Smoking is one of the most common addictions in the modern world.

The carcinogenic effects of smoking are mainly the presence of tar. He who smokes regularly runs a greater risk of having lung cancer mouth cancer lip cancer and heart disease. Quitting smoking can have major health benefits while it does not matter what age you are. Let us now look at other reasons you if you are a smoker should quit smoking 1. Mental decline Smokers are more prone to dementia. So says Dutch researchers at the Erasmus Medical Center based on an analysis of over 9200 men and women aged 65-plus. They smokers go more than four times fast as mentally backward than non- smokers. The more people smoked cigarettes per day the greater the deterioration of their brains. 2. Blindness Smokers are three to four times as likely to become blind by age-related macular degeneration MD. In Western countries it is the leading cause of visual impairment and blindness. More than a quarter of all cases of MD are caused by smoking. A boost: by quitting smoking you lower your risk immediately. 3. Older skin Did you know that smoking and passive smoking makes your skin to grow older ten to twenty years before time Forties who smoke often have as many wrinkles as non-smoking sixties.

4. Snoring According to a survey of 15000 men and women Smoking can cause snoring. A quarter of smokers snored while only 14 of the non-smokers had suffered from it. The more cigarettes people flared during the day the more they snored at night. 5. Breast Cancer A large US study of more than 116000 women provides evidence that smoking is a major risk for getting breast cancer. During the four years that this study lasted were 2005 women who developed breast cancer. Among the women who smoked were 30 with more breast cancer than women who had never smoked. Most at risk were women who had started smoking before their first pregnancy before their twentieth year or at least five years. Too many years and more than twenty cigarettes a day increased the risk. The good news: the researchers found no evidence that women who had smoked in the past only ran a greater risk of breast cancer. Quitting smoking can protect one against breast cancer according to this research. 6. Early transition Young smokers are almost 60 percent more likely to get in the transition before their 45th year. The more you smoke the greater the chance. An early transition brings your health at risk because you therefore have more danger of heart disease and osteoporosis. Quitting smoking helps. Women who had done so a decade before menopause were found nearly 90 percent less likely to have a premature menopause than their smoking peers. 7. On average Smokers die 10 years earlier According to a 50 year old study people who smoke die on average 10 years earlier than non-smokers. These data were published by the British Medical Journal www.bmj.co.uk research which started in 1951 and was carried out by Professor Richard Doll. He sent questionnaires to 35000 physicians. Smokers are 50 percent more likely to die before their seventieth birthday than non-smokers.

Hot Flashes When you smoke you can get more and more intense hot flashes during menopause. The more you smoke the more likely its occurrence. 9. Slacker breasts American plastic surgeon Brian Rinker said 93 women came to him in order to correct their sagging breasts. On average they were 39 years old. They had been pregnant at least once and almost all of them had breastfed. However breast-feeding turned out not to be the cause of the change in shape of their breasts. Still the number of pregnancies had a role as with each pregnancy the breasts are softer. But even more surprising was the fact that even smoking was an important risk factor. Apparently smoking not only affects the elasticity of the facial skin but also those of your breasts. Smoking: The Facts - Nicotine addiction can strike at a very early age.
