heavy smoker, be ready to have an unsatisfied and complaining girlfriend or wife.

4.    Ectopic pregnancy

This is a very dangerous condition. It happens when the fetus plants itself and starts to grow in some place other than the uterus such as the fallopian tube. The fetus will any not be able to survive, while it will also cause life-threatening complications to the mother. This is very common among smoking women.

5.    Colorectal cancer

Getting lung cancer due to smoking? That’s pretty obvious. But have ever thought of colorectal cancer? This cancer infects your intestines rapidly and then unfortunately, gives you a painful death. Colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths in the US. If you don’t want a slow and painful death, think twice before you buy hookah. Look at here now if you are looking for buy hookah.

6.    Cleft lip and palate

A cleft lip or palate in a baby is when his lips don’t develop properly during pregnancy. The lips and nose will be joining and is commonly known as orofacial clefts. It is very common among smoking mother. Why punish your kid for your wrong doings?
