How even one cigarette affects the human body

(ORDO NEWS) — Absolutely everyone has heard that smoking is very harmful to the body. At the same time, in 2020, approximately 22.3% of the world’s population were consumers of tobacco products.

Every year it is used in a variety of forms available today. It can be not only ordinary cigarettes, but also hookahs, cigars, as well as various kinds of smokeless tobacco products.

They cause the death of 8 million people. These are the consequences of smoking. What can happen to the body if literally one cigarette is smoked?

Just one cigarette has a devastating effect on human health. The US Surgeon General’s Office provided a report on how tobacco smoke causes disease.

The reason for such a terrible effect on the human body is that dozens of different substances of chemical origin are present in the composition of tobacco.

They can not only be addictive, but also significantly increase the risk of developing cancer, including lung cancer.

Immediately after a person smokes a cigarette, the following changes begin to occur in the body:

  • There is irritation of the mucous membranes in the nasal cavity and esophagus with smoke and chemicals.
  • Irritation of the bronchi leads to coughing. Too long exposure causes shortness of breath and wheezing in the lungs.
  • Those beneficial bacteria that are in the oral cavity begin to die, an unpleasant odor appears.
  • The gums may become inflamed.
  • Due to the movements of the muscles of the face during the inhalation of smoke, numerous small wrinkles appear around the mouth.

Half an hour after smoking, the consequences become more serious.

  • The pulse becomes more frequent, blood pressure rises.
  • Chemicals begin to be released in the brain structures, which leads to a feeling of euphoria.
  • There may be a desire to eat.
  • The body cannot fully break down and then remove lipoproteins or, in other words, “bad” fats.
  • Inhalation of tobacco smoke leads to its entry not only into the respiratory tract, but also into the gastrointestinal tract, which increases the production of gastric juice.

Even if a person smokes just one cigarette, the consequences for the body will make themselves felt for a long time.

Therefore, you do not need to start smoking, because it can cause the development of very serious diseases and even death ahead of time.
