The deadliest form of cancer in the U.S., involving cells that originate in the bronchi or lung. The term includes four cell types: squamous cell (epidermoid) carcinoma, adenocarcinoma, large cell (anaplastic) cancer, and small cell (oat cell) cancer. INCIDENCE In 2013, the National Cancer Institute (NCI) estimated that more than 228,000 people would be diagnosed with lung cancer and that about 159,500 would die of the disease. It is the second most common cancer in both men and women. CAUSES The vast majority are caused by carcinogens in tobacco smoke, including secondhand smoke. Other risks include exposure to carcinogenic industrial and air pollutants (asbestos, uranium, arsenic, nickel, chromium, iron oxides, coal dust, and radioactive dusts), concentrations of radon gas, and familial susceptibility. SYMPTOMS AND SIGNS Symptoms may include persistent cough, chest pain, dyspnea, weight loss, or hemoptysis. Changes in normal respiratory patterns or hoarseness, as well as pneumonia, bronchitis, epigastric pain, symptoms of brain metastasis, arm or shoulder pain, or swelling of the upper body are other possible signs. DIAGNOSIS Diagnostic tests include a chest x-ray, computed tomography (CT) scan, cytological sputum analysis, and bronchoscopy. Other tests include needle biopsy, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), thoracentesis, thoracotomy, mediastinoscopy, or pulmonary function tests. TREATMENT Treatment includes lung surgery, radiation therapy, and chemotherapy (including epidermal growth factor receptor blockers) often provided serially or in combination. PROGNOSIS People with localized lung cancer have an approx. 5-year survival of 50%. People with widely metastatic lung cancer have a 5-year survival of less than 5%. PATIENT CARE Staging determines the extent of the disease and aids in planning treatment and predicting the prognosis. Lung cancer is relatively difficult to cure but much easier to prevent. Children and adolescents should be discouraged from smoking tobacco products, and current smokers should be assisted in their efforts to quit, e.g., through referrals to local branches of the American Cancer Society (ACS), smoking-cessation programs, individual counseling, or group therapy. SCREENING AND PUBLIC HEALTH Chest x-rays do not show small, early cancers, but computed tomography (CT) scanning can be used to screen people who have a long history of smoking and evidence of emphysema. In this high-risk group, screening detects the disease in its early stages when it is most likely to be curable. Smokers over the age of 55 who undergo annual lung cancer screening with low-dose CT scans have improved survival relative to those who do not. However, the public health costs of mass screening are high compared with the cost of encouraging smokers to quit or teaching teenagers not to start smoking.

According to a newly published study, "light" cigarettes appear to be largely to blame for an increase in cases and deaths of a type of lung cancer known as adenocarcinoma. Light or low tar cigarettes have holes in the cigarette filter, which allow smokers to inhale more smoke with higher levels of carcinogens, mutagens and other toxins, and have been on the market for 50 years. A press release stated, "Our data suggests a clear relationship between the addition of ventilation holes in cigarettes and increasing rates of lung adenocarcinoma seen over the past 20 years.” http://www.upi.com/Health_News/2017/05/22/Use-of-light-cigarettes-linked-to-rise-in-lung-adenocarcinoma/8341495456260/ http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

Lung cancer remains a deadly disease and most cases are caused by cigarette smoking. Using data from IARC ( International Agency for research on Cancer) in Lyon, France, Hans Rosling shows the dramatic differences between men and women, between countries and between different decades in the same country. They are due to variations in tobacco smoking in the world. Most people in low income countries cannot afford many cigarettes, and hence have low risk for lung cancer. Middle income countries have the highest frequency of tobacco smoking, and hence of lung cancer. In most high income countries health education and regulations are having effects, tobacco consumption is reduced and so the risk of lung cancer in men. But unfortunately smoking and lung cancer is still increasing in women in many countries. Iceland is the first country to reach equal smoking frequencies in men and women and now also have the same risk for lung cancer in both sexes. In spite of growing concerns for environmental toxins, tobacco smoking remains the most important avoidable cancer risk in the world. Help us caption & translate this video! http://amara.org/v/Dxsv/

In 1952, epidemiologists at the American Cancer Society (ACS) launched the Hammond-Horn Study, a large, long-term follow-up study designed to examine the association of cigarette smoking with death rates from cancer and other diseases. For that study, 22,000 volunteers recruited a cohort of 188,000 men who provided detailed information on their smoking habits. These men were followed for mortality through 1955. This study helped to establish cigarette smoking as a cause of death from lung cancer and coronary heart disease. The commitment of the study participants and the volunteers who recruited them has been vital to the success of these studies. ACS follow-up studies have played a major role in cancer prevention at the American Cancer Society, as well as in other national and international efforts. More than 300 scientific articles by ACS epidemiologists have been published from these studies and findings have significantly contributed to tobacco-related research, and to the understanding of obesity, diet, physical activity, hormone use, air pollution, and various other exposures in relation to cancer and other diseases.

