Effects of Tobacco Use

Who does smoking harm?

We often hear about all the problems smokers encounter due to their bad addictive habits. But what about those around them? Sidestream smoke (smoke coming off the non-filtered end of the cigarette) has been shown to be even more dangerous to one's health than mainstream smoke (smoke enhaled by the smoker through the filtered end of the cigarette) because it has not been passed through the filter. Second hand smoke can cause cancer and other problems as well. Before you smoke think about how it can affect those around you.

Cigarette are bad but......

... Rumor has it cigars and chew aren't as bad. Those are still ok? Right? Wrong. Tabacco can also cause mouth cancer and cigars carry the same amount of risk if not more than cigarettes.
