One of the harmful things that we can do to our body is to smoke cigarettes. In case you weren’t aware of the damage they can cause, here, we’ve prepared you a video that will show you how the lungs of people who don’t smoke look like versus the lungs of a person who is a heavy smoker.
The lungs of a person who is a non-smoker are red and look really healthy while the person who is a heavy smoker has lungs black in color that may easily acquire cancer. The healthy pair of lungs fills completely while the unhealthy ones can’t do that properly.
The video made its debut on the Internet when a nurse from North Carolina called Amanda Eller decided to show the world how harmful cigarettes are. The video comes with a warning and was widespread with the speed of light. Millions of people in the world smoke. More of them are men and about 2/3 of them start smoking before they are 18 years old.
87% of all deaths because of lung cancer were connected to smoking and 30% of deaths of cancer were also connected with smoking which is a shocking discovery. It was also proved that males have a 23% more increased risk of developing lung cancer than people who don’t smoke or have never smoked. Even 5 million deaths throughout the whole world are caused by smoking.
Still, smoking causes many other illnesses and not just cancer. Some of them are emphysema, chronic bronchitis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, as well as vascular diseases.
Take a look at the video and make sure you spread the word so that everyone who has this terrible habit becomes aware of its dangers.