This was clipped from the 1975 film, The Answers We Seek, a Tobacco Institute sponsored documentary (propaganda) meant to cast doubt on the hazards of smoking, with the position that stress and genetics rather than smoking cause illness. Film uses scientists and doctors to refute the Surgeon General's findings that smoking causes lung cancer, emphysema, and heart disease. The entire film is available at the Internet Archive, as a part of the UCSF Tobacco Industry Videos Collection. The University of California, San Francisco Tobacco Control Archives Multimedia Collection contains audiotapes and videotapes related to the advertising, manufacturing, marketing, sales, and scientific research of tobacco products as well as materials gathered and produced by tobacco control advocates.

What Happens After Smoking 60 Cigarettes An experiment after smoking 60 cigarettes Smoking is one of the worst habit spread in people. It's the one of the common of using drugs. . Less common drugs for smoking include cannabis and opium. The history of smoking can be dated to as early as 5000 BC, and has been recorded in many different cultures across the world. Early smoking evolved in association with religious ceremonies; as offerings to deities, in cleansing rituals or to allow shamans and priests to alter their minds for purposes of divination or spiritual enlightenment. After the European exploration and conquest of the Americas, the practice of smoking tobacco quickly spread to the rest of the world. In regions like India and Subsaharan Africa, it merged with existing practices of smoking (mostly of cannabis). In Europe, it introduced a new type of social activity and a form of drug intake which previously had been unknown.

Epidemiological research has been focused primarily on cigarette tobacco smoking, which has been studied more extensively than any other form of consumption. Tobacco is the single greatest cause of preventable death globally. Tobacco use leads most commonly to diseases affecting the heart and lungs, with smoking being a major risk factor for heart attacks, strokes, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) (including emphysema and chronic bronchitis), and cancer (particularly lung cancer, cancers of the larynx and mouth, and pancreatic cancer). It also causes peripheral vascular disease and hypertension. The effects depend on the number of years that a person smokes and on how much the person smokes. Starting smoking earlier in life and smoking cigarettes higher in tar increases the risk of these diseases. Also, environmental tobacco smoke, or secondhand smoke, has been shown to cause adverse health effects in people of all ages. Cigarettes sold in underdeveloped countries tend to have higher tar content, and are less likely to be filtered, potentially increasing vulnerability to tobacco-related disease in these regions... Smoke contains several carcinogenic pyrolytic products that bind to DNA and cause many genetic mutations. There are over 19 known chemical carcinogens in cigarette smoke . Tobacco also contains nicotine, which is a highly addictive psychoactive chemical... A person's increased risk of contracting disease is directly proportional to the length of time that a person continues to smoke as well as the amount smoked. However, if someone stops smoking, then these chances gradually decrease as the damage to their body is repaired. A year after quitting, the risk of contracting heart disease is half that of a continuing smoker. The health risks of smoking are not uniform across all smokers. Risks vary according to amount of tobacco smoked, with those who smoke more at greater risk. Light cigarette smoking still poses a significant (though reduced) health risk, as does pipe and cigar smoking. Smoking so-called "light" cigarettes does not reduce the risk. Tobacco use most commonly leads to diseases affecting the heart and lungs and will most commonly affect areas such as hands or feet with first signs of smoking related health issues showing up as numbness, with smoking being a major risk factor for heart attacks, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), emphysema, and cancer, particularly lung cancer, cancers of the larynx and mouth, and pancreatic cancer. Overall life expectancy is also reduced in regular smokers, with estimates ranging from 10 to 17.9 years fewer than nonsmokers. About one half of male smokers will die of illness due to smoking. The association of smoking with lung cancer is strongest, both in the public perception and etiologically. People who have smoked tobacco at some point have about a one in ten chance of developing lung cancer during their lifetime. If one looks at men who continue to smoke tobacco, the risk increases to one in six... Mortality Male and female smokers lose an average of 13.2 to 14.5 years of life, respectively. According to the results of a 50 year study of 34,486 male British doctors, at least half of all life-long smokers die earlier as a result of smoking. Smokers are three times as likely to die before the age of 60 or 70 as non-smokers. In the United States, cigarette smoking and exposure to tobacco smoke accounts for roughly one in five, or at at least 443,000 premature deaths annually. To put this into context, in the US alone, tobacco kills the equivalent of three jumbo jets full of people crashing every day, with no survivors. On a worldwide basis, this equates to a single jumbo jet every hour. Cancer The primary risks of tobacco usage include many forms of cancer, particularly lung cancer, kidney cancer, cancer of the larynx and head and neck, breast cancer, bladder cancer, cancer of the esophagus, cancer of the pancreas and stomach cancer...

