Weakened immune system and other risks of smoking
Smokers have reduced immune defenses and cannot resist illnesses especially those which affect upper and lower respiratory system. Smoking affects a person’s natural ability to withstand toxic substances and causes lots of health problems.
Healthy individuals have special proteins which work to protect the body from negative influence of harmful chemicals. Smokers kill or neutralize these proteins with such smoke-containing substances as cadmium, formaldehyde, acrolein and others.
The impact on the immune system is so great that dangerous processes can start to develop in the body of a smoker. The spontaneous cell growth leading to swellings or tumors in the lungs or other parts of the body is often a result of smoking cigarettes.
