Even though tobacco is linked most strongly with lung cancer per public opinion, it is more likely to lead to heart disease or other health problems. 

Sm0king has become a habit to many folks and they seem not to find anything wrong with the quantity they consume daily. The things about the diseases caused by sm0king harm almost every organ in the body.

2. Stroke 

Sm0king doubles the risk of stroke. According to the National Stroke Association, sm0king causes a lack of oxygen in the blood and makes the heart work harder. This makes blood clots form more easily and then the clots can block blood flow to the brain and cause a stroke.

3. Erectile dysfunction

Many studies have found that sm0king is a major factor in erectile dysfunction. Sm0king causes plaque build-up in the arteries and obstructs blood flow. In one study, men who sm0ked more than 20 cigar ettes a day had a 60% higher risk of developing erectile dysfunction.

4. Reproductive effects in women

Sm0king can cause ectopic pregnancy in women, which is when a fertilized egg implants somewhere other than the uterus. The egg can’t survive and, if left untreated, can be life-threatening for the mother. Sm0king also causes reduced fertility, meaning it makes it more difficult to get pregnant.

5. Lung Cancer

More people die from lung cancer than any other type of cancer. Cigar ette sm0king is the number one risk factor for lung cancer; it’s responsible for 87 percent of lung cancer deaths. Your chance of still being alive five years after being diagnosed is less than 1 in 5.

6. COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease)

COPD is an obstructive lung disease that makes it hard to breathe. It causes serious long-term disability and early death. COPD starts by making it hard to be active, such as playing with a grandchild, then usually gets worse, until climbing a short set of stairs or even walking to get the mail is exhausting or impossible.

It can leave people stuck in their homes, unable to do the things they want or see friends. About 80 percent of all COPD is caused by cigar ette smking.