http://www.mdanderson.org/about-us/facts-and-history/surgeon-general-s-50th-anniversary/index.html In January 1964, the U.S. Surgeon General's office released its first report on smoking and health, a comprehensive scientific review which identified cigarettes as a major public health hazard. Fifty years later, the impacts of that landmark document are still being felt. Dr. Luther L. Terry, who served as Surgeon General at the time of the report's release later recalled that it "hit the country like a bombshell." The report quickly shifted public attitudes about smoking. Within months, the Federal Trade Commission ordered cigarette manufacturers to place a warning label on their products. In 1969, cigarette advertising on American TV and radio was banned. Surgeon General's Report on Smoking & Health—50th Anniversary: 1964-2014 Since the initial report, adult smoking rates have been cut in half. However, tobacco remains a major killer of Americans. Smoking - which is linked to 11 different types of cancer, chronic lung disease and heart disease - remains the leading cause of preventable and premature death in this country.

It's no secret that smoking is unhealthy. It hurts the lungs especially,... contributing to almost 90 percent of all lung cancer deaths. That's why quitting tends to be on so many smokers' to-do lists. But not everyone succeeds in beating addiction. In the search for ways to reduce the risk of lung cancer,... local researchers at Seoul National University Bundang Hospital recently used data from the National Health Insurance Service to analyze more than 140-thousand men over 40 years old... who had received medical checkups from 2002 to 2005. According to the team, smokers can lower their risk of lung cancer by simply smoking fewer cigarettes. Analysis shows the risk of lung cancer was reduced by up to 45 percent when men who usually smoked ten to twenty cigarettes per day... cut it to fewer than ten a day. It turns out smoking less also helps prevent other smoking-related diseases, such as stomach and colorectal cancers by up to twenty-six percent. It also brings down the chance of getting any cancer at all by eighteen percent. The researchers said their findings have extra significance in the fact that they were drawn from a massive database. They added that while cutting back on cigarettes can clearly help prevent cancer, the best strategy is to stop smoking for good. Cho Sung-min, arirang news.

I offer this as an example of how simple it is to "spin" health risks.

The link between smoking and lung cancer may be the most recognized, but the truth is smoking can cause cancer almost anywhere in the body. "Fifteen, eighteen years ago, probably 90-95% of my new cancer patients were smokers. And their cancers were most of the time caused by the smoking," says Dr. Phillip Andrews, otolaryngologist on the Lee Memorial Health System medical staff. Though still a risk for cancers of the mouth, throat, voice box and esophagus, smoking has some company. "Now about 45% are non-smokers and the majority of those are caused by HPV," says Dr. Andrews. The tobacco products-cancer connection has changed over the years. Researchers now find the smoking risk is rising in bladder cancers. It may be related to a change in cigarette ingredients. While there have been decreases in tar and nicotine, carcinogens associated with bladder cancer have increased. "Smoking increases the chances of bladder tumor 4 to 7 times, compared to a patient that didn't smoke," says Dr. Alejandro Mirando-Sousa, urologist on Lee Memorial Health System's medical staff. As the lungs absorb smoke, it passes toxins into the bloodstream. "And because the blood is filtered by the kidney of these chemicals and the byproduct of smoking will be urinated and left in the bladder. So it's a constant bathing of chemicals that will make changes in the urinary tract," says Dr. Mirando-Sousa. Kicking the habit reduces the risk of developing and dying from cancer, but it takes years. "Studies show you have to stop smoking 17-20 years for your risk to go back to baseline," says Dr. Mirando-Sousa. Overall the number of people with bladder cancer has remained steady, as more people get the message and fewer people are lighting up.

