Smoking is bad for you body

By: Guadalupe Verdinez

Article #1

A study added five diseases also found out that 60,000 deaths in the U.S were found. Before the study found these things out smoking was blamed for almost more than a million deaths a year in the country. There is 21 diseases and 12 types of cancer due to smoking.

Fact #1

”Some of the cancer types that you get from smoking are esophagus, stomach, colon, liver, pancreas, larynx, lung, bladder, and kidney cancer.” “Smoking also causes breast cancer or it makes breast cancer worse.” “Men who smoke and have prostate cancer will make the cancer worsen.” I think that men should stop if they have prostate cancer should stop smoking because they are going make their cancer worsen.

Fact #2

”Some of the diseases that a doctor found were diabetes, heart disease, artery diseases, chronic lung disease, pneumonia, influenza, and tuberculosis.” “These diseases have been previously established by a surgeon.” “You can also get intestinal disease which is caused by inadequate blood flow.” I think that when people start getting symptoms of any of those diseases to go to the doctor and see if they have a disease.

Fact #3

”Smoking can weaken the immune system and increase the risk of infection.” “It can also cause diabetes and high blood pressure.” “Smoking can cause many respiratory illnesses.” I think that people with respiratory illnesses should stop smoking because they can have a shortness of breath and they might pass out.

Article #2

The nations top doctor has concluded that smoking cigarettes cause colorectal and liver cancers, erectile dysfunction and ectopic pregnancy. A report to the nation was released on Jan. 17, 2014 stating that Surgeon Dr. Boris D. Lushniak expanded the list of illnesses that cigarette smoking has been scientifically proved to cause.

Fact #1

”Other health problems the report names are vision loss, tuberculosis, rheumatoid, arthritis, impaired immune function and cleft palates in children of women who smoke.” “Smoking has been associated with these illnesses but the report was the first time the federal government concluded that smoking causes them.” “Smoking is the largest cause of premature death in the country , killing more than 400,000 people a year.” I think that doctors should tell women who are pregnant and smoke what bad things will happen to their child if they keep on smoking and also they should tell them how bad it is for their body.

Fact #2

”The report notes that far more Americans died prematurely from cigarette smoking then in all the wars ever fought by the United States.” “Women who smoked were 2.7 times as likely as women who never smoked to develop lung cancer.” “By 2010 the additional risk had jumped nearly tenfold. For men the risk doubled over the same period.” I think that people who smoke should go to the doctor and check if they have something wrong in their body.

Fact #3

”While smoking causes most cases of lung cancer it causes only a small fraction of liver and colorectal cancers.” “A current smoker is 25 times as likely to develop lung cancer as someone who has never smoked.” “Also a smoker is 1.5 times as likely to develop liver cancer.” I think that people with a type of cancer that is caused by smoking to stop smoking and try and get better.

Article #3

A small amount of smoking for woman nearly doubles their risk of cardiac health researchers are reporting. Findings of a new study attempting to quantify how much and how long a woman has to smoke to increase their death risk and also how soon after quitting smoking does the risk of death drop.

Fact #1

"Researchers found that "even small-to-moderate" amounts of cigarettes smoked daily--one to 14 per day--were associated with an almost two-fold increase in sudden death." "Every five years of continued smoking was associated with an eight-per-cent increase in sudden cardiac death, said lead author Dr. Roopinder Sandhu, a cardiac electrophysiologist at the University of Alberta's Mazankowski Heart Institute in Edmonton." "Nicotine can promote plaque build up in heart vessels and stimulate the release of epinephrine and norepinephrine, stress hormones that increase heart rate." I think that woman who smoke should get a check up once in a while.

Fact #2

"It can decrease oxygen supply to the blood and make blood platelets stickier, increasing the risk of a blood clot." "During 30 years of follow-up, the researchers identified 351 women who had died of sudden cardiac death." "Compared to never smokers, smokers had a 2.44-fold increased risk of sudden death after researchers took known risk factors, such as age, diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol into account."

Fact #3

"Women who reported smoking one to 14 cigarettes daily had a 1.84-fold increase in sudden cardiac death risk." "Women who smoked 25 cigarettes or more had more than a three-fold increased risk of sudden death compared to never smokers." "The longer women smoked, the higher their risk: Women who smoked for more than 35 years were three times more likely to die during the follow-up than women who never smoked."
