The Disadvantages of Tobacco smoke

Tobacco smoke contains more than four thousand chemicals and some of which are harmful to the body.

  • Nicotine

This is the addictive drug present in tobacco. It stimulates the brain at first making the smoker feel alert and relaxes the muscles, later it dulls the brain senses. It causes the release of adrenaline. It increases heart rate and blood pressure. It makes the blood to clot easily so increases the chances of cardiovascular disorders. A small amount of nicotine can be useful because it makes us active by speed up blood stream activity. it is very dangerous for health even 0.07 gram of nicotine is a poison to blood.

  • Carbon mono oxide (CO1)

CO1 is very poisonous in nature and reduces the efficiency of red blood cells (RBC) to transport oxygen. It increases the rate at which fatty substances are deposited on the inner walls of artries causing their lumen to become narrower, so increases the risk of atherosclerosis. It increases the tendency of blood to clot an block blood vessels.

  • Tar 

Tar is a sticky brown substance that is the main cause of lung and throat cancer in smokers. Tar can also cause unsightly yellow-brown stains on fingers and teeth. There is 12 mg of tar and 0.95 mg of nicotine. It contains many cancer causing carcinogenic. These chemicals accelerate cell division in an uncontrolled manner, which result outgrowth and lumps of tissue(cancer). These blocks air sacks which reduce the efficiency of gaseous exchange. It also paralysis the cilia linings of air passages. So cilia are unable to remove dust particles from lungs and trachea.

  • Irritants
These irritants are Hydrogen Cyanide and Acrolein. These substances also causes paralysis of cilia. These causes secretion of mucus, causes a smokers cough, Coughing bursts the weekend wall of cilia, so decrease in surface area which result in lungs to become greatly reduced.


It also dangerous for these reason. The effects of tobacco smoke on the respiratory system include: irritation of the trachea (windpipe) and larynx (voice box) reduced lung function and breathlessness due to swelling and narrowing of the lung airways and excess mucus in the lung passages. ... permanent damage to the air sacs of the lungs.

Many smokers had asked that why do they smoke, some of them say to look cool, some of them say that they did not want to get old because smoking can cut out the life span of 25 years. And when we asked from them that do we have to smoke so they say that no, so we asked why do you smoke, they said that they have addiction of smoking, first they heard that smoking reveal tension but it did not reveal to it.
Look these are the dangerous things happens that can take your life to. In my opinion SMOKING KILLS.