Decreasing tobacco intake is a key goal for reducing the incidence of lung cancer. In this video, recorded at the European Lung Cancer Congress (ELCC) 2018, held in Geneva, Switzerland, Matti Aapro, MD, of the Clinique de Genolier, Genolier, Switzerland, discusses new initiatives being implemented by the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC) to decrease tobacco usage. The key incentive involves increasing cigarette prices, which has been shown to be highly effective; however, Dr Aapro also highlights the fact that in certain countries, such as China, a greater effort is required to effectively reduce smoking.

English/Nat U-S scientists say new genetic research shows a definite link between cigarettes and cancer. In a study published Friday in an American journal, researchers say a chemical present in tobacco commonly links up with a gene critical in the development of cancer. Anti-smoking advocates say the research finally proves the long suspected connection between smoking and cancer. And they hope it will be new ammunition against tobacco makers battling with former smokers in multi-million dollar liability cases. Researchers in Texas and California say they now have overwhelming evidence of a biological link between cigarette smoking and lung cancer. In the study published Friday in the journal 'Science', researchers found that a tobacco agent -- Benzo (a) Pyrene -- links up with molecules on a gene known as P-53. That tobacco agent, say government researchers, is the first of it's kind to show a solid scientific link with smoking and cancer. SOUNDBITE: "They can now identify this agent as being directly linked with exposure in smokers that leads to this P-53 mutation. That helps to then explaining the mechanism whereby lung cancer takes place as a result of cigarette smoking. So in that context it is a step forward in terms of at least underlying medically or clinically how the disease process takes place." SUPER CAPTION: Donald Shopland, National Cancer Institute A number of earlier studies have linked cigarette smoking to lung cancer. Research also has shown that in most lung cancers, the P-53 gene is damaged or altered at points in the gene structure that scientists call "hot spots." In the new study, researchers show that the tobacco carcinogen B-P-D-E binds, or joins, the P-53 gene at exactly those same "hot spots." SOUNDBITE: "For years we've heard the industry say that the cause of connection has not been established. We know it's been established and this study does it one more time in a very deliberate and definitive way." SUPER CAPTION: Scott Ballin, American Heart Association The new research could give plaintiffs a powerful new weapon in lawsuits against tobacco companies. It could also lead to more suits concerning passive smoking. SOUNDBITE: "If, if it turns out that those changes occur predominately or only in smokers then I think it's going to make a difference. But what's unclear from the articles is whether or not those changes occur and are also present in people who don't smoke who develop lung cancer. If it turns out that they are unique or almost unique, the smokers, then I think it's going to be used as ammunition for people who claim that they've been harmed by environmental tobacco smoke." SUPER CAPTION: Mike Bough, The CATO Institute Despite the latest research, a cure for the disease has moved no closer. SOUNDBITE: We could be years or decades away from actually developing something before you can actually put it into practical use. And I think form a health standpoint that's something that people have to keep in mind. This is not a breakthrough in terms of early diagnosis or treatment just yet, we are probably years away from that." SUPER CAPTION: Donald Shopland, National Cancer Institute The news is unlikely to be welcomed by the tobacco companies. In midday stock market trading, prices of the two biggest tobacco companies, Philip Morris and R-J-R Nabisco Holdings, were down more than three percent.

In the last 50 years, cigarette smoking has declined by more than half, reaching a record low and the rate is still dropping. “People generally are smoking less now so we see lung cancers in lighter smokers and not as much of a, the heavy exposure we used to see back in the 80s and 90s,” says Dr. Lowell Hart, an oncologist on the Lee Memorial Health System medical staff. While smoking remains the number risk factor for most lung cancers, non-smokers are more likely to be diagnosed with a specific type on non-small cell lung cancer. “So the new types of lung cancer that we’re seeing are more adenocarcinomas of the lung,” says Dr. Hart. About 40% of lung cancers are adenocarcinomas. This type of lung cancer is the most common type of lung cancer seen in non-smokers. It is more common in women than in men, and it is more likely to occur in younger people than other types of lung cancer. “Now whether these are due to environmental sources or other sources we don't know for sure,” says Dr. Hart. As many as 20% of the people who die from lung cancer in the United States every year do not smoke or use any other form of tobacco. “Still, worldwide the majority of lung cancer is caused by smoking; cigarette smoking. So the number one thing you can do for your health to avoid getting lung cancer is to avoid smoking or not start.

