Why Quit Smoking?

One of the best things you can do for yourself is to quit smoking! A very dangerous gas called carbon monoxide is in cigarette smoke. It is also found in car exhaust! It gets into your blood and doesn't let the oxygen in. That means your heart has to work even harder to get enough oxygen for your cells. When your blood is low in oxygen its also low in white blood cells - a very important part of immune system functioning!

In a study of 231 men being treated in Australia, men with visible warts were younger and nearly three times more likely to be current smokers than men without warts.
Research shows that smoking increases the risk of developing cervical cancer, possibly because smoking weakens the immune system’s ability to eliminate HPV.

 

Your body deserves more! Do yourself a giant favor - make a comittment to your health, quality of life and longevity - QUIT SMOKING!