Bronwyn King, a Melbourne radiation oncologist, was horrified that she and her colleagues at Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre were unknowingly supporting tobacco through their superannuation (pension) investments - an action which came at the expense of their patients, whose lives, and those of their family and friends, were ravaged by the effects of lung cancer. So she decided to do something about it. As Founder and CEO of Tobacco Free Portfolios, Browwyn King's collaborative work with finance industry executives has contributed to over 40% of Australian pension funds implementing tobacco free investment mandates, with (as of June 2017) $2.5 billion tobacco stocks now divested.

Imagine this alternative could help millions of people quit smoking and came with only a fraction of the harmful chemicals that cigarettes do. Well, you don’t have to imagine it. It exists. E-cigarettes are the most innovative and promising smoking-cessation product yet invented. So, public health officials and anti-tobacco activists are all in favor of this life-saving innovation, right? Actually, they’re almost all totally against it. Why? Because, incredibly, they make no substantial distinction between e-cigarettes and real cigarettes -- even though they are completely different products. To begin with, e-cigarettes aren’t cigarettes. They contain no tobacco. Instead, a liquid containing nicotine derived from tobacco leaves is vaporized, and users of e-cigarettes inhale that vapor. Vapor, mind-you – not smoke. This is significant because the real harm from tobacco comes from the combustion process, which releases hundreds of toxic compounds known as tar. Since e-cigarettes have no tobacco and no combustion, they release no tar. This makes them, according to Britain’s Department of Health, at least 95% less harmful than tobacco cigarettes. E-cigarettes do contain nicotine, an addictive drug. However, there is little evidence that nicotine alone is bad for you, making it similar to, say, caffeine--a drug used every day by millions of people. Brad Rodu, an oral cancer specialist at the University of Louisville, put it this way: “I love coffee, and I’m sure I could get caffeine if I smoked my coffee beans…but I would be paying a much different price in overall health [if I did].” In other words, when it comes to addictive substances like caffeine or nicotine, it isn’t the addictive substance that’s harmful; it’s how it’s delivered. As South African psychiatrist Mike Russell said about cigarettes: “[People] smoke for [the] nicotine, but they die from the tar.” And again, there’s no tar in e-cigarettes. Does this all mean e-cigarettes are completely safe? Of course not. Nothing is completely safe. E-cigarettes are a relatively new innovation so more research is needed, especially on long-term effects. There’s also a place for sensible regulation to ensure consumer safety. But unlike normal everyday products, any potential risk posed by e-cigarettes is far outweighed by a real – not potential – good: saving lives by providing the nicotine that smokers enjoy without delivering the deadly toxins that can kill them. Many former smokers have successfully used e-cigarettes to help them kick their nicotine addiction altogether. A recent study in an Oxford Journal peer-reviewed publication, Nicotine and Tobacco Research, said that e-cigarettes could reduce smoking-related deaths by 21 percent. That’s thousands of lives every year. For the complete script, visit https://www.prageru.com/videos/whats-wrong-e-cigarettes

It was five decades ago that the U.S. Surgeon General linked smoking to lung cancer. In 1964, it was a bold statement. “The truth of the matter is people didn't really understand cigarettes were bad for you for decades. And people didn't really show the affects of cigarettes themselves until several decades after using them,” says Dr. Sunil Pammi, who is a pulmonologist for Lee Memorial Health System. Today we know smoking is the fueling force behind the nation’s top cancer killer. But few realize today’s smoker faces greater risks than 50 years ago. Changes in cigarette design include an estimated 70 carcinogens. “There are multiple chemicals in the cigarette that allow the cigarettes to burn at a certain rate. And those all go into the body and cause certain changes in the body, especially causing nicotine to be absorbed quickly into the body,” says Dr. Pammi. From the point smoke enters through the mouth, it heightens cancer risk throughout the body. A report released this year links tobacco to 17 different cancers. “It could of course cause lung cancer, breast cancer. Urinary tract cancers as well can be linked to cigarette smoking. Almost every organ can somehow be affected,” says Dr. Pammi. Many people are unaware that smoking is a key contributor to bladder, kidney, stomach and pancreatic cancers. Tobacco use accounts for at least 30% of all cancer deaths. “We can change our health by choosing not to pick up cigarettes,” says Dr. Pammi. A smoking gun - the act of not lighting up may be the best method of cancer prevention.

When you stop smoking, this is what happens to your body. Some of us humans are known to have an addictive personality. There are many products like food or other devices that are designed to hook people in so that they will continue buying and using the product. Some of these can even be habit-inducing such as Chocolate, Alcohol and Cigarettes. Although you probably won’t run into that many problems if you eat a lot of chocolate, the other two vices are quite habit-inducing and over time can become harmful to your health, particularly smoking if it’s a daily habit. If you’re a long time smoker or just starting out, there are a ton of things that change within your body that you might not even have noticed. So, when you decide to quit, your body goes through more changes. #QuitSmoking #StopSmoking #Smoking Timestamps: 1. Blood Pressure: 1:10 2. Oxygen: 1:24 3. Heart Attack: 1:38 4. Senses: 1:55 5. Circulation: 2:13 6. Lungs: 2:33 7. Overall Health: 2:54 8. Lowers Risks: 3:06 9. Back to Normal: 3:20 Music: https://www.youtube.com/audiolibrary/music Summary: 1. Blood Pressure: Although it can be difficult to make the decision to quit, it’s the best option in the long run. Just 20 minutes after you put down your last cigarette, your pulse and blood pressure will begin to normalize. 2. Oxygen: If you can make it up to eight hours without having a smoke, your body’s carbon monoxide levels will being to neutralize in the blood as well as the levels of oxygen. 3. Heart Attack: After 24 hours, the risks of a heart attack are severely lowered. See how much can change after just one day off of tobacco? Although your irritability levels might be rising by now, your body is beginning to cleanse itself. 4. Senses: Something that you might not have noticed happening to you over the years of smoking, is that your sense perception decreases. After 48 hours off tobacco, you will notice your sense of taste and smell beginning to improve as your nerve ending start to regrow. 5. Circulation: After around 2 weeks to 3 months of consistent restraint, blood circulation in the body improves and you’ll find it becomes easier to walk longer distances without losing your breath. The lungs’ functionality will increase up to 30%. 6. Lungs: When 1-9 months has passed, your body will continue to gain back its energy and any problems with coughing, shortness of breath, and sinus problems will reduce. Cilia will begin to regrow in the lungs which will help to cleanse and lower the risk of infection in the body. 7. Overall Health: When a year has passed, your chance of heart disease will be two times lower than that of a smoker. 8. Lowers Risks: After 5 years time, the risk of mouth, throat, and esophageal cancer will be cut in half as well as the rate of lung cancer fatality being twice as low that that of a daily smoker. 9. Back to Normal: When 15 years have passed, the risk of heart disease will be the same as if you had never been a smoker! Long Term: Now that you know what happens during the long term goal, you still have to keep in mind that it’s going to be difficult to stick to this plan. Intense cravings at first will be normal. You may also begin to feel agitated or experience anxiety, tension, or frustration. You may even experience sleeping difficulties and changes to the appetite. After three days, the nicotine will have completely left your body and side effects will be in full effect. You may experience symptoms like nausea, cramps, sweating, and headaches. This is the point where quitting is at its hardest so if you make it beyond this point, reward yourself with something to keep you motivated. Support: If you are having trouble staying motivated, it can help to tell your friends or loved ones what you’re doing so that you don’t have to quit alone and in silence. It’s also important to let people know what you’re doing so they understand any mood or physical changes. Your body, the environment, and your loved ones will be happy with the decision you have made to quit. You will feel more like yourself and will also be saving money by not indulging in your habits.

Video copyrights to World Health Organisation Tobacco consumption is injurious to health Smoking kills: Say no to smoking Smoking can damage many parts of the body Tobacco use has predominantly negative effects on human health and concern about health effects of tobacco has a long history. Research has focused primarily on cigarette tobacco smoking. In 1950, Richard Doll published research in the British Medical Journal showing a close link between smoking and lung cancer. Four years later, in 1954, the British Doctors Study, a study of some 40,000 doctors over 20 years, confirmed the suggestion, based on which the government issued advice that smoking and lung cancer rates were related. Smoking kills : Say no to smoking Tobacco smoke contains more than fifty chemicals that cause cancer. Tobacco also contains nicotine, which is a highly addictive psychoactive drug. When tobacco is smoked, nicotine causes physical and psychological dependency. Cigarettes sold in underdeveloped countries tend to have higher tar content, and are less likely to be filtered, potentially increasing vulnerability to tobacco smoking related disease in these regions. Tobacco use is the single greatest cause of preventable death globally. As many as half of people who use tobacco die from complications of tobacco use. The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that each year tobacco causes about 6 million deaths (about 10% of all deaths) with 600,000 of these occurring in non smokers due to second hand smoke. In the 20th century tobacco is estimated to have caused 100 million deaths. Similarly, the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention describes tobacco use as "the single most important preventable risk to human health in developed countries and an important cause of premature death worldwide." According to a 2014 review in the New England Journal of Medicine, tobacco will, if current smoking patterns persist, kill about 1 billion people in the 21st century, half of them before the age of 70. website link : http://sickseek.com twitter : https://twitter.com/sickseek_off facebook page at : https://www.facebook.com/sickseekoffi... instagram at : https://www.instagram.com/sickseek/

A new study revealed that almost one third of cancer deaths among Americans over 35 are due to smoking cigarettes. The rate is a lot higher in the South, perhaps due to their lax smoking laws. Patricia Folan of the Center for Tobacco Control at Northwell Health said, “States with underfunded tobacco-control programs have the highest prevalence of smoking, as well as the highest proportion of cancer deaths attributable to cigarette smoking.” The study found that cancer deaths affected men more than women. Dr. Len Horovitz said, “Smoking continues to be the biggest threat to health in this country -- it's time to help people quit.” http://www.upi.com/Health_News/2016/10/24/Smoking-tied-to-nearly-one-third-of-adult-cancer-deaths-in-US/5121477327745/ http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

At 45, he is the victim of a habit which is killing millions in his country. Most Indonesians don't believe that smoking is bad for their health and the industry shamelessly cashes in on their ignorance. "Indonesia is a rogue state when it comes to tobacco control", explains David Stanford of Indonesia's Consumers Federation. Low taxes keep cigarettes cheap while aggressive marketing portrays smoking as cool. At a rock festival advertisements are everywhere and free cigarettes handed out to teenagers. Health campaigners denounce the usual suspects: "Philip Morris is continuing to target youth in Indonesia." And as always, the industry is unrepentant.

The queues outside the Tianjin Medical University Cancer Institute and Hospital begin to form as early as 4am – come much later, and you risk not getting face time with a doctor. China's public hospitals may ostensibly work on an appointment and referral system, but in practice, the crush of people means it's generally first come, first serve. Many at the front of the queue each morning are "number hawkers", opportunists who sell their spot in line for a fee. "In big hospitals, clinics are as crowded as vegetable markets in the morning," says Wang Changli, the hospital's head of lung cancer, and one of the country's top lung cancer experts. Wang's day is an endless procession of ward checks, examinations and lung cancer operations – at least five or six a day just to keep the waiting list from spiralling out of control. He sees so many patients he never remembers their names – but says he can tell each patient apart from their chest X-ray. For all the alarming reports that China's toxic air pollution levels are contributing to a spike in cancer rates, most incidences of lung cancer are still far and away attributable to smoking; and like with most statistics associated with China, the numbers are staggering. China is home to more than 350 million smokers – about one-third of the world's total. More than 1 million die of tobacco-related disease each year – about one every 30 seconds. That number is expected to double by 2025. The economic burden of tobacco-related illness has run into the tens of billions of dollars. China's biggest obstacle in fighting its tobacco addiction has traditionally been itself. The all-powerful tobacco monopoly is government-owned, and turned over 600 billion yuan (more than $100 billion) in revenue to the state, according to a 2012 Brookings Institution report. Li Keming, the brother of Premier Li Keqiang, is a senior administrator at the State Tobacco Monopoly Administration. "The tobacco lobby, or the tobacco industry, is the government. It's like turning up to the cabinet table in Australia to debate tobacco control policy and having Phillip Morris sitting on the other side," says Dr Angela Pratt, who saw Australia's unprecedented plain-packaging laws introduced while serving a five-year stint as then health minister Nicola Roxon's chief of staff. She is now leading the World Health Organisation's Tobacco Free Initiative in Beijing. China ratified the WHO's framework convention on tobacco control in 2005, which meant it should have banned smoking in indoor public areas completely by 2011. But existing laws are loophole-ridden, often poorly enforced, and inconsistent from city to city. But China's 12th five-year plan, endorsed by the National People's Congress in March 2011, has an ambitious goal of improving the average life expectancy for the Chinese population by one year within the next five years. For the first time, tobacco control – particularly the banning of smoking in indoor areas – was highlighted.

No Smoking ------------------- WhatsApp. http://yoitect.com/84VV The effects of smoking are serious. It can harm nearly every organ of the body. It causes nearly one of every five deaths in the United States each year. Is smoking a risk factor for autoimmune diseases? How does smoking affect my bones?

Do menthol cigarettes cause cancer? Can smoking cigars and pipes cause cancer? Health effects of tobacco Cigarette smoking is the leading cause of preventable death and a major public health concern. There are 1.1 billion tobacco users in the world. One person dies every six seconds from a tobacco related disease. Common adverse effects of tobacco smoking. The more common effects are in bold face. Tobacco use leads most commonly to diseases affecting the heart and lungs, with smoking being a major risk factor for heart attacks, strokes, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), emphysema, and cancer (particularly lung cancer, cancers of the larynx and mouth, esophageal cancer and pancreatic cancer). Cigarette smoking increases the risk of Crohn's disease as well as the severity of the course of the disease. It is also the number one cause of bladder cancer. The smoke from tobacco elicits carcinogenic effects on the tissues of the body that are exposed to the smoke. Tobacco smoke is a complex mixture of over 5,000 identified chemicals, of which 98 are known to have specific toxicological properties. The most important chemicals causing cancer are those that produce DNA damage since such damage appears to be the primary underlying cause of cancer. Cunningham et al. combined the microgram weight of the compound in the smoke of one cigarette with the known genotoxic effect per microgram to identify the most carcinogenic compounds in cigarette smoke. The seven most important carcinogens in tobacco smoke are shown in the table, along with DNA alterations they cause. The most genotoxic cancer causing chemicals in cigarette smoke Compound Micrograms per cigarette Effect on DNA Ref. Acrolein 122.4 Reacts with deoxyguanosine and forms DNA crosslinks, DNA-protein crosslinks and DNA adducts Formaldehyde 60.5 DNA-protein crosslinks causing chromosome deletions and re-arrangements Acrylonitrile 29.3 Oxidative stress causing increased 8-oxo-2'-deoxyguanosine 1,3-butadiene 105.0 Global loss of DNA methylation (an epigenetic effect) as well as DNA adducts Acetaldehyde 1448.0 Reacts with deoxyguanine to form DNA adducts Ethylene oxide 7.0 Hydroxyethyl DNA adducts with adenine and guanine Isoprene 952.0 Single and double strand breaks in DNA See also: polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons Tobacco smoke can combine with other carcinogens present within the environment in order to produce elevated degrees of lung cancer. Cigarette smoking has also been associated with sarcopenia, the age-related loss of muscle mass and strength. The World Health Organization estimates that tobacco caused 5.4 million deaths in 2004 and 100 million deaths over the course of the 20th century. Similarly, the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention describes tobacco use as "the single most important preventable risk to human health in developed countries and an important cause of premature death worldwide." Although 70% of smokers state their intention to quit only 3-5% are actually successful in doing so. The probabilities of death from lung cancer before age 75 in the United Kingdom are 0.2% for men who never smoked (0.4% for women), 5.5% for male former smokers (2.6% in women), 15.9% for current male smokers (9.5% for women) and 24.4% for male “heavy smokers” defined as smoking more than 5 cigarettes per day (18.5% for women). Tobacco smoke can combine with other carcinogens present within the environment in order to produce elevated degrees of lung cancer. Rates of smoking have generally leveled-off or declined in the developed world. Smoking rates in the United States have dropped by half from 1965 to 2006 falling from 42% to 20.8% in adults. In the developing world, tobacco consumption is rising by 3.4% per year. Second-hand smoke presents a known health risk, to which six hundred thousand deaths were attributed in 2004. It also has been known to produce skin conditions such as freckles and dryness. In 2015, a meta-analysis found that smokers were at greater risk of developing psychotic illness. Tobacco has also been described an anaphrodisiac due to its propensity for causing erectile dysfunction.

http://www.mdanderson.org/about-us/facts-and-history/surgeon-general-s-50th-anniversary/index.html We asked our expert, Dr. Lewis Foxhall, vice president of health policy, what it will take to significantly reduce smoking rates and tobacco use in the U.S. In January 1964, the U.S. Surgeon General's office released its first report on smoking and health, a comprehensive scientific review which identified cigarettes as a major public health hazard. Fifty years later, the impacts of that landmark document are still being felt. Dr. Luther L. Terry, who served as Surgeon General at the time of the report's release later recalled that it "hit the country like a bombshell." The report quickly shifted public attitudes about smoking. Within months, the Federal Trade Commission ordered cigarette manufacturers to place a warning label on their products. In 1969, cigarette advertising on American TV and radio was banned. Since the initial report, adult smoking rates have been cut in half. However, tobacco remains a major killer of Americans. Smoking - which is linked to 11 different types of cancer, chronic lung disease and heart disease - remains the leading cause of preventable and premature death in this country.
